Re: [picture] Jim Lee sketch of TDK/Rises style Batman


Agreed with the over-use. I somewhat like his work more back in the 90's

Re: [picture] Jim Lee sketch of TDK/Rises style Batman


I guess that it will naturally be a matter of taste after all.

Jim Lee is one of my favorites, but just as with everything with Batman, I can appreciate almost every art style as a part of the Batman legacy.
For example, Tim Sale wasn't working for me at first (talk about non-human faces :lol) but in reading the stories and seeing more and more detail in his work, I started to like it. Same goes for Miller and his TDKR and TDKSA.
But even though I will agree with you that Jim Lee's faces are quite similar, he always keeps subtle differences fitting to the specific characters. On top of that, I always felt that it mattered less because a big part of the superhero community wears masks and is more defined by other elements of their appearance.

I just don't like his character designs. His proportions are just too weird for me. I'll give one example: his Joker. Lee's design for Joker doesn't even look like a real human being:

Compare that to the designs by, say, Lee Bermejo (who designed the Joker this way before TDK, despite what many say)

Or the design by Alex Ross:

And Lee's art looks like over-stylized garbage. But that's just my opinion, an opinion which causes me to dislike his work. His art always takes me out of the story. That, and he's usually teamed with a colorist who paints his work garish colors. Like I said, my opinion.



Man I love Lee Bermejo's art. Of course, it's so intricate that it's impossible for him to hit a monthly deadline for anything more than a cover.

I own both Joker and Batman Noel, they are fantastic

I have a love/hate thing with Lee. Loved his work during his run on X-Men. It set the new standard. But he hasn't evolved as an artist since.

I don't like his designs, as a designer, he's just not that good. All his costumes look the same. I don't like that DC had him re-design nearly the entire universe. Do all heroes and villians shop at the same place? Where is the diversity?
