Which do you prefer: Bob Layton's art on Iron Man or Sal Buscema's Hulk?

Layton Iron man. But I’m biased because I like Iron Man more.

I prefer Tony Daniel’s pages, but they are both so “over the top” to me they don’t resonate. Why are Finch’s Batman’s spikes on his gloves in the last image so shredded and being blown unnaturally like that? Why does Daniel include spikey things coming out of Batman’s cape in the second picture? Is there supposed to be a jet pack underneath? The windy effect and shadow is okay in the first picture, however, as it is clearly an overdramatized image.

Overdoing the dramatic effect by these artists isn’t needed; both have skill sets that speak for themselves.

Layton and Daniel although I am not a Daniel or Finch fan.

Can I just take Layton and Buscema :)

Layton.  And since I own one of the Daniel pieces, I suppose I'm locked into Daniel as my response.  But, I do really like Finch's work and am always on the hunt for a nice representation of his to add to my walls.

Layton over Buscema.  The other two are a tie. Batman's spikey shoulders are presumably an homage to Dave McKean's version from Arkham Asylum.

If we're doing brackets, doesn't Kirby or Frazetta always end up winning ??

Bob Layton's Iron Man, by far!

To me, they both look like “Marvel House Art”, lacking in much distinction, except for the stupid face made by Sal’s Hulk.

Maybe Daniel was inspired by Brian Bolland, the first artist I remember doing that.

I've always loved Layton Iron Man. May be hard to tell now, but before I collected art, I collected Iron Man.
