I prefer Ottley. I've always thought JRJR's art was just ok, I like his father's art much more.

Meh, both are generic. I don't know why people get the hype for Romita Jr. He is too sketchy. Neither Ottley excites me from his Invincibles or Spider-Man.

@vishop_: I think Ottley's style really fits Spider-Man and Invincible though.

I prefer Sr's over Jr's. Jr's art is more distinct but its also hit or miss for me. Gotta go with Ottley.

His Spider-Man work is actually some of my least favorite of his.

Romita was the weakest link during Claremont's UXM.

Ottley on a more consistent basis. JRJR is awesome in some stories, his Spider-Man and Enemy of the State stuff are my favorites, but he’s done pretty disappointing books before, especially his more modern stuff over the last 10 years just doesn’t look right most of the time.

Romita Jr. One of my all time favorite artists.

A very distinct style who always creates a very classic look to the characters he is drawing. His people may look blocky but it has charm in it.

I don't think there was a weak link during Claremont's run, I like all of the artists during his tenure. also Romita Jr came back in the 90s and was the artist on UXM when Lobdell was writing. and I love his work on X-Men during that time.

Me too.

I really disliked how he drew the faces in Kick-Ass, the proportions are really off. Hit-Girl is very badly drawn.

@jb681131: I haven't gotten into Kick-Ass yet but his style seems to fit that series.

JRJR only draws a couple characters well, in my opnion. I like Ottley’s art better, so I vote him

@stormdriven: I think Ottley will be recognised as a great once he's JRJR's age.

Personally, JRJR is probably my favorite artist, I know he isn't for everyone but I just LOVE his style.

Ottley. His work with Invincible has became a staple of art in commercial comics that are not mainstream.

Neither are particularly impressive, but Ottley's work is still better. Romita Jr. has some pretty crap art there, especially that image of Thor and Iron Man flying together... it's just not good at all.
