Hehe - I'd probably buy those, too :)
I did buy the Mcfarlane versions from way back.

A friend once said that Image characters make good action figures. I have to agree.

You do? :wink:

Usually you and I are on the same page, Jeff, but I can't agree with you here. There are too many characters I'd prefer to see before Youngblood. Like Hellboy, or the Goon (and Frankie), or Invincible.

I wouldn't mind Supreme, though, since he was saved by Alan Moore.

That's ok, Poe! I've gotta go off on a crazy tangent every once and awhile.

I admit it. I like Liefeld. I like his art. I like the characters. I want toys!

;-)

I want all those other characters you mentioned, too!

Fear not! There was a time I, like many, many fans, thought Rob Liefeld's art was amazing. I even own a copy of New Mutants #87.

But even back then, I preferred the work of Mike Mignola--I was probably one of five people who was happy when he guest-penciled X-Force #8. My first exposure to Mignola was the oft-overlooked Wolverine: the Jungle Adventure.

I go waaaay back with Mignola.

My first exposure to his work was in a supplement to the fantasy RPG RuneQuest published (back then) by Chaosium. I think it was an illo of a dragonewt.

I was very excited when he began working in comics. I can't remember the first comic I saw him do...Rocket Racoon? Was that before his Alpha Flight and Hulk work? Oy....so long ago...

But, I've dug Mignola since that first drawing I saw. That had to be in the 80s.

Yes, Rocket Raccoon pre-dates the superhero stuff.

My first exposure to him was this cover :

Just kickass. Been a huge fan ever since. He's just so different from every other artist...very atmospheric.

Peace,

Chip

Okay, now's our chance to get a figure of mighty Supreme! I love this character as he first appeared, before the terrible confusion after issue # 25 and the tamed reboot of Alan Moore. Jesse, let's do it!

You may be the only person alive that prefers the original Supreme to the Alan Moore version. :D

You may be right! But I loved the no-holds-barred arrogance of Supreme as we first met him: Superman with a Supersized ego! WHat a wild character! By contrast, when Moore (whose work in Watchmen, Miracleman, etc., I dearly love) revamped the character/book, I felt I was seeing a kind of gentle satire of the Silver Age Superman, and that was a totally different take on the character. I missed the original Supreme, who I still think is unique.
