    I think I like both of their work

    I enjoy both Ramos and Bachalo. I prefer the more... kinetic, impressionistic, surrealist etc stuff to the Lee/Benes/Turner stuff. JG Jones sometimes does a hyper-reality thing that I greatly enjoy too.

    Never really hated either of them, but sometimes their style (yes, their style) clashes with the story. Ramos on spider-man is fantastic, however Bachalo on x-men was a little off for me.

    I always look at Ramos and think "it's like Bachalo but good." He's still cartoony but not as irritatingly messy as Bachalo

    I just googled 'Fred Perry' and got an eyeful of furry porn. :?

    Same here. I had no idea he drew that stuff/.

    I don't know if it's the same Fred Perry (How many Perrys named their kids Fred?), but TBH my eyes were watering too much to go find out.

    Cheerfully withdrawn. But what Gank said; with the addition that few other comic artist styles grate so hard on my own personal eyeballs.

    I'm not a huge Superman fan, but this is still one of my favorite covers ever:

    I read JLA/Avengers recently

    It was pretty good. I mean Superman read like a massive dick even after we knew he was getting mind fucked

    but still, pretty good.

    Hawkeye is totally better than Green Arrow as well, so it gets a mark for that.

    Why stop at the hammer and shield? Supes needs some adamantium claws, cyclops visor (to control his completly controlled heat vision) and position upon a Todd McFarlane spider-web.

    Superman has all the powers anyway

    he doesn't need any more powers

    he can already do pretty much anything

    Scott and I are doing a variant cover for ECCC this upcoming weekend, if you're going to be at the con, stop by and say hello. Pick up an exclusive cover version of Intrepids #1 if you could be bothered :)

    So here's a bunch of the 'I Am Captain America' Variant Covers, including stuff by Marko Djurdjevic and Alex Maleev. Personally I think the best one is Skottie Youngs:

    I think this cover had been mentioned by someone else previous to now, but I couldn't find an image of it at the time.

    I like that the doctor's mask is kinda making an 'A' over her surgical hairnet. That's quite clever.

    And the glint of light off her glasses makes a star. I like this one the best. Nice, subtle, symbolism.

    It's pretty funny that Green Arrow is supposed to be best friends with Hal in that series but several covers feature him trying to either murder hal or ruin his life.
