Eh depends really. The tone of the story. Darker, grittier, more emotional stuff? Hardman. Ed for the bright, fun, loud stuff.

Have never been much of a fan of Ed McGuiness, characters are a bit too ripped and bubbled for my taste. Hardman has nice classic super-hero artwork.

I'm in love with Hardman's art in Hulk, it's so pretty and artistic, specially in the Omegex arch. Rulk looks kinda huggable under his pen, and I love it

It's not even close.

Hardman for Red (I love that they're taking it seriously enough to even try and phase out the Rulk moniker). McGuinness is larger than life and iconic, but in this case Harman's art give the character the serious tone it sorely needed to redeem it, so it works. Maybe this is also because of the writing it's compounded with adding to the effect, I'm not sure.

Ed FTW

Definitely Ed McGuiness. He brings the SUPER to super heros with his exaggerated muscles and fun feel

Hardman for me and by far. Not a fan of EM's work.

Hardman needs more mainstream work.
