For me, it's 10. I believe giving him a 10 is still less but I guess to each of their own.

7/10. Solid stuff, feel like I’m not familiar enough with his work to rank him really high. Looking through it’s pretty good but some of it’s not my cup of tea.

10.

Dave Gibbons is one of the modern greats. his work was very much in the tradition of Wally Wood and he kept that classic style relevant during the 80s and 90s.

Hmm. Like a 6. I feel like he's getting extra credit for the status of the comics themselves as opposed to just his art.

9, he's awesome! Watchmen was a masterpiece partly because of his art as well.

Somewhere in between 6 and 7, depending on the project he is working on. Not really my cup of tea, but he definitely ain't bad. He has a stylistic approach that doesn't really attract my eye tbh.

A 6.5/10.
