Fuck-No-Greg-Land

I was wondering if you considered Adam Hughes' art sexist ? Because they sometimes are in sexy poses and everything but I really don't mind here since it actually looks possible. Sorry, I know it's a Greg Land blog but I didn't know who else to ask.

Okay first let me state that this is my (Joan) personal opinion. I don’t speak for the other runner of this blog, Ava, or anyone else.

Adam Hughes art does in fact bother me. On a lot of his lady heroes he draws very defined camel toes and other equally bothersome things. The proportions are much more realistic than Greg Land’s art, that’s true, but that isn’t the only problem with Land’s art. Just like Land I feel that Hughes draws women as sex objects rather than heroes a lot and tries to make how sexy the are the focus point and that’s not something I’m entirely comfortable with. Art like that has a time and place obviously but for me that place is not in the comics I want to read. I’m not interested in how sexy female superheroes can be that’s not why I read comics and most of the time it’s not just sexy poses in Adam Hughes art it’s also nipples visible through their costumes, defined camel toes, and other things I find that make me uncomfortable. I do find it sexist and demeaning sometimes, but I wouldn’t put him on the same level of Greg Land considering Land is well known for tracing porn.

That’s the best answer I can give.

I honestly don’t know how this hasn’t made it up here yet. From Ultimate Fantastic Four #23

I love the completely dead eye expression, not to mention the sex doll mouths.

I didn't really think about art turning me off from a piece until it was super obvious in the throwback Mighty Avengers, so I looked up who was drawing that and surprise, it's the same reason I couldn't get through Ultimate Power and got turned off of Ultimate Fantastic Four and Uncanny X-Men.


Yeah Greg Land will do that. If you can’t read his stuff then you’re not gonna want to pick up the new Spider-Woman solo either.

I'm sick of people hating on Greg Land, I like his work and don't care what he traced or copied to create it. In the photoshopped world of current comic book art, what difference does it make? In a recent issue of Mighty Avengers he had Cage, Cage's father, Blue Marvel and Blade on the same page and made them all distinguishable from each other, without having to rely on their clothing and costumes. Do you realize how rare that is in comics, where artists tend to make all black men look alike?


Honestly I couldn’t tell them much apart. In the 70s flashback of those issues I had to keep straight who had glasses, no glasses and mustache, and finally no glasses and no mustache. They all had the same identical hairstyle and the usual Greg Land go-to face shape. BUT that being said we of course recognize that other artists also have a same-face problem and many more who don’t put emphasis on being able to tell poc males apart which is exceptionally shitty.

HOWEVER this blog encourages you to like what you like. We have absolutely no issue with fans of Greg Land, it’s just not our cup of tea. Like what you like and don’t let anyone else’s opinions get you down. Who cares what strangers on the internet think of an artist you like, you know?

#the nightmare

Maybe they've made Jess an amputee for whatever reason in her new series. "How can Spiderwoman save the world with no legs? Find out in this thrilling issue!" But let's hope Land is only on the series for like 5 issues and then ever again.


What happens when a blow-up doll replaces Jessica Drew? Find out next issue!

I feel Hopeless about the Spider-Woman solo. Because of Land and a variety of reasons. Hopefully it proves to be like Mighty Avengers where the writing is so good that it makes the Land art worth suffering through. But I’m not optimistic.

YES, AWESOME! More female-led books from Marvel, and it’s Spider-Woman, this’ll be great!

What … no NO NO … MARVEL WHY??? All we’ll get is sameface and porn poses and weird hips!

Well, let me not jump the gun, maybe it won’t be that bad.

Well, I guess I’ve seen worse … wait a second, what’s THAT??

Where are her calves … and why no feet, what IS THIS?

I can’t … you know what, I give up. 

#perfect commentary

Did you hear Greg Land is doing the new Spider-Woman solo title? She's my favourite character and I want to support her having a solo title but I don't want to support Greg Land. I'm so upset :(


I heard, I’m incredibly devastated because I love Jess and I’m sure Ava feels the same. Why out of all the titles being put out right now did he have to be on a female solo?!

Personally I’m not a huge fan of the writer either, in fact the only thing I think I truly like about Dennis Hopeless is that his last name sums up how I feel about his writing, but I can’t speak for Ava’s opinion on that.
