Alex Ross and Jim Lee. I am definitely a fan of bodybuilder Superman (though not EXTREME Rob Liefeld type of art), and I have always liked Jim's work since I was a wee lad. Alex Ross gets tons of hype, but I think his style works particularly well for my image of Superman.I think Byrne is a grade A penciler (and writer), but I sort of resent him for powering Superman down so much and his Superman is too light for my tastes.

Dan Jurgens has always been one of my favorites. 
 

 

As like everyone else, I enjoy Jim Lee and Alex Ross, too.

Maybe Loeb is really Ed McGuiness. After all, their names are often seen together. They worked on Superman/Batman together, created Red Hulk, and more.....

Alex Ross. I know he draws Marvel heroes as well but his DC characters look epic and mythical which is what they're suppose to be like.
