Both suck (shrug)

100% agree, that Steranko cover had someone come behind him and add stuff. Hulk's right arm is coming out of his chest muscle; you can see clearly that his shoulder is extending past that wall

There are no "good" versions of Humberto Ramos art, only horrible.

I actually enjoy his rendition of the black costume Spider-man.  His style airs a sense of dark creepiness to Spider-man.  I am at work but if you can't find any examples, I will post a commission on a blank cover that I have that will show you what I mean.

Gloating over a suspension? Isn't that why Umpire Calling Strikes thread was locked? Is it ok now?

The 1990's were a scary time in the history of comics! lol

Why is the Punisher frolicking with a beach ball?

What are those Weird Dinosaurs in bikinis?

I don't remember toothbrushes costing $20 then!

Why Frank, Why?! lol

Worst- I know this is beating a dead horse but it makes me laugh every time I see it. 

Best- I love Kirby but Alex Ross is a master.

I love Alex Ross too... but this particular piece makes my brain itch.  The shield is TOO SMALL.  Like JUST too small enough to be really really annoying.

It may be a little on the small side - but got damn is it gorgeous.

Isn't it the job of editors to prevent abominations such as the Rob Liefeld cover above? I still can't understand how Liefeld ever got any work in the comic industry.

Not that I like Alex Ross' art either but Liefeld is a cut below just about anybody.

Never understood Liefeld's popularity as an artist!

I know it was the style of the 90s but his peers @ the time were/are much better: Silvestri, Mcfarlane, Lee, etc !

Basically why I got bored with Liefeld's work around X-Force 1, but stayed interested in other creators such as Arthur Adams throughout that decade.  Substance as well as just style.

I'm a Kirby Cap fan but was also wowed by Steranko's brief take on the character.  I'll insert another selection though as my all-time worst rendition that I remember even now.  Every page of Robbins' run was excruciating to turn to and couldn't be saved even if Hemingway was writing the dialogue.

I’d considered posting something from Robbins’ Cap run as well.

Excruciating is an accurate description, but between those issues and his Invaders run it’s difficult to choose one standout image that’s much more craptastic than the many others.
 

However, the impasse does lead me into posting this classic panel  from the Cap run.

It’s still Steve Rogers, after all..

Batman looks like he's wearing a black raincoat in panels 3 and 4.

Never noticed that.

Makes it look more like the Victorian costume design from Gotham by Gaslight.
