Checked it because it's a Juggernaut-centered story. Bunch of people gunning for the Gem of Cyttorak including its One True Owner, Cain Marko.

The art is... stunningly bad. Liefeld bad. Maybe worse.

Damn. That's disappointing, but I like the premise

Meh.  I wouldn't call it the worst ever.

Really? You guys think this is average for a professional comic book artist? There is no sense of layout, storytelling or even basic anatomy. Every character's arms are thrown so akimbo I almost think it's a print commercial for L-DOPA.

Going by the two pages linked I'd say it's average. You can see worse things regularly.

Poor quality? Definitely. But I dunno, doesn't seem as bad as Liefeld.

I would argue that Humberto Ramos is a waaaaaaaaaaaaaay worse artist than this guy. Humberto is
the kind of artist that offends me is allowed to work on any license from Marvel.

But at the same time, it gives me hope that my own shitty animu-art could be considered Marvel quality.

Then like the 90's X-Men cartoon, let's you and I, like Xavier and Magneto, monologue to one
another, longingly, lovingly, ROMANTICALLY.
