I actually hate Janson's inks over JR. I think JRJR needs a Terry Austin inking his stuff. 

Eh, different strokes and all of that. I owned a few JRJr/Janson pages for a time, and I adored them.

You've got that right. I can't believe anyone would put George Tuska or Don Heck in their Top 10 list :baiting:

I just love those early Iron Mans.

Agreed.  For the most part, Janson's inks over Romita Jr were brutal and he really didn't add anything to John's art with a few notable exceptions such as Punisher War Zone, where Klaus captured the scratchy, dirty world of organized crime quite well, and with the Hearts of Darkness one-shot.  Since then, Klaus' inks over John didn't embellish so much as merely trace over John's pencils.
