This week iFanboy takes a look at one of the more contentious issues in modern comics: phototracing.
The issue of phototracing in comics has become a hot button issue in comic books in recent years.
Does having artists draw (or possibly trace) from other works of art (including comics) hurt the comic book industry? Does it not matter? Is it all art? And where does photo referencing end and phototracing begin? These are just some of the questions that modern comic book readers have to answer for themselves and that the iFanboys tackle this week in one of their rare "issue" episodes.
One thing's for sure - this is a debate with a lot of complex questions and no easy answers.
Just as society changed in the 1960s, so too did comic book art as more traditional, cartoony styles gave way to Neal Adams and a more photorealistic style of comic book art. That style of art continues to be popular to this day.
What is phototracing, what have been some of the most egregious examples of phototracing, and how does seeing popular actors on the pages of a comic book effect the reader? All these questions and more are examined.
The examination on the effect of phototracing on the comic book reader continues and the iFanboys each try to decide where their line in the sand on phototracing is. There are no easy answers this time.
