Marvel Ruins # 2

Writer: Warren Ellis
Artist: Cliff Nielsen, Terese Nielsen, Chris Moeller
Publisher: Marvel
Published: September 1995

Marvel Ruins 2 concludes the dark and uncaring story of the marvels. As much as I dislike this comic (see previous post on Marvel Ruins), the artwork is still outstanding. However, somewhere during the production, the art switches format. Halfway through, Moeller takes over and his artwork is adequate, but entirely different than Nielsen's. This leads issue 2 to being a a disjointed affair, further downgrading the quality of this dark and twisted tale. Take for instance the two below panels by Nielsen and Moeller, respectively. As you can see, vastly different, but well done, even though the story is lacking.
