I have to say something first. Jim Lee is probably the reason why I was interested in drawing comic books back in ´91. Alan Davis was my first serious approach to comic books, but Jim Lee was the reason I kept on buying them.
He was THE artist, he influenced a crowd of aspiring artists, and still he was the best of all of them, everytime he made a cover, or a pin-up, the comic book community stopped and watched.
But at some point, he lost it. I stopped being interested in his work around the time he got mixed with DC. Dunno why, but to me, it looked like he was just more interested in being head of whatever department than an artist. And that´s ok. I respect that.
What I dont respect is this:
Yes, apparently he was the designer for the new 52 Harley Quinn. One of the most adorable characters ever, one of the few fully clothed female characters, was turned into this. By Jim Lee.
He was responsible for the most succesful looks of the X-men, (succesful in terms of people recognizing them, rememeber X-men Animated series was a hit, and the reason why a lot of people is reading Marvel right now) He has drawnthe best Rogue ever, until Coipel came and won the title.
And now he is drawing the new Superman comic-book, the one is targeting new readers thanks to the movie. And this is what Jim Lee is doing there
So I guess someone has been influenced by egyptian art….
I´m posting this here and on my facebook just in case…
Bendis, dear, if you ever think of using the excuse of the Void splinter to justify Cyclops actions, I will never, EVER, buy one of your comics again. No, not even those drawn by Bachalo or Immonen.
You´ve read it here first

Facebook Challenge time!
Harley Quinn + Thor: Veles AKA PunchLine (thanks Joe!!)
that was a hard one, because the obvious choice would be going all Loki with him, lucky for me, my mythology notes came handy, and suddenly… Veles appeared.
Veles, a trickster, is the archnemesis of Perun, slavic god of storms. they are involved in a death-by-lightning/resurrection cycle.
4th Facebook Challenge Poison Ivy + Charles Xavier. Hard One
Dr. Charlotte Isley was a famous genetist professor and founder of a farm school where she teached respectful ways of treating all life. During a protest against an illegal lab of genetically modified plants she suffered an accident that turned her into Opium, the mind controlling human-plant mutant.
Third Facebook Chanllenge: Joker + Banshee
Mr Punch: English prankster spirit, misschievous to the point of cruelty, easily recognizable by his loud laughter
Second Facebook Challenge: Silver Surfer+Green Lantern
