In before LOLtron. :P

Marvel, via Hero Complex, has revealed artwork for the first issue of All-New Marvel NOW! Iron Fist #1. Kaare Kyle Andrews will be writing, penciling, inking, coloring and doing the covers for the series that he describes as “a bloody, revenge-fueled martial arts epic.”

Wow, I'm excited for the prospect of another Iron Fist series, however, I'm not really familiar with Andrews' work. If these pages are an indication of what to expect, I'm really hesitant to pick this up.

The less Kaare Andrews one has to see, the better.

People don't like stylized art. I seem to remember people bitching about Aja on immortal iron fist.

I think all the best, and often the most popular, artists have quite stylized art. It's the artists on either extreme--the ones who have totally off-the-wall styles or, conversely, the ones who have bland house styles--who aren't much loved. The off-the-wall guys "draw" too much attention to their art and the story in turn suffers. The bland guys fail to bring the stories to life, even if a technical level they are competent illustrators.

Aja's a strong storyteller and a stylized artists. That said, I wasn't thrilled by his work on Iron Fist. I preferred him on Daredevil for some reason.

I wish more mainstream Big 2 books were stylized.

Looks good. Hopefully they get him back into green and yellow. I hate the white outfit.

Eventually, maybe. However, there is a strong mindset that Lee and his million clones are great art. My father in law even went so far to say that the story in New Frontier overcame the crap art in the book. Having worked in a shop and looking at sales, his is the prevailing mentality.

While we might champion the better artists (and I don't mean to denigrate Lee a much as the Silvestri's of the world), they take a lot longer to get a following than those guys do. There is a reason that the first class of Image could safely walk from Marvel.
