If I ever meet Steve Ditko (unlikely), these are what I am asking him to sign:
Oh, don't let the halfway decent cover art fool you. The art in these books is completely phoned in.
Look at them! They look like I drew them! When I was six! With my feet!
This is my favourite panel. This is how our three heroes meet Leader-1 for the first time:
He punches the little girl in the face through a window. I'm not sure if the kids are yelling "Help! Aliens!" or if that's what Leader-1 is saying. With his fist.
And here's the very next panel:
Those are some awkward proportions. The basic laws of physics would not allow that to happen. That kid in the orange jacket would basically have to be growing out of the mustache man's back. And the girl would have to have no legs.
Two panels later, the remarkably calm humans get a proper introduction:
"Yes, and I also have a few more questions for you to field: What the hell just happened? Am I high? and also, Could you please not punch us in the face again?"
God dammit! I expect quality in my Gobots super adventure books! I mean, by looking at this shoddy art one would get the impression that Ditko didn't care about this project. Almost as if he were only doing it for the money!
The joke's on you, Ditko collectors! You can't truly say your collection is complete until you own these fabulous volumes.
