It looks like Neal Adams has upgraded it. Neal Adams' art for Batman: Odyssey looks much more detailed than his earlier art.

Neal Adams said, "I have never been able to bring my "A" game to Batman, to my satisfaction. Oh, a little here and there, but all out? Never, never. On this project? Yep."

Lee didnt always draw like that. If i am not mistaken, his first works looked like Liefield's but over the years he's become a god.
Jim Lee has obviously improved in anatomy and his art is much more detailed on All-Star Batman than his first works had been.

Obviously i enjoy different artists and i appreciate Adams, so i'll enjoy his work.

Btw, Quitely and Nguyen are my favourite artists, who are yours?
A wide variety. Neal Adams, Kelley Jones, Dave McKean, Jim Lee, Adam Hughes, Darwyn Cooke, Kyle Baker, Gene Colan, Kevin Nowlan, Bill Sienkiewicz, Frank Miller, the late great Wally Wood.

Half-man, half-bat.

On AMC Mondays.
