(Probably the first mixed reaction artist on this list)

Today's rate the Comic Book Artist segment features Frank Quitely. I'd give a him a 4 myself. I'd admit his faces are not the best at times (really oddly shaped or wrinkly at times). However, I can barely name any other artist who puts a terrific sense of motion, body language and expression into his pages than Quitely. His paneling is also one of the best in the industry. His layouts displaying a cinematic feel few can match.

His style is one where you either like or hate. Personally I like it, I don't think it fits all characters but when it does, it can look amazing. A 4 from me.

Quitely is a weird case. Sometimes I find his work hard to look at. Sometimes I find them amazing. Depending on the work in question, he can range anywhere between 2 to 5. Some of his New X-Men stuff give me a nausea, and then there's works like Jupiter's Legacy and Multiversity - Pax Americana which have some scenes that are absolutely breathtaking.

btw the New X-Men cover is actually from Ethan Van Sciver.

His approach as a comic book artist has flourished and also failed quite a no of times. I an not a fan of his art honestly as an x-fan.

I personally disilke his style very much, I just find his faces and overall human body shape weird-looking.

2. he's average, and sometimes his work is just bad.

he's basically the Rob Liefeld of the 00s.

In this one Emma Frost looks like an alien humanoid.

Quitely's artwork is truly great in terms of dynamics, details and panel work, but his human faces look odd most of the times and almost everyone is incredibly skinny for a weird reason. However, I don't understand why people hate on him that much as even when he is bad he is still far superior to half of the artists out there. A solid 4 from me.

He's got a strong personal style, with these huge jaws, but he's rather poor on backgrounds. Still, I didn't saw anything drawn by him that wasn't good or even impressive. 4/5.

3, if it weren't for the faces it would have easily been a 4 from me.
