This is the thing, John Romita Jr could be perfect even under the crunch, sometimes for several years straight. Not a bump on the road to be seen. Here’s a fraction.
Stories by Anne Nocenti & Chris Claremont. Various inks by Dan Green and Al Williamson.
80s John Romita Jr.
This was one special run… JRJR’s work on DD could be so delicate, his line weight so precise. Really majestic, inspiring stuff - and to do it all on the monthly grind. Incredible. He was also working from great material. AN’s scripts managed to credibly combine street level drama with powerful, apocalyptic themes. That book, that era… It was just so good.
Miles Morales, the Ultimate Spider-Man.
Dixon’s Notch #3 WIP.
Every now and then I get asked whether or not a person should get Manga Studio 5, or if they should shell out the extra money for Manga Studio 5 EX.
First things first, it should be noted that 5 and 5EX are practically the same. Brushes, 3D objects, Materials, Rulers, Filters…they are identical in both versions of the program. What 5EX gives you is a couple of desktop publishing features that help streamline work on a multi-page story.
Now, do you need these functions? That’s going to depend on your workflow. They certainly can help keep your story organized, as well as cut down the amount of time needed to make story-wide image changes.
If you don’t feel that the EX-exclusive functions are worth the extra money, then you can purchase Manga Studio 5 knowing that you will have all of the same functions, tools, and other means of drawing your comic book page as its bigger brother.
Hope this helps any of you out there who have been on the fence about which to purchase!
