NOW THAT'S A SPLASH PAGE: Guardian Breaks Some $#%@

Splash pages, you gotta love 'em. A blank canvas where the artist can hit you with a large dose of illustrated 'wow'. This week, the splashie you all knew was coming - one from artist  Dale Eaglesham and the series they'll need a 12-step program to remove me from; Alpha Flight.

Looking at this I click why Dale is such a good fit for the maple leaf marvels. Not only is he himself Canadian, his style on the book evokes that of creator John Byrne to the point the art feels both modern and homely at the same time.

Poor robots - they just don't build 'em like they used too!

  3. You sir are correct in that Dale Eaglesham is a perfect fit for AF! And also he does sport the necessary credentials to help modernize/revamp AF for a new generation while also kinda' showing that great, sturdy art that used to be John Byrne's calling card.
