i like most of them for different reasons
though i've never been a fan of Sienkiewicz's work, i find it dated and his storytelling almost always trips over his design

i think the only one who seems (to me) not to have peaked and started going down hill yet is Mike Oeming, but i wouldn't be too surprised if Morse proves me wrong


EDIT
but i should plead ignorant over the work Jae Lee has done over the last 2/3 years

... Mike Allred, I guess.
Allred and Oeming rate similarly, for similar reasons. I like their styles, relatively simple in nature, and as far as Allred is concerned, usually inked to be very clean.

Jae Lee's also right up my alley, but in a completely different catagory.
His issues of Batman: Jekyll & Hyde ripped my nuts off, and used them to garnish a salad.

Yeah, they were great too, as was Sean Phillips half of that series. I'd really like "His issues of Batman: Jekyll & Hyde ripped my nuts off, and used them to garnish a salad." to be used as a quote on the back of the Trade though.

Allred's Solo was fantastic too. Loved the entire issue.

Just curious :)

Scott Morse doesn't work for me, visually. not what I am looking for.

Jae Lee has a wondrful distinctive style that works very well.

Bill is the man, and I have many of his works over the years.

Oeming has the big, blocky look to his work that makes his male characters very visually appealing (to me)

and

Allred's sometimes retro-y cartoonishness always gets high points by me.

As to which do I like 'best', I would probably say Lee or Oeming.

Really? Have you ever read Sienkiewicz's Elektra:Assassin. He deserves to be on any list just for sheer balls. In fact I think him and Mack are very much on the same page stylistically.

Oeming is like a fin wine. You have to let it sit for a while before you can truly appreciate it. I really didn't start to like him until I had read Powers for a while.

Scott Morse I respect, but not really my taste in art.

Jae Lee and Maleev both fall into the category of making beautiful work, but coming off too static.

If Ihad to pick one, it would be Mr. Allred, though. Everything he has done has piqued my interest.

And I'm not saying this to suck up because Mike posts here and he's the only one who sees it, but probably Oeming. I just dig his style and would love to see it on more mainstream stuff rather than just Powers.

I don't read anything by Morse (He does Plastic Man, right?). Jae is good, but the last few projects haven't done much for me, especially his Hulk stuff. Bill S does great, great work and is a legend, but his work just isn't for me. And Mike Allred never did much for me when I read his X-Force/X-Statix.

But then after seeing that watercolor piece by Oeming, this is definitely a toughie, cause that piece was beaaaautiful.

Gah. That's a tough list!

I think I'm going to have to say that Bill Sienkiewicz barely edges out the bunch, only because I've been a fan longer. If I had been more of a Johnny-come-lately to Bill S, I'd probably say Oeming.

Jae Lee, for me. Followed by Mike Allred and Oeming, thumb wrestling to gain second place. Sienkiewicz has been off of my radar since I was a wee lad. But I dug him back in the day.

Sadly, I don't know who Scott Morse is.

I like everyone here. If I have to rank people for my taste here's how it would go

Jae Lee #1 He visually WOWs you every time.
Scott Morse #2 You can get lost watching him work. Creative Creative Creative.
Oeming #3 The best storyteller of the bunch, and is only heading upward.
Allred #4 A throwback and an aquired taste. I like his ambition, especially with his Golden Plates series. Only he could have pulled off X-Force/X-Statix successfully.
Bill S. #5 I didn't grow up with him like some here, and I like him a lot but I just like him least in this group.

Oeming probably has the most versatility, as his art can fit many different tones storywise. If this was for a new superhero ongoing, i'd choose him.

Allred is the most fun, but i'd rather see him back on Madman Atomic Comics where his full jiveness can be appreciated (but man, that Allred Solo issue was probably my favorite comic of 2005)

However, you asked which artist we like most, & for pure arts sake, Morse wins hands down. Watching him do live paintings is tons of fun & he's the only comic artist that i have an original framed on my wall.

I still love Bill's(and I use his first name because it's such a pain to type, not out of some sort of familiarity) work.

Having said that I wouldn't buy any book just for one of those artists. Maybe for Cassaday, but that would be it.

that would be Allred. anything he touches becomes completely different & unique. Although i have had to pass on some of his 'i have to get this out of my system even though no one else cares' books like his multi-media Red Rocket 7 & book of mormon adaptation Golden Plates.

Morse would hold that spot, except for the fact that most of his books are original graphic novels & i can't always afford them.

Of the list -- Bill Sienkiewicz, though I don't buy everything he does. I like his work, but have heard his storytelling can be hard for writers to work with, requiring some re-writing once the pages are in (I'd say it's worth the extra work, though). Oeming is probably the clearest storyteller on the list.

Why? Who do you like?
