Random Panels of Comic Book Weirdness # 16


The METAL MEN were a truly unique set of characters with unique (if repetitive) storylines and consistently solid art from the Andru/Esposito team (and later Gil Kane). Then Mike Sekowsky "humanized" them in what is now recognized as a WTF moment. Every shred of what made this book interesting was simply trashed.

i dislike Mike Sekowsky's are so much that i refuse to buy the Showcase JLA books.
Even as a pre-teen I never ejoyed his art and avoided JLA.
Other artists of past that I disliked were:
Don (what the) Heck; George Tuska and Wayne (quite) Boring.
And to a lesser extent...Al Plastino.

Tuska ruined Iron Man and Don Heck ruined Iron Man, Flash, and The Avengers.

Of the above comment all I can say is WOW!
As far as this version of the Metal Men is I would like to see it but I never have. It looks unique.
