    Reviews - Armageddon 2001 - #1

View this issue

This is what I'm talking about - mellotron12
This comic is the perfect balance of story and art. DC was not yet influenced by the big art style coming from Image, so equal importance is given to Archie Goodwin's story and Dan Jurgens' art. I consider Jurgens to be the best representative of DC's house style, although professionals will deny that DC has a house style. But is you want a good idea of what DC art looked like in the 1990s, look no further than Jurgens. This issue is a great example of how awesome DC was in the late 1980s and early 1990s.
I first Armageddon 2001 after the fact ... many years after the fact, like around 2001. And the story was still exciting and seemingly fresh.
This is great comic book storytelling within an Orwellian future. One of the great DC epic events.
I must also mention that Anthony Tollin colored this issue. Tollin is the best colorist from this era. One aspect of his style is the use of odd colors for the sky in order to depict mood. For example, if a panel is meant to be angry, then the sky may be red. If the panel is meant to be cool or reserved, the sky may be teal, purple, or sage. I love his work!
