What specifically makes Alex Ross a hack in your opinion? I think he brought a completely different angle to the Superhero art form and gave a unique sense of realism to the physical presence of the characters he drew/draws. Does that make him a hack? A hack to me is someone who either is completely crap at what he/she does or copies/rips off another's style.

I guess you can tell I'm an Alex Ross fan.

SD i'd like Ross for the fact he can't draw Spider-man. If he can't draw Spidey i ain't a fan.

Fair enough Bulls. But I love his take on the JLA especially Batman (obv).

Did you not like Marvels then?

His JLA stuff is awesome no doubt and most of his Marvel stuff is also great.

Sorry...but gotta say Alex Ross ROCKS!!!!!

NO ONE can paint like he does, Watson comes close...but not close enough

I love the realism he does with the characters, makes the medium look mature. Everything I put up on the Walls in my office are done by him or Watson...I love many of the Artists but for a mature look at work I gotta go with these two...now at home is a different story!

I enjoy the hard hero line and a lot of my friends here in my country are getting the whole line..=)..but I started with backtracking the bowens that i've missed and going forward with sideshow..I"m afraid i have no more funds for another line...I do agree that the sculpts are class A work and they should be very desirable in the future given the sculpt and the run..=)

Same here. That's what I think is great about his art. I only wish I could afford a canvas O7 giclee.

Ok I'm going overboard saying he's a hack. The dude could draw I just hate his style. IMO it sucks.
