150 – Deadman

I don’t know what the flippity-flap is going on with Deadman in the ol’ comical books, but I know he’s got a strong presence in the New DCU, a member of Justice League Delayed and Justice League Dark, plus a solo story as an opening salvo for the New DCU anthology book.

But every time I see Deadman as a buff dude, I’ll do my best to avoid that story. Some artists simply define the way a character should be drawn by being balls-out awesome at it, and Kelley Jones kicked the ever-loving shit out of how Deadman should be drawn. I certainly didn’t do any justice to that here. But Kelley Jones is an amazing artist, and I love it when he works on comics I’d actually want to read.

    Where is Kelley Jones in all this re-DUC hubbub?

    He’d be great on one of the “dark” books. But I think he mostly just does books I don’t want to read with Steve Niles.
