In this thread just post the worst art in comics ever.

I just thought it would be fun to see how artists screw over characters with horrendus art.

Ex: I don't have the scans but that art in Silver Surfer # 73-74 is just terrible.

http://cdn2.holytaco.com/wp-content/uploads/images/2010/11/liefeld_cap.jpg That should have been the cover of Giant-Size Man-Boob #1.

The truly frightening thing about that pic is that Liefield always took great pains to draw his characters using real life models and photographs, as he was known as a diligent student of human anatomy and a perfectionist when it came to portraying the human form on paper. So somewhere out there... there is somebody who really looks like that.

Whilce Portacio, he is so bad I missed Land on Uncanny X-Men.

When I was about 12, I read an issue of Wolverine and thought Liefeld's art was great. Then it gradually dawned on me that the porportions are really bad.

Having said that I always feel bad for having a go at his art. I have seen many online interviews with lots of artists and of them, Liefeld seems like such a genuinely down to earth nice guy. I think he encountered a lot of jealousy because he has made so much money from his work, but after watching interviews with him, it's hard not to like him, even if I'm not a fan of his art.

All of it is and always has been bad. Hideous and jagged, deformed and out of proportion faces. He is hands down the worst artist to ever have main stream appeal. If people like Portacio then you know they are lying and just fallowing the crowd if they say they don't like Liefeld... because he is just a worse version of Liefeld.

Decent Inker though.

I honestly liked his work back when i started reading x-men. he is for me one of the best if not the best drawer or colossus, iceman and several others. if you don't like him, that's fair enough i suppose.

Another is Rob Teranishi. I don't know about "worst", but it was quite disappointing when he came aboard NYX.

He might not be to everyone's taste, but he is a good, interesting artist on certain projects. Just becasue he doesn't draw like Perez, Jimenez or Hitch doesn't make him bad.

Aha- the Secret Defenders art was Tom Grindberg. Not Grummet as I was remembering, but obviously something close to that had stayed in my memory as an artist to avoid.

Yeah, I saw Grindberg's name at the bottom. Either his pencils had been inked by Mike Mignola, or he was doing a Mignola imitation all by himself (result looks like a bizarre cross between Mignola & Rob Liefeld.)

That's the work of Bill Sienkiewicz, you idiots - one of the greatest and most imaginative artists to ever work in the comics field. Yes, his painted style is Gustav Klimt-like and impressionistic, but it's making a story point by making Fisk a boulder of a man who seems impervious to anything outsiders try to throw at him...except when it comes to his wife.

People here think all comics should be drawn like Phil Jimemez, Jim Lee etc. (and they are great), we're going to have a short discussion.

I don't care who drew Fisk that way, "you idiot". It is an absolutely terrible rendition of the character--among the worst I have personally seen. Looks like a toddler with Down Syndrome drew it, tbh.

I know what your getting at, but it makes him look more like one of those guys who ate so much they have to take a wall down to get him out of his bedroom - it makes him look like a pathetic figure.

The impressionistic style is fine for some things, and experimental art can sometimes work. But IMO this comic was absolutely the wrong place for it. Not all styles work in all settings.

People here think all comics should be drawn like Phil Jimemez, Jim Lee etc. (and they are great), we're going to have a short discussion.
We can understand its purpose and still think it looks bad/good/great/average. Art is funny like that. It's almost like it's...*gasp* subjective! eek!

No, we don't. The only thing limiting discussion is the distance between us and your seat on that high, high horse. Come off it dude.

Stylized? Sure. Impressive? Meps. Everyone looks lumpy and distorted.

That looks like someone going for something like Mike Magnolia style and not pulling it off.

Girl: "Excuse me, but I couldn't help noticing... is there something wrong with your neck?"
Neckverine: "Neck?"
Girl: "It's just... that neck makes your head look like an erect penis in tight underwear... wearing a mask."
Neckverine: "Penis?"
Neckverine: "Nobody makes fun of my neck!"

Surely some companies have a vetting process. Surely they've got to think. Nah that's a pile of bollocks.

PHUCKING SNIKT!!!

Q99
The heck is up with his arms? big grin That is just... weird.


On the flipside, the Wolverine Switchback looks solid to me. Like, a bit animal like on the face, but that's actually some skillful art.

Ulises Farinas... well, it's cartoony, an odd choice for Dredd, but isn't bad at being cartoonish.


That one 'SNIKT' panel, however... wth? That is some horrible art laughing

On the plus side, one is the Water hand, so it actually *could* be small.

On the minus side, his right hand has no such excuse smile

D'Israeli on the recent Judge Dredd story, He's good on something like Stickleback but not Dredd.
