Jim Lee To Draw Covers For Gears of War Comics
Hush *was* nonsense, just like most/all of Jeph Loeb's work.
Jim Lee on Gears of War... eh, that's sorta disappointing if you think about it. I mean, Gears of War is just about a bunch of big burly men in bulky armor, and while Lee is certainly capable of drawing that really well... he's usually best at drawing amazingly gorgeous women. In very revealing attire. Just don't think GoW has much of that. GoW doesn't have much of a story either, but uh, c'est la vie.
If done right a comic book can flesh out the story of universe by leaps and bounds. The most recent one that comes to memory is the dead space books. Those were great in every aspect. Epic created a universe with a lot of potential but have wasted most of that potential by focusing all the effort on mindless killing gameplay which is NOT bad but the games could have been so much richer in story content. Hopefully the comics will portray the universe as it deserves to be portrayed.
Wait, there's a Gears of War comic?
I'm not much into comics, but I do enjoy them from time to time...
I'm not a serious collector or a regular reader or anything, though...
I definitely think I've seen Jim Lee's art style in a few other comics. That stuff is pretty fuckin' awesome, so I'm glad he's on board.
Overall, I think video game to comic crossovers can work if they're done right. and from what I've read of the Gears of War comics (The one that came as a pre-order bonus with Gears 2) I think they're definitely doing it right.
If this is as good as the Dead Space comic was, it should be worth checking out. I mean, even if you never played Dead Space, the story still stood on its own. I certainly enjoyed it more than the direct-to-video cartoon (no offense to those who liked the latter). Many of the Warhammer comics were entertaining as well.
Congratulations for all the "HURH GEARS IS BULLSHARK TESTOSTERONE SOAKED SO WHY BOTHER" posts guys. Seriously, that's a new standpoint on the series.
It's a good hard sci-fi universe that deserves fleshing out. Sure, it's presented in that Epic way, but as long as you're secure in your sexuality, I think you can get past it.
