Galactus Devouring His Herald (print)
Awww, that’s so pretty.
Being Galactus’ Herald has it’s hazards. Why do you think he kept looking for replacements?
Really? Even if that thing captured half of the vicious mania of the original Goya, it would be a pale, paint-by-numbers (in multiple ways) exercise in tepid pulp. Fun for a lark, but don’t pay money for that junk food.
sounds like a troll with penis envy to me eh?
What’s with this immediate application of the “troll” label? Did I say anything gratuitously provocative? Am I a failed artist whom you know to be prone to jealousy (I’m not, nor do I even know if this artist is actually successful in any way)? Or was what I said an actual criticism that you just didn’t like? It’s plainly the latter, and the most substantive thing your reply contained was the completely arbitrary use of “penis envy”, which makes your comment the rhetorical equivalent of “umadbro?”, or a racial slur, or really any of the internet’s other empty slings. So who’s the troll?
The argument over what’s art or not is an ACTUAL argument we could have. Feel free to try it out.
I think that you’re supposed to Google ‘Galactus penis envy’.
I had such high expectations for that search. Sadly, the Internet has failed me again.
When I saw the headline I thought that this was going to be about, um, beans.
Everyone knows Galactus is a douchebag.
Yep. Galactus leaves the crusts.
Not for sale outside the US. Boo.
We were warned.
Even our True Belief cannot save us.
Waiting for “The Sleep of Reason Produces Monsters”/Night Owl remix.
Francisco De Goya y Lucientes was, is, and always shall be, FUCKING AWESOME.
Goya IS the original lolcat guy!
I went to an exhibit of his Disasters of War when I was about eight years old. This one stuck with me. Good times.
