The Batman 75th looks awesome but it would have been the icing on the cake if they included Ben's suit

I hate the hosts for things like this. They're always annoying. But, the Batman 75th show looks pretty sweet. I wish I could see it.

@whysoserious

I'm thinking about it long and hard. I'll get back with you when it pops up.

Joll- Fourth one reminds me of Superman II. Remember the alley scene?
Jollem - 6/24/2014, 11:19 AM
@cipher - yeah. i can see that

I still [frick]ing hate the new 52 suit.

Y'know.. I like JRJR. I mean, I think his art was much better way back, and I know that not everybody likes his stuff, but I like it (for the most part). I totally get why some don't like his style, though, so.. it's cool.

I think his best stuff was when he did X-Men way back in the 80s and early 90s. And I have a soft spot for his stuff on Spider-Man with Stracynski (pretty sure I spelled that wrong).

Punisher War Zone. Man Without Fear. I almost forgot to mention those two. I liked his work there, too.

The overestimated and mediocre stories of Geoff Johns.

i think jrjr's best stuff is his best stuff no matter what the years are. i've heard people say jim lee's best stuff was from the 90's as well. nah
cipher - 6/24/2014, 11:48 AM
I actually think Jim's best stuff was Hush.

i agree that Jim Lee stuff was the best.

Who's the guy wearing the New 52 Superman suit? It sure doesn't look like Superman. It looks like some refugee from Kick Ass in a Superman suit?

Really don't like the way he draws faces, although that wasn't true back in the day. I also think that the armoring aspect of the new costume is way overemphasized.

Spider-man will always be his best work for me

JRJR is arguably worse than Liefeld. Proof that you can do anything you want, even if you have no talent whatsoever.
yaktheripper - 6/24/2014, 3:23 PM
I just don't get the dislike of Geoff Johns or Romita Jr...not dick riding but those 2 are proven talents. Maybe you don't like Romita's style but he's a master at sequential art. Even Liefeld...okay, so he's not many people's cup of tea but there is OBVIOUS talent in his work. I mean...how many of you guys and girls could draw anything ORIGINAL and come anywhere close to Liefeld's level much less Romita Jr.
GodzillaKart - 6/24/2014, 3:31 PM
I love JRJR's work, but understand why so many people don't. He draws in an unusual, stylized manner unlike anyone else.
staypuffed - 6/24/2014, 4:31 PM
Damn, the exhibit looks so good! Wish I could go.

You don't have to be an artist to criticise artwork. You have to understand art to make serious judgement on it. How much drawing skill you have is completely irrelevant.
Jollem - 6/24/2014, 5:07 PM
creating it helps. there's a language that we artists understand, and jrjr speaks it beautifully
BuckyCap - 6/25/2014, 1:02 PM
"there's a language that we artists understand, and jrjr speaks it beautifully"

Speaks it beautifully? He has proportion problems, shading problems, anatomy problems, dimension problems, consistent viewing angle problems, depth problems, consistency problems, problems drawing straight lines, problems positioning the subject, problems creating a consistent plane, problems depicting motion, problems depicting emotion on character's faces, problems depicting a consistent light source and many more.

He suffers from many of the same shortcomings as Liefeld. It is simply just bad artwork. Trying to pass it off as anything else is an insult to real artists. John Romita Jr. is a [frick]ing hack who gets work because of who his daddy was.
