    Honestly, so you know where I'm coming from, I can't think of anyone in the current roster that hits my sweet spots... except for maybe Cliff Chang? Does he even work for the biggies any more?
    Well, the next best thing to raising Jack Kirby from the dead is Jose Ladronn:

    Other picks for me would be Andy Kubert. I like his retro style...reminds of his dad. Another choice for me(and he already works for Marvel)is Mark Bagley.

    If you want to see his previous attempt, check out Fantastic Four Annual '99 (Written by Claremont):

    The one thing that people aren't quite grasping is that Marvel, more than DC, has no desire to cater ANYTHING to older readers. It's just a fact. Even the successful things like Avengers 1.1, the story between Avengers 15 and 16, done by Barry Kitson. Other than that they have these NEW artists that really aren't any good. Don't get me started on Del Mundo AWFUL art on the new Thor series. As long as Disney has "bean counters" in charge...the veteran comic book reader/collector will get nothing. Marvel just keeps pumping out 10 million variant covers per issue guaranteeing that the books initial print run sells out making their stock holders happy. It's almost like the "free magazine" push years ago online where you could get free subscriptions to a magazine...it was a scam to keep the advertisers happy and the stockholders happy. It's pretty sad because there are more than enough viable artists and writers that aren't getting any work these days.

    Wow! You're absolutely right! I guess you can add me to the "older readers" category.

    I bought it not really thinking about the art or writing. Just glad to have the comic back up and going and Marvel not playing petty games with the characters that started it all for them. Yes I'd love Byrne to come back and do another FF run but he didn't even do a cover variant for #1 like Perez and Simonson did. I read that he might be coming back for some X-Men book, maybe.

    Dr. Doom in a towel?
    Not using armour any longer or robots, just using magic and the mask.
    Whose stupid idea is this? totally dumb.
    In addition, the art sucked big time. just like about 99.9% of marvel comics does now a days.
