AARGH!!!!

I just read in this week’s Previews that starting in November, Humberto Ramos will be taking over the pencils on my flagship book, The Amazing Spider Man. I am outraged. Ramos’ art sucks. It’s seriously fucking awful. I mean…look at how he draws Spidey (left).

ARE YOU FUCKING KIDDING ME? They don’t even look human let alone super human. He makes Spidey and the FF look like have OD’ed on growth hormones. How he got this job, I don’t know. The editors at Marvel have lost their mind. The guy should not be doing super hero books. Honestly, this adds insult to injury considering the already awful run of Vertigo like artists on the book for the past few months. Sometimes I wondered if I was reading ASM or Madman.

ASM was the first book I ever bought back in 1974 at Rexall Drug in Racine, WI. Ross Andru was the artist at that time and will always be the onyx standard for Spidey. There are plenty of artists around today who can draw super heroes the way they should be drawn. Neil Edwards’ work on Fantastic Four is an example of this. John Romita Jr.’s work on The Avengers is another example. Can’t either one of these guys do a run on the book?

Of course, I can’t stop buying it because it is Spidey and the first book I ever bought. Maybe there’s a way I can just focus on the words.
