I love his art. Is there any comic drawn by him that is not good? I can't recall any. His comics are always with the top writers.

When it's Alex Ross, you need not look at the name.

if there was one criticism i had, its that because he models all his pictures on real life models, its very hard to do good combat, it can look posed...

but it is not ideal for an ongoing serial I love his early stuff right back to what he did in warrior, before he started painting but someone like Totleben handles action better.Originally posted by pr1983

Nothing new...Just wanted to say I'm mesmorized by his art also. My first run-ins with Ross art were Kingdom Come and The Earth X/Universe X/Paradise X series Marvel did. Since then I've read a bunch of his other stuff.

Usually they are top notch writers...but it wouldn't be half as good withour Ross.

The best thing is to watch old comics, and then see his remakes of them. Marvels brought tears into my eyes. (Did you notice who the paperboy in the end was? wink )

And George Perez learned under Rich Buckler; you look closely at Ross and you will see Buckler in there, especially Marvels.

i like alex ross. all his stuff is good but i dont like the way how he does spidermans eyes on his mask. it looks weird to me. but everything else espically superman is awesome.

He's not as fluid with action scenes, true - some artists who have the gift of drawing almost exact human form realistically, do not distort for action like Jack Kirby. Al Williamson is another one - all his SF&Fanatsy collaborations with Archie Goodwin, characters looked like they stepped out of photographs. Action looked the same way though, like frozen photgraphs. Jackson Guice, similar to Williamson, has the same style, though had a habit of distorting legs for some reason. Artists who might have the best balance of "real-looking" characters and action, I would say - Neal Adams, George Perez, and currently Bryan Hitch.

Alex Ross is unbeatable when it comes to "What would this hero look like in real life?" But IMO, he lacks the energy/vitality/dynamism of someone like Jack Kirby, whom, as I mentioned in another thread, actually had a lousy knowledge of anatomy, but his drawings virtually snap-crackle-popped with power.
