Marvel Action Force - Remastered. 'Death or Glory'

Postby Malcolm Orr » 23 Jul 2009 18:01

Here's a project to update some of the MAF era strips to look better for the 21st century.

I remember this one at the time, partly because it's a dark and grim story, but partly, as a kid collecting AF figures in Carlisle, to see that Carlisle is where much of the action occurs.

The comics were altered to improve contrast and colours, recolourisation of some of the more bizarre colour choices, light and shading, other embellishments (signs, Z force badges for Trent etc), then a light grain added to give it a less flat and grittier feel.

Here's a comparison...

It's a big improvement, I wonder just how many good comic art has been ruined by poor choice colouring or bad inking over the years?
I know most stuff done on computer nowadays..but I've often seen great looking artists' orginal artwork @ shows that had looked terrible when I'd seen then in print!
More news, as its made, from new Action Force!
