Oh, what I wouldn't give to see Floating Heads on a Marvel comic today!

Here is our Flashback Universe homage to such covers...

Add to that, the lack of word balloons. If I ran a comic company, I would bring that back!

Really? Marvel's abandoned the floating heads? I don't know enough about recent books to know.

I just know that comics (especially Marvel's books) rely on too wide a color palette, which tends to make them murky and grey at times.

I just came back from a comic store and it was a depressing experience! Everything is dark and grey nowadays!
