These two for sure were the ultimate pure superhero artists of the 80s. They've done countless classic comics between them. Who is your favorite of the two?

I love them both. But I give edge to. . .BYRNE!

It's hard to say why exactly. There was just something about Byrne's prime work that was so elegant, compelling, and satisfying. It just "flowed" for lack of a more descriptive term.

Perez was sheer expert as well and pure fun and amazement, but somehow didn't *quite* reach that same level of gravitas in my eyes.

Perez gave you a sense of the character.
Byrne gave you a sense of the action.
Stan Lee did both

Both guys had iconic works in various books

Byrne at his best...was must have comics
Perez was always at his best and thus always a treat

This is a no lose choice - these guys made it easy to enjoy comics
