Quote:I was at Comic Expo yesterday and Tom DeFalco was there. While some didn't like DeFalco's FF run, with Ben's helmet, Sue's boob window and other things, I actually loved the DeFalco run. Many disliked what DeFalco did, but I found it amusing and interesting. The FF was fun during his run.
I hated the run. But loved that Paul Ryan art and how colorful it was.
Quote:Tom spoke fondly of the FF and we briefly lamented Marvel's handling of the FF and lack of an FF title. Tom said that people who don't like what Marvel is doing should write Marvel and let them know. He says that if enough people do it, they will eventually listen. Whether or not they do something is another story.
Quote:I have DeFalco's Fantastic Four Guide (DK) and his "Comics Creators on Fantastic Four" - both are great acquisitions for any FF fan. The latter is one of the most insightful books available on what went into the thought processes behinds various runs on the FF.
Quote:Overall, DeFalco is nice guy and it was very interesting to hear his perspective on Marvel and the FF.
For me, the art is equally as important as the writing. Maybe more so. But the best combinations have both strong art and writing.
Paul Ryan was a great artist and I felt he really made DeFalco's run look good.
