who to take over justice league art
Ivan Reis is arguably the best artist in DC on par if not above Jim Lee hope he has a long stint on JL other than that the artists mentioned above are all fine.
This. Reis really is the best 'traditional superhero artist' in the industry right now - to my knowledge and in my opinion, at least. I really hope he stays on for a long run; his art is superb and makes Johns' occasional missteps tolerable. Plus, he draws a kickass Batman!
But if Reis were to leave, I'd nominate Gary Frank to be his replacement. While I'm not entirely confident that he can bring the dynamic wide-screen action that JL needs, his art as a whole is very pretty and well composed.
Nicola Scott (Earth-2) is the only other artist at DC on par with Ivan Reis and Jim Lee, though Kenneth Rocafort (Red Hood and the Outlaws), Ethan van Sciver (The Fury of Firestorm), David Finch (Batman: The Dark Knight) could all conceivably do acceptable jobs on DC's flagship title as well.
I miss Jim Lee. I love his art so much. IMO Ivan Reis and Doug Mankhe are similar, where as Nicola Scott is just a step below them. Gary Frank, while incredible, is better on a more classic and less "dynamic" book. His Silver Age/Richard Donner film-esque Superman covers are my favorite. So if I can't have Lee, I'd take either Reis or Manke. They both go well with Johns. Just not Rockafort. I totally love Rockafort, but his prettiness wouldn't work here.
