    I think Lorna's facial expressions come off different in this new art than the originals. She looks tougher and more mature to me in the originals than in the new art. I'm not saying the art is "bad" or that it's a big deal. I'm just saying how it looks to me. It could be argued that all the characters generally looked more mature than they should have in the original comic given their ages.
    The Cockrum page of Lorna in the storm, up page, is much stronger than the redraw. All the characters have a very Neal Adams vibe(which, if I remember from old interviews with Dave was deliberate, plus they are of the same artistic generation).

    Thats Jen Bartel who in general tends to make the character look younger. Its part of her more cartoonish style which is less gritty

    I like the tribute's idea, but most of the side by side comparisons make the modern artists look bad even if I do think they're all pretty competent artists in their own right.
    That being sad, Brooks could tone down all that shine. Storm looks metallic.

    I would have preferred to see a modern artist redraw the issue from their interpretation of the script instead of reproducing the exact same panels.

    Definitely good-looking art though, no lie.

    I don't know why they even bother coming up with a redraw.

    Other than a few pages, most of the pages are much much worse than the original art. The original art is so much more exquisitely drawn.

    Some years ago, I was joking about Marvel being so obsessed with nostalgia pandering that they should just stop telling new stories and remake the old ones with modern art.
    I guess it's really happening.

    I finally got and tried to get through it. It was awful. I had no idea and I guess I should have - that the art was going to be a variety of artists. Some art was very good, some amazing and even better than the original, and some absolutely not my style at all (to be polite). the difference in some was too jarring for me. I guess I thought it was going to be one consistent art style throughout, my fault. I won't be getting any others.
