Damn auto correct. I meant Jae Lee!

Esad Ribic for me.

His work on Thor is already legendary. His work gives new meaning to the word 'epic'.

Agreed.

Jae Lee's art becomes annoying after a while

@extremis: his work is already 'legendary'? Hyperbole much?

Jae Lee wins, he's been at it for a long time and even though his work has been lazy in the later years he is versatile. I have some of the Trasformers/GIJoe books he did a long time ago and they were really good. And his covers are always eye catching.

Jae Lee is a bit hit or miss for me whereas Esad Ribic is consistently great.

Jae Lee. He's amazing, especially his earlier stuff, such as The Sentry.

Not a fan of Ribic's faded, painted, almost chalky looking art.

Ugh.. I love them both for totally opposite reasons.. Ribic for his soft transitions and Jae for his high contrast..

I love them both and it is really hard for me to decide but Esad Ribic.

Ribic by a mile.

Jae Lee's good, but his style is an acquired taste, and I can't read too much of it.

Ribic's work, especially when paired with colorist Dean White, is superb. I haven't read his GoT stuff, but his Ultimates pencils are incredible. Sleek, futuristic no-frills aesthetic, it feels very European and set a new look for the Ultimates relaunch.

This is a hard one. I love Lee but still Ribic's art is a masterpiece.
