Geez guys. All this wind and thunder over a handful of rough sketches.
Can we wait until we see some finished work from this team before we start rending our garments and swearing off reading the magazine forever?
Hey, maybe I'm hardened, since I read my way through the Marvel 90's when Conan was drawn to look like the Hulk's mentally disadvantaged albino brother by guys nobody's heard of before or since.
Personally, I'm more concerned about what they do with the story. Yeah, Conan's too skinny for my liking - but Belit looks great, and I'm intrigued by the art style. It's light years beyond '90s Marvel Conan:
That what he looked like inside the issue.
But I like her Belit. Looks more like Belit than Buscema's version. Perhaps Cloonan is trying to depict a Belit who was capable of manipulating Conan. But she makes Conan look too weak, psychologically as well as physically.
I love big John, but he had a habit of making his girls all look like Maud Adams facially. Clood's Belit looks different from the women in previous issues and arcs in the series, which is good, because Belit should be memorable even without a "uniform."
Possibly a woman's take on how Conan should look. I guess the other 50% of our species should have a crack at it.
Well, we've already had Marian Churchland:
And Judith Hunt:
And, of course, Ruth Keegan (albeit as a collaboration with Jim)
So, I don't think it's 'cause she's a lassie.
