The Web - Issue 2 by Artgerm The Web - Issue 2 by Artgerm
THE WEB #2
Written by Angela Robinson; co-feature written by John Rozum
Art Roger Robinson & Hilary Barta; co-feature art by Tom Derenick & Bill Sienkiewicz
Cover by Stanley “Artgerm” Lau

The Web finds himself in over his head as he plunges deeper into the criminal underworld looking for the elusive villain Dr. Archer. With his calls of duty piling up, The Web gets caught in a terrible death trap and in his civilian I.D., he’s found himself rolling with made men. Has the new hero overplayed his hand already?

Plus, the Hangman begins tightening the noose on San Francisco’s organized crime, but he finds resistance in the form of the Ugly Man!

I have to agree, the chips are too distracting. Maybe you should have painted over them some more, just to match the texture of the rest. Apart from that, beautiful work! I really like the colors you've been using lately.

Artgerm is more and more skillfull and genius everytime, but in this one in particular the difference between the 2D (people and bg) and the pile of chips, which is clearly 3D, is very noticeable. It'd be great if everything in the image was painted, I don't like the misture. Anyway the image is excellent, as always.

Beautifully mastered `Artgerm. The color scheme is spot on & the lighting intense. Very focused on the main character "The Web" & shows pizzaz. The raw power of mischief displayed in "The Web's" facial expression is absolutelly stunning. You can tell that even out numbered he holds the playing cards in style & favor. Well thought out & pieced together. Love to see more of your work. -Nixirhei
