I voted for Silvestri out of homage to him for the Australian Team X-Men run. Damn that sh_t was hot! Wicked awesome.
i gotta go with lee, maybe 10 years ago this wouldve been closer im not sure what the hell he didbut silvestri's stuff has just fallen off WAAAAAY too much for me
jimlee is the best artist in the world..
Be Happy & Make All Happy!!!!!
No one pictures Dan Jurgens Superman? That was good art he brought out. I always picture Frank Millers Batman. cause its the first Batman story that I loved.
As for Jim Lee and Sylvestri I have to go with Jim Lee He's the reason I picked up a pencil and started drawing.
Wins = 14
losses = 22
KO Win = 9
Tie = 1 (WHAT??? A tie??)

The poll is heavily favoring Jim Lee but each artist on their day would be a hard choice to pick. I'll go for Jim Lee because he counts as a major influence during my formative years and I can't seem to shake it off. I first picked up his work during his Uncanny stint when there was the Extinction Agenda crossover. At the time he drew the best versions of Wolverine and comic book females.
His take on backgrounds and hi tech stuff were better than Silvestri's. I only started collecting Silvestri's art during his Wolverine run in the 90s. He has a great sketch energy that I thought Dan Green brought out well.
I favored Silvestri over Lee during his run on Cyberforce when Chris Claremont was wrote a few issues. The colour and inks really suited his style.
Nowadays I prefer Lee's style. It may not deviate too much from the 15 years plus but his work is so easy too read and follow. Silvestri's work is really busy at times and I'm sure there are fans who prefer that.
Either way, they still deliver the goods. (When their books are published.)

i dont think the main reason for voting for one artist or the other should be "he draws more detailed" or whatever. i voted jim because like i said, his con sketches are awesome, and his stuff is more exciting when he draws fight scenes, IMO.
Change that to Liefeld's drawing of guns, tech and equipment and see how he fares in the polls. Lee has an eye for detail that sets him apart from others.
And anyway, this is Fanboys Unleashed. If I wanna say I like Jim Lee because he likes cheese and Silvestri doesn't*, then you just have to deal with it.
*I have no idea if Silvestri doesn't like cheese, or even if Jim Lee actually does, btw. Just saying, is all.
Money can't buy you happiness, but it will pay for the search.
