war is hell by garth ennis art by howard chaykin


fighter planes, they look pretty sweet right? well in garth ennis new comic war is hell howard chaykin manages to make old planes with guns attached to them look like flying piles of garbage...and shit. now I'm not going to say much here that christian hasn't already said. yes i think garth ennis is sweet, yes i love planes with guns on them, and of course war is awesome, but the art is just so booty its unbearable. I'm going to give this comic one more chance, i did the math and the pros definitely outweigh the cons, but the art is just so important to me i cant see garth ennis saving this one. i think stan lees step brothers best friend or whoever the hell this guy is, just ruined a perfectly good fighter plane.

Funny, I remember Chaykin doing some arwork for Hawkgirl... She came out looking just like a flying pile of garbage, too (coffee grounds, banana peels, diapers, etc). What's his deal?

howard chaykin has a legacy of doing really ground breaking work in the 80's and did a really sweet book called american flagg.wiki that shit it's cool.homeboy can write comic fer sure.but this art will not stand....my wallet can't abide.
he did the 50th ish of punisher and guess what ...crap fighting feces on top of the trash heap,playing king of the mountain....while shooting at each other korean knock offs of nerf guns.
