The artist who did a bad job drawing Carol Danvers in Indigenous Voices does just as bad a job with Batman

Some may recall Kyle Charles, a Canadian artist who drew a very poor portrait of the real Ms. Marvel in the Indigenous Voices special last year. Now, as reported by CTV News, he got a job drawing Batman for DC, and shows no signs of improvement:
“A light beard on him, and like a little wider frame, a bit older, just a little bit tougher looking... it's awesome to be able to draw that form of Batman in the Dark Knight returns style, so I had a lot of fun with it,” Charles told CTV News.

[...] “I’m super pleased with how it looks, the cover is really good, I think the art on it is fantastic. As a special bonus to us DC comics acknowledging its our 35th anniversary actually allowed us to put Enigma on the cover of the book!” said Bryenton.
I'm sorry to say, but that cover looks pretty dull, not all that different from the kind of illustrations Rob Liefeld was known for years ago. Even Frank Miller was never this mediocre in the 80s.
Charles has previously worked with Marvel Comics drawing for the Indigenous Voices series just a few years after he was living on the streets of central Edmonton.

“I’ve been great, very busy. I’m working with some of the biggest companies in the world, including one of the biggest shoe companies in the world and we will be announcing that later this coming year. It's been a huge response to the Marvel book and, yeah, its been go, go, go, busy, busy, busy,” added Charles.
All it proves is, given the chance, DC will hire artists as poor as Marvel's been (and apparently also a shoemaking company), competing as they clearly are with Liefeld to see who's the sloppier artist. Some might've thought that, based on their regrettable modern bias in favor of Batman, they might keep the art integrity in good condition. But if this is whom they're hiring, no matter how questionable his art skills, it's a sign even that much is getting lost in the shuffle of social justice propaganda and political correctness.

About me

  • I'm Avi Green
  • From Jerusalem, Israel
  • I was born in Pennsylvania in 1974, and moved to Israel in 1983. I also enjoyed reading a lot of comics when I was young, the first being Fantastic Four. I maintain a strong belief in the public's right to knowledge and accuracy in facts. I like to think of myself as a conservative-style version of Clark Kent. I don't expect to be perfect at the job, but I do my best.
