Le 21/11/2022 à 13:14:28I didn't even think it would be that bad. Without even comparing it to the Metabarons of Gimenez or Kastaka, it's really bad. The visuals are very bad: the character designs and locations are very faded and unmemorable--just monstrous for a sci-fi comic. But even regardless of the design, the drawing style itself, the lines, the coloring, and the storyboard are very mediocre. The low detail and blurry backgrounds make it look like a very cheap American comic book that was hastily concocted in a couple of weeks. Sort of like the weekly Marvel or DC issues of Batman or the Avengers. A very low bar. The publisher had options for artists who had already established themselves in this universe: Sécher and Ladrönn. There are other just terrific artists who could have been brought in: Mukesh Singh, Esad Ribic, Jérémy, Travis Charest. Or great artists who have never worked with Jodoverse: Jaime Calderón or Riccardo Federici. After all, if they wanted something totally new, why not approach artists from the East? For example, Katsuya Terada or Sakamoto Shinichi - their Metabaron comics would have looked amazing in color. What were Les Humanoïdes Associés trying to accomplish? How could they trust their most important franchise to this? The sad demise of the series.
