There are some things I do like about the artist (the way a story flows and the heroism to the figures) but I'm not the biggest fan of photo realism in comic art. Plus, does it look to anyone else that he uses male models for his female characters? I know unattractive people can be super-heroes too but do they all have to be fugly?

I liked Alex Ross' art at first. But then when every publisher was sporting comics with Ross covers I grew sick of seeing his art. By 1999-2000 I couldn't stand looking at his work anymore. It's only been the past 2 years that I have been able to return to his work and enjoy it. His work on JUSTICE was fantastic and that brought him back into my good graces.
