Now that Jim lee has started drawing superman unchained and that he finished up on Justice League and i recently read Batman Hush.

I was thought to myself that i like Jim Lee on team books (Justice League and X-men) more than single character books (Hush and For tomorrow). This because i LIKE Jim Lee's Superman, Batman, Wonder Woman, Hal Jordan, Flash and Aquaman. (mainly Aquaman)

What do you think?

Upper echelon of artist in comic history. And that's how he'll be remembered when he's done with comics.

I would put him on every book I read if I had the chance. The guy's art is amazing.

It was maybe super-awesome in the early 2000s, but I think most people are over it now...or at least I am

His art is awe inspiring. Marvel needs to get him back, and put him on a Wolverine book :)

Very fitting compliment.

He clearly isn't as good as he was.He is still good just not great.

Comparison between his 2005 and 2013 pre 52 superman.
I loved him on For Tomorrow but his work since then is not in the same league.

Also both pictures are covers from books so he probably put the same work on both of them

2005
2013

I don't see his style working for books outside of the capes and cowls genre though, and honestly it can look very dated sometimes, but that could be due to other factors (inks, colors, etc.).

He was my favorite artist when I was 13, now at the old age of 34........ My taste in comic art changed. I'll take Phil Noto, David Aja or Fiona Staples any day over Jim Lee....... Not saying Jim Lee art is bad........

I love Jim Lee's art no matter on which book.

I just love the guy.If I can see his artwork in every book I am reading it would be great.

I like how he has a very sharp look, which I think works perfectly for these young New 52 heroes, but a lot of the time when people try to ink his work it comes off as scratchy and messy. When he shades in characters--which he does heavily on faces/necks--it's like he's thinking about how the sketch looks, and not how it will look post-production.

His art is astounding, but characters can look messy when finished.

He's still good not great. He's actually gotten better at not reusing poses all the time but the faces still all look the same mostly. I still buy his stuff though.
