I picked up the mummy: palimpsest by peter milligan and ronilson freire
Published by Titan, the story itself is an enjoyable romp, however this is one of the worst cases I’ve seen recently of art and colours really detracting from what could have been a very solid book.
It’s really hard to easily see what is going on for various reasons and it really badly impacts the flow of the book;
Hard to tell individuals apart due to both art and colours
Hard to tell groups of people apart
Poor panel layouts
Can’t tell between stuff set in the past and present day
Lack of facial expressions
And just poor rendering in places
I don’t want to crucify anyone but I think it’s important to be honest about these thing, especially when I’m very much forthcoming with praise when it’s due
Bit of shame as this could have been a better book.
