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:
@keith71_98 said: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.
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.
And this too. Eric Canete is probably one of the worst (Spider-Man) artist ever!
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 :(
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.
Since I love the Silver Age, I'll pick from there.
ASM #32-33 was pretty emotional. It was when Peter's blood transfusion to Aunt May a few issues back started to affect her in a bad way, like radioactive bad. And then he asked the help of Dr. Connors as Spidey to find a cure, but then a very important serum in creating the cure was stolen by Doc Oc, and Spider-man just want into a rampage.
This was the part when Peter was just graduating from high school and Ned Leeds have asked Betty Brant to marry him. I guess it's shown me Spidey in his most human form. Plus he also started blaming himself that his Aunt is about to die and then he remembered Uncle Ben...it was heartbreaking to say the least. Everything was just being poured into his shoulders. It was a very human struggle. Reminded me that there is a Peter Parker inside everybody.
Oh, and it didn't help that 5 issues later, Steve Ditko drew his last issue of Spider-man.
(P.S. I just want to clarify, I wasn't born yet at the time. Just read the digital copies of the Silver Age. LOL. I just passed my teens, man!)
So, my question is this -- what if the roles were reversed? What if, instead of Batman wearing the mask of Bruce Wayne, Bruce Wayne wore the cape and cowl and fought crime as the Batman? Would he be a better or worse crimefighter? His intellect would be the same, but would he have the same motivation, the same training? How would his moral code work? Would he kill, lacking the bloodthirst of the Bat that requires him to rein himself in?
Gotham is a dark, very dark, place even for superheroes (or crime-fighters). Gotham is a battleground of keeping your sanity. So I'm just guessing, but I think a millionaire playboy trolling the streets as a caped crusader wouldn't last long. Batman fights criminals because it gives meaning to his life. Heck, it is his life. Without it, he is nobody. But Bruce Wayne, he can live without the persona of Batman prowling in the dark. In my opinion, either of the two will happen:
1. Bruce Wayne moonlighting as Batman will eventually quit because he cannot handle the psychological battle of fighting Gotham's criminals.
2. He'd turn into a nut. He'll be so affected and then he will become Batman and Bruce Wayne will once again become the mask. (did that make sense)
Whoa, nice question there! Made me think.
