I personally prefer Bagley, but I grew to like Immonen's more scratchier looking art.

Seriously?!......Bagley started it and made 113 issues.....(111 and then 2 DoSM)

And i dont like Immonen's art in this......he's doing a great job at X-Men....idk why he didnt in Ultimate Spider-man....

Immonen's a great artist - but I've never liked his Ultimate stuff. I don't know it looked kinda bland and lifeless, even his work on UXM.

Bagley, for all his flaws, churned out issue after issue and what he lacked in refinement he made up for in dynamism. And he got better as the run went on. Bagley on USM was like Howard Porter on Morrison's JLA.

Bagley is my favourite artist in comics and USM is a big reason why, so I'm gonna have to go with him.

That being said I never thought Immonen did a bad job on the title, the only thing that seemed off about his artwork to me was that he seemed to have trouble doing hands, he wouldn't do them too badly, but they weren't as good as his artwork on everything else, so it just made it stick out.

Bagley, not that I didn't like Immmonen's work its just Bagley's work went hand in hand with the great story telling. Plus he defiantly made it different from his ASM run. The way Spidey moved, specifically the way Ult Pete would swing.

@ninjablade09: I read that Bandis told him to change compeletely everything he knew about the character's moving when they started....!

I don't hate Immmonen's art, but for ultimate Spider-man I prefer Bagley.

Immonen's good, but Bagley's USM is completely mindblowing.

I actually love both, but if I had to choose just one it would be Bagley's art.

That's too tough a call. They were both so great on Ultimate Spider-Man. I'm not voting; I can't.

I love them both but probably Bagley.

Definitely Bagley for me, he's one of the greatest Spider-Man artists out there.

Bagley for sure. Immonens art makes them seem younger than when they started.

Bagley. Im not scared to say that immonen SUCKS. Bagley does the best Spiderman art out of every comic series.

I like both, but I think Bagley did action better and while Immonen does's emotion better, Bagley's panel compistions were better.
