Marvel NOW Captain America #1 preview

I think that John Romita Jr is one of the worst artist in the game today. But this preview is proof that great inks and colors can make even the worst pencils look good.

Thrust into a bizarre, inhospitable world far from home, the all-new, high-adventure, mind-melting, tough-as-nails, sci-fi, pulp-fantasy era of Captain America is NOW! With no country and no allies, what’s left for the Sentinel of Liberty to protect? The Saga of Dimension Z begins here! http://www.comicbookresources.com/?page=preview&id=13847

It doesn't look horrible but I don't like the way he draws faces. Ihope the art stays decent enough to enjoy the story. I wish Epting would come back. He's my favorite artist and like his Captain America better than anyones. McNiven hasn't been bad either in the current edition.

Seem's he's not very good at drawing hands either. They all look kinda messed up

Didn't know there was so much dislike for JRJR. Personally I really like his art. I wonder if this is what it is like to like Rob L.'s art?

@OxeRed: He's a great artist IMO, but JRJR for some reason has been really bombing it lately. I'm pretty sure nobody likes Liefeld :P

The same here. I've always like JRJr.'s art, I was going to pick this up anyways though, but having him on it is gravy, IMO.

@TheAcidSkull: Don't know. The worse to me was Ladronn, he actually got me off of collecting Cable's comic back then.

Jesus, he looks like a shaved ape. LOL.

@TheAcidSkull: Yeah so, now when anyone says that any artist is a bad one, I consider this to be the standard. LOL.
