Apologies to Joe Mad
I’ve gotten a lot of requests for a larger version of the first panel from today’s comic. I’m glad you guys liked it so much but I can’t take too much credit for it. I think I did a fair job of aping Joe Mad’s style, but if you think it’s a cool picture, then you should really check out his work.
Click on the image above for a nice big version.
Luke Plunkett over at Kotaku called Darksiders a “Creative Mess” In his review and laments Joe Madureira’s input. This statement alone is enough to make me think that he should probably never write game reviews again. Perhaps he should be relegated to stories about cakes that look like 1up mushrooms or cufflinks shaped like the Triforce.
He doesn’t like the designs in Darksiders, which in my book says more about Luke Plunkett than it does about Joe Mad. In reality the designs are fantastic. Joe’s work is energetic, iconic and just plain solid. The guy can fucking DRAW for real and Darksiders is overflowing with really inspiring visuals.
If you weren’t sure about the game, I highly recommend giving it a go. For my part I’ve had more fun with Darksiders than Bayonetta.
