I think the first 39 issues are some of the best Bat-related issues ever. Dixon nailed what makes Nightwing cool right on the head. It really reads well from the first trade to the 4th (after the 4th, I got kinda bored with how things went).

Hal is...I dunno. There are a few brief moments when I have really liked him, but overall, I don't. Me, I prefer this guy:

John Stewart's my favorite, and I wish he were in the new Justice League of America comic, but I think they're going to go with Hal, and continue to play with the "I'm not ready to be back in the JLA" bit that Johns and Heinberg used in their JLA arc. :roll:

Not Johns. They learned during IC you can only stretch the man so far.

I wouldn't mind Wolfman. I think he would be the best bet as far as saying "Sorry" to the fans over the last few years of pure crap they put out

I'd give Wolfman a try. I really would. I never read his Teen Titans.

I remember reading that he doesn't like Kyle Rayner, and doesn't paint him. I read Kingdom Come and realized that he doesn't like Kyle Rayner because he's too young for him to paint.


That wouldn't stop him. The man just draws people old looking. The man hires models to help him out on how certain poses. he needs to qui using older people. hell, when he goes to a convention I bet alot people who dress up would love it Ross took pictures of them to use for refrence

His TT is very good

Though I doubt he would be as good as his old stuff, I doubt he has fallen as far as Claremont in terms in quality work

Batman looked chunky. Ross can't draw fit people.

Alex Ross wouldn't know youth and vibrance if it jumped up and bit him in the ass!

Look at his paintings. They're very drab, even when they're supposed to be colourful.
SHABBA!

I've only rarely liked his work. It's a lot of hype, really.

I liked his cover to Superman: Forever, or whatever it was called. I liked Superman: Peace on Earth. And I liked his work with Lee on the Wizard cover.

I like Alex Ross' work. Justice has been great so far. I thoink he can paint young people just look at some of the paintings he did for Spider-Man 2. Maybe he's just a little out touch with today's youth. Which is a fair criticism.
