I can respect his long tenure in comics but his style has never appealed to me either.

most of the time his panels seem lazy. Instead of the level of detail say George Perez put into each panel, JRjr would rather put in speed lines where feet would go. Nah, Ive never taken news of JRjr joining a book as good news

Venom looks emaciated. But I will probably read it. Come on! 60 years!

Never been a fan of JRJr. I remember collecting X-Men comics in the early 90s and hated Uncanny X-Men because of his art.

I preferred JR Jr's. earlier stuff when he was first working on ASM. It looked a little like his father's style but was still differentenough to be his own thing. I'm not too wild about what his artwork has evolved into. It's veryrecognizable, but a little too 'distinctive'' for my tastes. Everything looks a bit flat for some reason, and he makes some odd choices like drawing Spidey's head kind of square looking. I still like his work a lot, just not quite as much as I did when he first started out. Wish he'd stuck with his more traditional style.

Well I'm with you on that, it does bother me. If the book is supposed to be a new thing, then give it a new title. Otherwise stick with the numbering system that's already there. I mean, your book has been published consistently for 60 years and you have one of the most recognized and beloved characters around. Be proud of that!

I really don't like the art at all. I never have cared for his art but looks almost worse now. And a new #1? I just don't understand why they can't keep the numbering, they do the legacy # still too. I just get tired of new volumes. Just a nick pick of mine and it doesn't bother most people.

A new #1 is a marketing plot. New readers and collectors are more likely to buy a #1, which is generally designed to be a jumping on point, than issue #868 or something

The only reason he has a foot in the door was because his father _________. Fill in the blank.

Um, John Romita Jr. has drawn three times as many comics at Marvel as his father. JRjr had defining runs onIron Man and the X-Men, and he was a signature artist on Spider-Man comics for three differentdecades.I agree with the general assessment that his style has devolved andis almost unreadable now, but the man was no hack. He's one of the most tenured and accomplished artists any of the big companies has ever produced.

Volume doesn't necessarily equate to quality. JRJR may have done more 'cause he's possibly faster, but the overall quality of his work, especially as the years have gone by, has really gone down. Ohhh but that run he did with Roger Stern...beautiful. Its hands down one of my favorite Spider-Man runs, 2nd only to Romita Sr. And while I can see that Jazzy John may have got him through the door, his work (definitely his earlier efforts) speaks for itself. Overall, though, I agree with you... I don't think its fair to say he's in comics only 'cause of Dear Old Dad.

Really?! The story where the Lizard eats his own son? One of Spidey's best? I don't think so.
