Who would you say in recent years were some of the worst comic book artists?

I personally despise Alan Davis and cannot stand looking at it.

I find myself on and off with some artists like David Lafuente and Ron Garney who has done good work recently but others not so great.

Rob Liefiled. His art is an abomination. And the worst part is, he acts like he is comic book's Messiah.

@wolverine08: knew he would be first lmao

anyways fofor me would be John Romita.

Not the worst,  but there's something about the way he draws heads that bugs me.

What the hell? Take away some of the details and it could be a children's drawing.

I don't know who the worst comic book artist is. I haven't read nearly enough comics to be qualified to judge that. But that Captain America is one god-awful piece.

Gotta disagree with Greg Land, MAJORLY. Guy does cover art well. Only problem is the mouth. Holy hell.

Alas, my vote is also for Rob Liefeld. I'm really hoping he never gets into the big two again. He has a cocky attitude. His art is horrendus. Just ugh.

Liefield shouldn't be an option for this 'contest'. He's so bad he makes everybody else look good.

I've read so many trades lately that I can't keep track of the artists. I've seen some pretty bad ones though. The faces in Batman: Incorporated come to mind.

Chris Bachalo; if there's an opposite of photo-referencing, he's guilty of it.

Greg Land on principle, but ultimately Rob Liefeld is the worst.

Not much beats the ones already named.

Although this guy makes some pretty horrible faces, he is called Neil Googe and did injustice a few issues ago.

I don't think Liefeld should not be included in this discussion. He is just so astonishingly bad it's not even a competition.

I did some re-search and when you google Rob Liefeld one of the options is "Rob Liefeld worst", while when you google Jim Lee the option "Jim Lee best" comes up.

Liefeld!!!!!

This website basically made my day. He just can't draw bodies, his hands are all thumbs, the hips are larger than the rest of the body and don't get me started on the calves.

@rideaspacecowboy: I actually think Bachalo can be a really good artist. His style did take me a bit getting used to, but his art style changes a bit depending on the context of the story. Like, I hated his stuff in X-Men vol 3 and WatXM. But his stuff like Steampunk, Shade, Death, or his recent work in Uncanny X-Men is pretty damn good.
