i was the biggest byrne fan on earth when he did xmen with terry austin

let's add frank miller to the comversation to liven it up even more!

I liked Miller/Jansen a bit more than Byrne/Austin.  I was always surprised at the diff when I saw Miller's work without him.

Byrne is the greatest writer/artist of the era. But since we are just talking about art: Perez

Can Byrne draw different faces?  He can if there's a huge difference in the face like in the 'various races' character sheet.  When there's some huge difference he can exploit to make the faces different.  The problem arises when he draws just a standard hero or character-then he defaults to the 'reed richard' and ''sue storm' face, just switching wigs or adding glasses etc.

The discussion about Byrne and faces is interesting. Jim Lee can be accused of the same thing and he gets near universal praise for his work. In fact, you can probably go through the work of many comic artists and find the same faces thing.

To me that doesn't diminish Byrne's work. For some it does. Geeks are passionate about their geekery ;) but there's no right or wrong answer.

If you read thru the thread I stated the same thing.  Most comic artists do the same face thing but with Byrne he takes it to a whole new level in my opinion.

If you tell me your opinion is that Rob Liefeld draws anatomy well, I’m going to tell you your ‘opinion’ is just flat out wrong.

I don’t know, while not feet, I’m sure I could understand other respectable critics saying he draws certain other anatomy well...

And I think I’ll just leave it at that.

In fact, as a Byrne voter, I do agree that his rendering of female faces is limited, and based on evidence, this is more than just opinion.

His heads are also too big for their bodies. That's always been a peeve of mine even if I like Byrne's work.

Since opinions apparently cannot be wrong I say Perez isn't fit to sharpen Byrne's pencil.

I think we can all agree that no one draws John Byrne better or as frequently as John Byrne.

Really?  I would easily take Miller over Byrne as the greatest writer/artist of that era.  By far.

Was this judgement made before or after you became blind as a bat?

As a kid, I always snatched up anything Byrne did. Just loved every panel he did.  As for Perez, I always found him kinda 'Meh'.  To me, his work was only interesting if it was embellished by a good inker

Had Miller had never made Ronin I would agree with you.
