I love JRjR in 90s, be it his Spidey clone saga books, Daredevil or Heart of Darkness but sadly after 2000s with Amazing Spider-man run which started strong but slowly was turned to his current style, Superman year one was one weird looking work, his last good drawn comic was probably Anti Venom story that was inked by Klaus Johnson, so I really think having good inker helps but I really wish he could draw in same style he did back in the day.

Yeah, he really needs a good inker to bring out his best.

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
