I personally don't feel that way but have read some forum discussions that state he is. Why do you think he is? There are much worst artist that have disgraced the pages of Spider-Man such as Klaus Jansen (possibly only in a cover but the shittiest thing I have ever seen published by Marvel) or that Ramos fellow. Does JRJR suck that bad. Do you feel that he only made it because of daddy (who by the way is the greatest Marvel artist, sorry Kirby fans)?
 
Please do tell

no way...imo he's one of the best Spider-man artists...same with Daredevil....I will admit that I did not like his cover for Avengers #1

#3 Posted by The Jeff (290 posts) - - Show Bio

what people seem to forget is that he hasn't always drawn the way he does now. His early 80s work on Spider-Man echoed his dad's stuff

I LOVE his artwork. No idea why some people don't, but that's their thing, so it's alright.

He's not my favorite, but he is far from the worst.

#6 Posted by jlat89 (317 posts) - - Show Bio

there have definitely been "worse" artwork then Romita jr.

Romita Jr. is great he had some cool artwork in the 90's for Spider-man

JRJR is a disgrace to the industry. I can almost garantee that he has this poster hanging in his office:

You heretics!!!! JRJR Is GOD.... 
 
(Joking) 
 
But I really like his art....

Who ever said JRJR is the worst Spidy artist eve is full of SHIT and I mean the bad kind of SHIT 
I'm reading JMS's run on Amazing Spidy and I have to say his art adds to the humor that JMS puts into the first 7 volumes of the book and his work on New Ways To Die and Character Assassination which are two of the most important stories to come out of brand new day gives us awesome  fight scenes So any one who says his art is shit can go to Hell

man, you read my mind.  Top 3 spider man artist for me.  And my real beef with his Avengers cover IMO is his unfamiliarity with Iron mans new duds.  He def needs to step that Iron man up cuz its looking cooler almost everywhere I see it but in Avengers promo's

I wouldn't say he's my favorite spidey artist... but he's definitely not the worst...

By far one of the best.  

#15 Posted by Owie (3690 posts) - - Show Bio

One of the best...I've liked him ever since he was doing Uncanny X-Men in the 80s.  His style has gotten more impressionistic, but that's fine with me.

his work on spidey was amazing. though i might be biased
#17 Posted by gravitypress (2069 posts) - - Show Bio

JRJR is awesome.

#18 Posted by keith71_98 (387 posts) - - Show Bio

He WAS great. At one time his art was simply fantastic. But now he's developed his modern "style" and I think it looks terrible. In fact I'll skip a title if he's attached to it. It's a shame that he's made such a drastic and unneeded change.

Anti JRJR folks are just ignorant. They probably prefer reading Liefield comics anyway.

If his art was a good in Avengers as it was in his Spider-Man runs I might have actually liked Avengers a little more...but sadly laziness took over and well that was that.... -__-

Ignorant? That's a little strong. First, comic art is a matter of taste. Doesn't make someone ignorant. But I stand by my statement that his "new" style is horrible compared to what he is capable of.
#24 Posted by SpideySense (39 posts) - - Show Bio

He is so not the worst. If you're looking for worst, you can try looking at Eric Canete's work. He made Spider-man's limbs look like Mr. Fantastic's. Stretch.

I mean New ways to die from what I read was good.

#28 Posted by Vincent92 (261 posts) - - Show Bio

he is nt the worse but i just simply don't like his art in general, dosen't mean he is a bad artist, just not my cup of tea

#29 Posted by Vincent92 (261 posts) - - Show Bio

me, i think Marcos Martin is better suited for spiderman

#30 Posted by WaveMotionCannon (5377 posts) - - Show Bio

I like JRJR, he's been better, don't really fancy his "new" style. Definitely seen worse.

#31 Posted by PikminMania (4628 posts) - - Show Bio

JRJR - One of my favorite artists period, the only comics where he seemed to forget how to draw was in 2011. Now he seems to be on a roll again.

Ramos - His style fits perfectly with Spider-man since many times it's comedic. If he was drawing a Sin City comic then I'd say that he should stop but Spider-man is good.

Klaus Janson - Because when I think bad art I think this:

What If? Daredevil Vs Elektra

And this too. Eric Canete is probably one of the worst (Spider-Man) artist ever!

From The Amazing Spider-Man #611:

It's such a shame, really. This issue could have been great with Deadpool guest starring in it but the art was so awful I nearly threw up :(

Count me as one more person who loves the art of John Romita Jr. I truly don't get the tastes of the guys who think otherwise.

#34 Posted by Supreme Marvel (11264 posts) - - Show Bio

So you've seen every artwork for every Spider-Man comic?

#35 Posted by Strider92 (16265 posts) - - Show Bio

JR's 90's Spider-man run was awesome he's far from the worst. I'd probably put him in the top 3. I will admit his new stuff is somewhat lacking but he's still above average.

#36 Posted by Deranged Midget (17599 posts) - - Show Bio

God no, he's one of the best.

See what I was talking about? That's like Mr. Fantastic on a Spider-man costume who is very malnourished and has bad case of arthritis. Geez. I am so glad this thread was resurrected. There's just no way JRJR is the worst Spidey artist.

#38 Posted by SpideySense (39 posts) - - Show Bio

If you ask me, Rob Liefeld is probably the worse to ever draw Spider-man (or any other character) in a professional setting. Though he is not really a Spider-man artist and he never drew Spidey in a major way, he still drew Spidey on occasion. Wanna see? Here, have fun scratching your eyes out:

Oh, hey, I didn't know Spidey became an alien. And, just a teeny tiny quick question: where's his knees??? And while you're at it, why are his feet so tiny...and is that a bowling ball hidden on his leg?
Sh*t! I always thought Spidey had five fingers on each hand. Wait. Wait a f*ck*ng second. Are those crow's feet? Oh look, the missing finger (?) is sprouting from the middle of the other hand. There, saw it? Great, you can now curl into a ball and cry.
I thought Spidey shoots, gee I don't know, webs? You know, from his 'web-shooters'? I didn't he was also manufacturing jungle vines. What a guy. Oh, and why is his bottom looking so much like a dog's? Is that Spider-man? Oh, I'm sorry, I didn't know he has evolved into Spider-dog.

His Spider-Man work is....decent. However, that's probably the best work he's ever done. Just look at Eternals, World War Hulk, Avengers, and Sentry.

It's either him or Ramos.

What's wrong with Ramos? His artstyle is very fitting for spider-man

#43 Posted by tupiaz (2175 posts) - - Show Bio

@spideysense: Pretty classic spider-man pose he has jump like that many times. The web is spaghetti invented by McFarlane.

One of the worst is Ron Frenz his art was very stiff and boring and the panels was 3x3 more or less on every page however this should been a rule shooter used for many titles. However you could have a fight scene with almost 9 identical fight scenes. This was about 5 years after Frank Miller had introduced the noir style in Daredevil. However the art in the Hobgoblin lives and later on I remember to be better.

#44 Posted by Strider92 (16265 posts) - - Show Bio

He's far from the worst. In fact his 90's stuff was pretty damn good.

#45 Posted by WaveMotionCannon (5377 posts) - - Show Bio

JRJR is a classic Spidey artist and far from the worst. I'll admit I'm not a fan of his current style but he's tolerable.

#46 Posted by kcjr (286 posts) - - Show Bio

I love JRJR's work, especially on Spider-man.

#47 Posted by Chibio (920 posts) - - Show Bio

I liked Romitas work on the Spider-Man comics, but back then it looked like he was trying harder. Nowdays every single one of his characters looks the same.

#48 Posted by TDK_1997 (14685 posts) - - Show Bio

The guy is amazing.He is maybe the best Spider-Man artist ever.But there are also Bagley,McFarlane and others that are also great but Romita Jr. is great for me.
