    first.

    I choose "dynamic"

    EDIT: oh wait this isn't an article XD.

    But yeah, I like dynamic styles....regardless of the "style", be it manga, western, cartoony, I like artists whose panels are badass and convey motion and action with zeal and burst.

    some artists i like that i feel fit this category:
    Joe MAD
    Eiichiro Oda
    Kubo Tite
    John Romita Jr
    Erik Larson

    theres more but im feelin lazy

      What's Hyper-Realism? Is that like Neal Adams or Brian Bolland? If so then that's for me.

        I voted "cartoony and super simplified", because, while it's not quite there, it's probably the closest to what I think is the ideal style for comics. Ideally, I could've voted for "stylized in a way that suits the subject matter, and simplified to a degree that is appealing and flexible, and allows for direction of the reader's attention based on level of detail without looking artificial."

        However, really, "golden age", "manga" and "cartoony" can all pretty much be folded into the same thing. "Hyper-realistic" is the only one that's fundamentally different. (And wrong -- I said it!)

          Cartoony and super-simplified-- I'm a big fan of Mike Oeming, Phil Hester, Bruce Timm, Genndy Tartakovsky (I know not comics), and others like them. It's also the style I fit in. I use to really hate calling my style this, but I've come to embrace it.

            Hm. Fairly realistic proportions and anatomy with simplified or stylized rendering. Impressionistic to a degree... the economy of line of a cartoonier artist with the figures of a more classical artist.

            ...That is really specific, isn't it?

              Silver age is not an option on your list. I like Buscema, Byrne, Colan, etc. I don't really consider them golden age, nor hyper-realistic either. Something in between.
              Cheers, Alex

                Yeah, that's a good point. I'd probably land in silver age if I had to pick. I figured "old school" included em, but it depends on who on this forum you want to call old. Har.

                    I like all kinds of stuff to be honest, whether it's realistic, "classic" or cartooning and animated styles. Anyone who's spent any time with me or around me knows this. I certainly lean towards "Silver Age", like Alex. Since I grew up reading Silver and Bronze Age books, that's not too surprising. The short list: Jack Kirby, Steve Ditko, Wally Wood, John Buscema, Berni Wrightson, Alex Toth, Neal Adams, Don Newton, Doug Wildey, Gene Colan, Joe Kubert , Al Williamson, Dave Stevens, Bruce Timm, Darwyn Cooke, Gil Kane, John Romita, John Romita Jr, Mike Mignola, Guy Davis, Walt Simonson, Herge, Hayao Miyazaki, Kenichi Sonoda, Leiji Matsumoto, Alex Raymond, Hal Foster, Roy G. Krenkel, Will Elder, Graham Ingles, Jack Davis, Mark Schultz, Frank Frazetta, Milton Caniff, Mobius, Jose Gonzales, Mike Zeck, Lou Fine, Tex Avery, Dean Yeagle, Bret Blevins, Winsor McCay, Steve Rude, Andrew Loomis, Franklin Booth, Charles Vess, Michael Kalutta, Carl Barks, Dan DeCarlo, Ernie Colon, Alfredo Alcala, Ryan Sooke, Arthur Adams, Jose Luis Garcia-Lopez, Adam Hughes, John Byrne, and a few really good PJ artists who I won't embarrass here.

                        Just a quick note .... the lack of options was a deliberate method to spark conversation ...

                        Carry on!

                            I've always had an affinity towards manga (Captain Obvious saves the day again), though really, I'll go for anything that isn't too realistic. If it looks traced or too heavily referenced, I'll pass. I guess it's a little strange, but I'd have more fun reading a comic drawn in stick figures than I would a comic with incredible photo-realistic artwork.
                            I am why we can't have nice things.

                              I'm somewhere between old-school and cartoony. Artists like Mike Allred and Darwyn Cooke do it for me.
