Of course Liefeld's cover on the regular version is a horrible piece of art. I really didn't have a problem with Avengelyne when Stinsman was drawing the issues. He wasn't a great artist, but he got the job done.

The Cabbot: Bloodhunter cover is horrible, which is surprising, since it appears to be a Stephen Platt cover. I enjoyed his run on Moon Knight, even if at times he was like a Todd McFarlane clone. Most of the covers (aside from Liefeld's) with just the female character are not bad, but the male characters all look stupid.

BTW, weird thing I just noticed, Stephen Platt doesn't appear to have a Wikipedia page any longer, I'm pretty sure there was one before.

I always wonder what happened to people like Stephen Platt & Randy Queen (Darkchylde). I was never really a fan of either. I thought Platt was better than many of the other artists out there, but that's not saying much.

Maximum Press was actually the first publisher to bring Battlestar Galactica back to comics after a long hiatus. This cover (and comic) is so bad that it's funny.

One thing I find interesting is there was a company who apparently was only in business to make Battlestar Galactica comics and nothing else, Realm Press. I liked their BG books better.

EDIT: posted this before I saw you had a Realm Press thread... Image

I liked Battlestar Galactica better than Star Wars, so seeing a comic in print mildly excited me despite the very bad art. I was quite pleased when the license shifted to Realm Press with fully painted realistically rendered artwork.

I'm looking at this thread and didn't realize I owned the later Avengelyne comics.
