It definitely does remind me of 80s-type "revisionist" superheroes, but I think it works a lot better than many examples of that. (Including--potential heresy alert!--The Golden LNH-Men, which I felt was kinda underwhelming.) I think that's because it's not aiming for "realism" but for this surreal feeling which reminds me a lot of Bronze Age comics. A lot of Arthur's work reminds me of Steve Gerber--that kind of heightened alienation and weirdness.

Also, the coloring fits the mood really well.
