Today's rate the Comic Book Artist segment features Jim Cheung, a fan favorite artist. I'd personally give him a 4. Cinematic visuals but his art tends to suffer from his characters having the same faces at times.

Yeah, I'd give him a 4 as well, those artworks are pretty good.

Aesthetically pleasing, good sense of framing and great at action - only thing that detracts from him is how slow he is. Beautiful art is great, but when it pushes back the publication of an on-going or Cheung needs to be replaced within 3 issues then there isn't much point, is there? That's the only thing that keeps me from rating him as top tier.

Beyond that, he's close to a 5. The contrast between his mid-90s work and now is stark.

@morpheus_: How different does it look? Do you happen to have any pics?

His art does look great. So based on the little I have seen from him,I'll give him a 4. I'd have probably rated him higher if I had read something he has drawn but I just don't know very well how his art looks besides cover art.

His faces tend to be somewhat similar sometimes, but his art is great nevertheless. At least a 4.

@magian: It was a lot more generic, even though his style in drawing faces has not changed significantly. Today, you can't mistake his art for anyone else's - but if I post this, it's not quite as distinctive.

@magian: his style in drawing faces

I think that's his most distinctive feature. You see the face and you instantly know it's his.

Hmm... it does seem to have changed a lot. Even though this picture isn't exactly that helpful, his current art seems more crisp and vibrant.

He has an incredibly eye pleasing style but his faces tend to be idential like...uhm, 90% of the time. But beyond this, his artwork is great and looks very pleasing.

He is aesthetically great but he lacks versatility especially when he draws faces. They look similar to imo.

About a 3. It's good, but not very distinguished. Like if my mind thought "comic book art", it would probably be this.

To me, all the faces look way too similar.

@life_without_progress:

You should do one of these for Lee Bermejo (worked on Batman: Noel). His stuff is awesome and IMO criminally overlooked.
