Those are from 'Hush' the graphic novel (specifically the 2nd volume). Although you'll need the first too to get a grasp of the story

never understood the cross hatch art style movement of the 90's. he was no different than any of the other Image artists, he just stayed around longer. hes not ground breaking by any means.

I really dislike Jim's style, simply for the fact that the whole 'dark, brooding, mysterious figure of terror' part of the character is lost. He's just basically Marv from Sin City in costume.

I would love to see Lee draw his Batman with Nightwing's body type.

I love his work on the x-men, particularly the shi'ar saga with the entire team in the original colors.

True, he's overrated and talented. I agree entirely.

I don't think he's overrated or overestimated. There are far too many people who don't like his art or his style for him to be that, anymore. Granted, he has hell of alot of fans, too. But whenever I see Lee's name in a debate or an argument on the boards, it's usually followed by a ton of scrutiny that cancels out any actual praise to his artwork.

I think the best way to describe him, nowadays, is as the ultimate 'Love 'em or leave 'em' artist.

I don't know how you can diss Jim Lee. Someone on here was complaining about how all of his characters are macho super heroes...he draws super heroes and heroins...they are supposed to be muscular. I've seen a lot of worse artwork out there. At least its not creepy looking like finches work. "Lets just give each character a jillion muscles and take five months to do it, b/c all my work is so freaking over detailed and my characters look ugly."

One of the reasons why I like Jim is because he has improved so much as an artist. Take a look at the progression from Alpha flight 51 to X-Men #1. His art style first came out with Punisher war journal back in 88 one year after he had started. You can tell that he's someone who really works he's arse off. 10 to 14 hours per page 6 days a week. At least thats what he was saying back in an interview in 92.

I know a lot about this guy b/c he is my biggest inspiration. So I don't tolerate people bashing jim.

Right now, my top 5 (in no particular order) goes something like:

Lee
Finch
Mazzucchelli
Sale
Capullo

Would also strongly consider including Breyfogle.

Lee is overrated, but he's still awesome. So whatever, I don't care about the hype, I care about the art. And the art is damn good.
