Reasons Why John Cassaday Is Better Than Greg Land

John Cassaday cover for Giant Size Astonishing X-Men#1:

Greg Land cover for Uncanny X-Men#500:

Reason#1: Cassaday's characters actually look like they're working together.

Reason#2: None of Cassaday's female characters' facial expressions look like they've been pleasuring themselves.

Reason#3: Cassaday's Emma Frost and Sue Richards actually look like two different women.

Reason#4: None of Cassaday's characters look like they're dancing.

Yup. I can honestly say that none of Cassady's female (or male) characters have porn face. The ones who are flying actually CAN fly, or are at least leaping or being thrown, as opposed to just hovering in the air magically.

The women have different faces. The MEN have different faces. They have feet, and their anatomy is actually possible.

Cassaday didn't have to copy Land's version of a character to put into his cover, either. :)

And as far as I know, the only person Cassaday may have photoreferenced is himself. He does bear a strong resemblance to The Drummer from PLANETARY.

Another thought. Cassady's X-Men actually look as though they are DOING something. They've spotted the villains and are actively running foreward to kick their collective behinds. Land's X-Men are just posing. They aren't engaged in doing...anything.

I have to admit that Cassaday has underwhelmed me as X-Men artist, but he's still light years ahead of the execrable Greg Land.

Oh, one more:

Cassady's teenage girls look like teenage girls. Every time I see Land's Pixie I wonder if her mother knows how much make-up she wears at school.

Land's art was the biggest disappoint to me on FCBD. I really enjoyed the copy of X-Men that was available, but every other page I was strongly reminded of where Land gets his source material.
