I totally agree! I for one enjoy Budd's creativity with the Universal monsters and having Meriem in a setting other than the jungle. Besides it's only temporary as Kevin has stated. As for his release schedule, people need to remember not only is he a self published independent creator, but Budd also does the pencilling, lettering, inking & coloring all by himself! Even bigshots like Jim Lee & J. Scott Campbell, who only pencils and worked for DC, Marvel & Image Comics, can't even get a book out on a consistent basis. Count me as one who likes Meriem's appearance more now than when the series began in '94.|
: Hi all,
: Longtime Cavewoman fan here. Been
: collecting since the very first miniseries,
: although I did miss the middle few issues of
: Pangaean Sea. Great comics, I love Budd's
: I've never posted on the board before, but
: I've been a lurker for some time. Scanning
: the recent posts this evening, I was
: surprised to see quite a few negative themes
: popping up again and again. The release
: schedule (or lack thereof) of issues of
: Cavewoman is an issue. The coherence of
: storylines in Cavewoman is another. Even
: Budd Root's evolving art style and depiction
: of the Cavewoman character are called to
: I guess my question is this: Why the
: negativity on a Budd Root Cavewoman message
: board? If the evolution of the presentation
: of the book (regarding time and mature
: imagery) bothers or offends you or
: something, why stick around? If you don't
: care to keep waiting for an issue of a comic
: which you do not enjoy, why keep waiting?
: If an evolving art style enhances the
: approach to figure drawing in ways you don't
: enjoy (or perhaps find offensive for some
: reason), whay keep paying attention to the
: artist? I find that if I lose interest in
: something or it changes in ways I don't
: enjoy, I tend to stop talking about it, let
: it go, move on to something else. Who has
: the time to spend on stuff they don't like?
: I know I don't. Maybe it's just me.
: Anyway, I was just curious. I really enjoy
: the Cavewoman comics, and all the other
: books Budd has worked on. I hope he keeps
: it up.
