Comics in the 90s vs. Comics Now

3 Mar

I just recently got an old Detective Comics Batman comic, and it made me think of the status of comics in the 90s vs. comics now.  The comic was probably circa 1992, and it had an awesome Matt Wagner cover, and the art inside was really not up to par.  It seems that when there are boom times for the comics industry, the quality of the art really goes down.  In a boom, anybody who can hold a pencil is hired.  Eventually the market crashes, and the bad artists are (mostly) weeded out.
