As an artist I find that I am drawn to comics with good art, but sometimes that artwork is attached to a comic or a story that really just sucks. So tell me, can you think of any comics where there is really good art, but you really can't stand the story, or it is just kind of lame?

My first case is right here. I like the artwork, but honestly, the story seemed a little familiar.

also every time I open a thread no matter how hard I search someone tells me in the first 3 posts that there is already one. So if that is the case please just get this out of here. We don't need 20 posts complaining about repetitive threads.
 
lol. Is it anything like Captain America?
I love the Alex Ross' artwork for the Justice series but, in my opinion,the story itself wasn't that great.

Superman For Tommorrow(the Jim Lee one). I think Brian Azzarello is a great writer but that story was confusing.
 
When Daniel Way was on Ghost Rider, it was a nightmare...the only thing that kept me reading was Javiar Saltaires and Mark Texiera's great artwork. Now finally they have Jason Aaron writing Ghost Rider and things are finally looking up!
 
Pretty much anything that Image did in the early 90's. Kick ass art, very mediocre stories.

But the artwork is horrible now...

I loved Roland Boschi's artwork...and just as I got warmed up to the thought of this artist being on the monthly they dump him for Tan Eng Huat who is "OK" but he draws a really lousy Ghost Rider (lets hope he gets better before the Gr vs Gr fight!).

They should bring back Saltaires/Texiera for the book, and if they can't, why not than Ron Garney, Adam or Andrew Kubert, Ron Wagner, or LaRocca? Give us some of the old school 90s GR artists!

As long as they get rid of this Tan Eng Huat. We are finally getting the GR stories we've been waiting for but the artwork is terrible.

That was probably the point...

What comic is that? I want to look it up. Who draws that? Looks like Jim Lee to me but I'm not great with attaching styles to names :huh: In fact, I suck at it
