Re: The Art of Todd McFarlane (2012)

Todd McFarlane's a weird one for me, on the one hand I was young when his stuff came out so he definitely inspired me, but I also have issue with his style in the 90s (I will modify that and say I don't know the most recent of his work that I've seen).   Having said that, I'm checking out a Tumblr of his work and I do love his sense of humour when it comes to homages and the like (and he seems like an interesting guy, too), and I do remember his messed up Wizard of Oz toys and that news bit a year or so ago about how some movie company bought the rights to those toys and would make a movie based on them, but of course you can't actually make THAT movie so it wound up being a Ripley-style Dorothy, which is cool but you didn't need THOSE toys and THOSE rights to get you there, did you?

I don't buy art books any more (no money plus no room), but even if I did I probably wouldn't buy this one, but I would TOTALLY take a good hard long look through it as a trip down memory lane.  But my art tastes lie elsewhere.

Having said that, he did do the best webbing.
