Loved his Swamp Thing.

Enjoyed Ultimates and Red Son.

Everything else, I am fairlyu indifferent to. Sometimes he has flashes of brilliance.

Ultimates: Good (what I've read)
Red Son: Fantastic (one of the better takes on Superman I've ever seen)
Chosen: Good (what I've read - I'm still waiting for that fucking trade they keep promising)
Unfunnies: way too crass for my tastes
411: FAN-FUCKING-TASTIC

411 was Jemas' project about nonviolent responses to world conflicts. It was really really really really good. You can probably find the 2 issues that saw print (there were supposed to be 3, but an unnamed writer wrote a story that was too controversial for print, and the low sales (10,000ish) killed the book before #3 (which was unfinished because of that writer anyway) ever saw print.

And nope, Chosen TPB isn't out yet. I keep checking.

Indifferent, really. I loved Swamp Thing but I believe that arc was plotted by Morrison. The Ultimates is OK...

Ultimates and Ultimate X-Men.

His Spiderman and Wolverine runs weren't too bad. Definitely not a writer I'd go out of my way to read all of his work (like Morrison :D)

I don't really like him and pre-established things but in cases like Ultimates and Superman: Red Son, I really enjoy his stuff.

I might have one foot in that boat. The first 12 issues were wonderful, but Ultimates 2 hasn't impressed me at all, except the Ultimates and the European Supersoldiers taking down Thor.
