Today's rate the comic book artist segment features Ryan Ottley. Also known as "the man who made me love superheroes and super villains violently mutilating the crap out of each other" for me. He is best known as the long running artist for Image Comics comic book called Invincible replacing the original artist Cory Walker and drawing 100 + issues of the title. It features the titular character who becomes a superhero due to his alien heritage from his father. He is then forced to confront his own heritage and the problems it raised on Earth upon learning further of his father's culture. The series really comes into it's own after Ottley joined the creative crew, offering some great and gory fights.

As of recent years, his biggest mainstream splash has been being the main artist for Nick Spencer's The Amazing Spider-Man run which has been ongoing since 2018

7.5! Really good, I thought his art at the beginning of Invincible was just ok but as I read on I can see that he improved more and more.

Suggestion: Steve McNiven.

I give him a 7. I like his work on Invincible, but I like like his quality isn't as high across the board.

Ottley is a great artist. His pages and covers have a very good dynamic which works incredibly well on books which have a lot of action and gore. His cartoony style mixed with the brutality of his work looks always amazing. However, his art is nothing that special, so he's like a 7/10 for me.

I have only read his ASM work (I have yet to read Invincible) and from what I've read: it's a 7-8, it goes back and forth like that.

I think my main grip is that the outlines of some faces look a bit squared.

He seemed fine from what I've seen of Invincible, but his Amazing Spider-man has been trash. It's so stilted and feels unfinished, like he didn't have enough time while trading back and forth issues with the other artist.
