Gn #8

Posted by GregF , Jun 11 2010 · 1,478 views

Got my copy of Papercutz GN #8 in the mail today. I must say, the art is gorgeous, especially on the first story -- really captures that creepy, claustrophobic feel I was going for. At first, I thought they might have overdone the snowstorm, as it makes things kind of hard to see at times .. then I realized that worked, because it IS hard to see in a snowstorm and that is part of what makes the baterra's sudden appearances and disappearances so effective.

Overall, a great job by Christian Zanier.

If Greg says it's good it must be good. Greg, you've just motivated me to go get it today rather than next week. tongue.gif

Uh, assuming Graphic novels count as comics under the spoiler policy, I'd better use a tag just to be safe....

Hmm, yes the preview at the end of GN#7 did look really cool - the snowstorm thing being effective.
But what I'm really interested in is All Our Sins Remembered, featuring the art of Stuart Sayger. Is it as great as it looks?

While the first comic was indeed impressive, I actually found the second one far better as far as art is concerned. Sayger... well, you know, I kinda disagree with his depiction of

We can't talk about GN 8 for a while guys.

We saw a preview of the first chapter a while back so it's enough to comment on some of the art.

Some of the art seen in the preview, sure. I am talking about other images.

Coincidentally, I got my copy today too, and I must agree, the art is gorgeous, and it's especially nice to see more of Zanier's work, having seen the shorter Hydraxon comic. Personally, I like the Skrall story's art the most, as I prefer the colouring Zanier does himself to the less gradiated tones the colourist for the Malum story used.

Regardless, all the art, and indeed the story, is very awesome. Very well done to Greg and the artists on an excellent read!

Hmm... I think I'm going to go check my mailbox right now. Hope I got it!

EDIT: Well, I did get it! smile.gif

And since I don't want to spoil anything, I will only mention one part un-related to the story. I really like the interview that you did at the end, and it was kind of cool how you mentioned BZPower.

Ironic, I got mine too. Though I haven't really taken the time to actually look at it. I just have this little voice telling me to wait, and it'll be better then.

I have gotten GN 9, but not 8 yet. I really cant wait for it, though. Wait, which story in GN 8 does Stuart Sayger illustrate? I thought Christian Zanier was doing ALL the artwork for GN 8.

Sayger illustrated All Our Sins Remembered, the third story in the book.

I thought the art was good too. I think having Sayger illustrate All Our Sins Remembered was a good thing. His style is very dark and goes well with the story.

I think Zanier would have done all three, but didn't have the time. I mean, look at how many times it's been delayed in the past. I think Papercutz really couldn't afford many more delays.

I've recieved it today as well. Quite a short read, but interesting. The art was superb, (and even though I'm not all for Sayger's ELs, the art featured was good too. BTW, someone has to send him some Mata Nui robot concept art, I think tongue.gif)

The script? As good as always. I felt as if I was reading more a book than just a comic: it's quite clear that this time there were no rushes in the scripts (I mean, read any of the 2010 comic, it's obiously rushed since it had to be done quickly and feature all story on just 32 pages), so the quality is 100% good.

I really, really hope GN #10 sees the light of day. Really.

PS: Zanier's Tuma is incredibly accureate.
