As requested by @thor_parker82, today's Rate The Comic Book Artist features John Romita Jr., son of the legendary Amazing Spider-Man artist John Romita. A staple in the modern comic book industry, Romita Jr. has had an extensive career within Marvel, drawing fan favorite storylines like Wolverine: Enemy Of The State and World War Hulk while having an extensive Spider-Man career as well. His style ... is not everyone's taste but I do find charm in his art style. There's a sense of dynamic within his work that most other artists don't have.

A 7 I suppose. While his art is not bad, it can vary a lot in quality imo. I think some of his best work I've seen was Spider-Man related, IIRC the very first 616 Spider-Man book I read was drawn by him but his work on other characters hasn't been that good.

He is bizarre to me.

I don't like his art, but he drew a lot of issues I consider to be great.

7. Don't do Ed Benes. Isn't he like more a lewd/ pin-up artist?

Benes' art is actually rather nice. Sure he tends to draw women doing that thing with the hip but other than that, he is solid.

He is just afraid the site won't be able to handle all that love people here have for his art and might crash :P

@magian: It's true that people used to fall for his art like a decade ago. I think he is still stuck in there during that time lol.

8. His modern art can be stiff and blocky and the kids are bobbleheads, but I like the grit.

He's one of my favorites.

6 for me. His art can go from weirdly bad to being pretty good for the story being told. I loved his stuff in EoS and Spider-Man. His Cap run was eh, and some of his panels involving a bunch of characters make them look like 5 year olds.

A 3. I can't stand his art, and his work on Superman is atrocious. Didn't like his Hulk stuff either. Only giving him a 3 because at his very best, he's average.

8 he is one of a few artist that draws characters with actual weight to their costumes. Characters like Batman who wear armor and tons of accessories, you have a sense that they are wearing something substantial. Most other artist tend to make everything as if it's form fitting when it actually wouldn't be. Armors that fit like tshirts and other nonsense.

I don't like the design, it looks amateurish and something i could find on a users deviant art account. The only one that impressed me initially was the first photo with batman.

@harrynorine:

What about his style is amateur? His perspective and proportions are legit and his perspective is as well. Everything else is style, I don't understand your criticism.
