Respect to the man for his work with Frank Miller and shit but I find the line work when inked is a lot more blocky and people look more square than anything. I also don't think Dean White's coloring meshes very well with his art either. Something about the combo of JRJR & Janson + White doesn't sit right with me.
Also, I'm starting to lean more towards Sakie's theory that this shit is happening all in Cap's head. Or it could be that time is out of joint. 11 years passed and Ian doesn't look like he's aged much but Jet Black is a teenage girl now. Shit is weird.
Janson, in the past, has done an incredible job on JRJR's art. But not lately. Their last good collaboration was New Ways to Die.
JRJR is a strong storyteller, who can create some dynamic poses and equally dynamic sequences. But he has always needed a great inker to clean up his pencils. Tom Palmer, for example, has done a phenomenal job on JRJR's Kick-Ass work.
I wish that Palmer, possibly the best inker of all time, would work exclusively with JRJR.
