That is a great way to phrase it.
John Byrne and Frank Miller did that, too imo.

Erik Larsen too, depending on the period.

John Romita Jr. as well. And that Marvel guywho draws everyone with big hands and feet.

I'm surprised Bagley didn't. He definitely has a style, and he puts out a ton of work.

Greg Land is the artist I hate the most. I'm not sure if he's objectively the worst, but something about his art just especially pisses me off.

It's the confused boner you get caused by subconsciously recognizing the porn he's tracing.

I might be the only would who thinks this but the more Bachalo goes with his style the more I like it.

Afu Chan



This guy looks like he'd be great on small indie books.  This reminds me of Peter Bagge's "Hate".  I can see why fans of mainstream superhero might not like him as much, though.

There's a big difference between "stylized" art and "bad" art

^^^Yeah there is.
Never heard of Afu Chan, but based on that scan? I'm going to look him up.

I might be the only would who thinks this but the more Bachalo goes with his style the more I like it.
Bachalo is great
I like Bachalo.
Only problem i've ever had is following his narrative in sequences that are dark.
Lots of black leather in gloomy environments and his stuff just blurs in my eyes.

The guy can draw his ass off, though. Every character seems to have their own physique, which is great.
Check out this spidey. Powerful, while still giving off that slim acrobatic vibe, not an over muscled body like many artists just go with.

His Lizard reminds me of Romita's Mephisto.
