John Romita Jr is one of the worst professional superhero artists in the biz. Only marginally better than Liefeld, a step below Jim Lee. And Jim Lee is bad

I like Jim Steranko's stuff a lot. There's a couple really great artists in The Best of Ray Bradbury: The Graphic Novel whose names escape me now. :/

Looks like someone has been reading in between the lines. Quick, grab Gill before he gets away. Pixel holocaust, PIXEL HOLOCAUST!!!


I just took a look at some of the suggestions you guys threw out. From the whole 1 hour I was viewing his pieces, I think its safe to say that Milo Manara's style IS softcore porn. But that's just an hours worth of viewing. He could actually have some morally decent stuff too.( not that his stuff wasn't bad). Liberatore's stuff was pretty kool beans as well. His character is kinda' 80's robot wierd, though. Romita JR's stuff was ok, but it did seem sorta' generic.

@Helm: I guess it's because I'm not a professional comic artist, but after seeing some of Jim Lee's stuff, it didn't look so bad to me. Sure it still has that old tacky comic book feel, but it's still fits the style to me. Understandably, some of the main heroes tend to have the same facial expressions, but I'm no purist, and my opinion wouldn't really matter.
my back hurts...

Leinil francis Yu (http://leinilyu.deviantart.com/) pencilled some Wolverine comics i liked alot, theres one panel from "not dead yet" on the bottom of this page : http://www.typingmonkeys.com/wolverine_024.html
Modern artists are told that they must create something totally original-or risk being called "derivative".They've been indoctrinated with the concept that bad=good.The effect is always the same: Meaningless primitivism

Quinto Hoover mostly small press stuff, Richard Kane Ferguson (dunno if he did any comics though)...Both of have done art for assorted CCGs for a fact...Humberto Ramos is another one of my faves but his stuff is very stylized...

GO! FULL POWER LEVEL UP! (remember, save before birthday, and if the stat increases aren't good, reload and level up again! THIS IS HOW I GOT THIS MASSIVE PEN... uh

I find this image



so extremely hilarious.

Also, B.O.B.: Jim Lee cannot draw a pose that isn't wooden and completely gravity-less and fake. All his women have scholiosis, all his men two torsos. That's enough for me to call him bad.
