What happened to Thor's helmet wings? Thank Odin he can still fly without them!!
You'd think Chic would have put those helmet wings in. He must of not trusted himself to execute them properly to draw them in. I mean, how can you miss that? He must of said, "the heck with it". And then not to catch it in production? Don't be surprised if you see a version of this with the wings from me.
Yeah, it's a very tough angle to draw them properly. Plus you're gonna have them obscured somewhat by his cape on the right side and the gun blast on the left; so in a way it's not surprising if everyone did just say 'the heck with it.'
You think Chic Stone is going to forget something like this? The cape is being tossed around, and they are behind that at this angle.
Honestly, you look at this page and that's what you see to comment on?! I'm taking your Kirby fan cards away for the rest of the day.
Forgetting to draw the wings on Thor's helmet is like forgetting to draw the Thing's unibrow. It's a major part of the look. It is a nice page though. And look--Johngentil has an avatar now--you obviously thought something was missing to finally get your face in there. How appropo. Or should I say, "the irony?"
Yeah, I cut off the top of my head to hide the wings just like the cape did in the comic page.
I have an avatar now... because I got my computer fixed! Could you add one from Android or iOS? Never figured that out.
Don't be too harsh with yourself. it's not like if everybody could look as good as me!
