I like it when Bagley does Spider-man, but anything else no, i guess the same can be said for JRJR.

JRJR had two good X-Men runs and a solid Wolverine arc. Where's yr mutant solidarity Spider-traitor?


Jarrod, de-escalate. GG is entitled to his opinion.

JRJr has one of the ugliest art styles I've ever been forced to endure. His crosshatch shading is dated, his inking is far too heavy, the man draws people far too stiff and rectangular. The man's faces look like a fucked up mannequin.

As for Begley, his art is plain vanilla ugly.

Well, like always I will approach the subject with passion and encyclopedic knowledge

I've always considered JRJR style to be inspired by Frank Miller, only going further,
which is obvious considering that JRJR got his signature style during Daredevil's Man
Without Fear mini, which Miller written.

I assume that Miller probably gave a lesson or two to JRJR, because his style
really got similar to FM.

Anyway, when JRJR started his career, during his UXM days, his style was raw
and looked more like a person straight from art school. It was okay, even if
you can find a lot of people praising that period and considering it essential.

At first, I considered JRJR art a little too blocky and shapey for my taste (I was
introduced to later JRJR), but very quickly I got used to it, and I started to appreciate it.

Nowadays JRJR is mostly hacking it off, due to deadlines, which is something
he admitted himself in one of the interviews. I still have sentiment and respect
for JRJR, however, Senior is obviously better, and more of a real comic book artist

You can see what I mean here



It's very obvious when the contest between sr and jr starts.
it's funny when Sr finishes his son's (abandoned) sketch of
Punisher, while at the same time discussing art and etc.

Mark Bagley is a fascinating case.

I don't think anyone was meant to win the try-out contest, let alone land a job
at marvel, but Bagley did it. I want to remind that there was second try-out
contest, with no winner. The second try-out featured X-book

What is really impressive is that Bagley got the job during the infamous (and under-appreciated)
Shooter's era. Bagley's style, whether someone agrees or not, is the epitome,
the essence of comic book style. He has this slight cartoonish vibe, some
might call it generic, whatever, but I feel at home, when I look at his art.

For years, I craved for Bagley doing an x-book, and the closest we got was
New Warriors, so I'm glad that he is finally doing one, even if it's 20 years too late.
Bagley's art is a little too 90s or too old school for some, as he represents the clean,
workmanship style that rarely strays into abstract or experimental, or unusual the way JRJR does.
And obviously both artists got more or less lazy over years, but
in a fight between Bagley and JRJR, Bagley is a winner for me.

Sorry if I disappointed someone.
