Is anyone else reading this book? It's outstanding. I'm the biggest mark for Warren Ellis there is, but Juan Jose Ryp should be listed among the 4 or 5 best artists in the industry. He's that good.

If you're not reading it, pick up a copy. Do yourself a favour.

Whoa? Really? He's great - but not top 4 or 5 great!

Although those first three pages of this issue were cool.

I think I have to respectfully disagree. If you look at the top handful of artists in the business, I think Ryp is better than a couple of them (Jim Lee springs immediately to mind). Ryp's like a combination of Geof Darrow and Frank Quitely. The level of detail in his pencils is unreal. I think that is the reason why he's not bigger in the industry, it must take him forever to complete a page (which also explains why No Hero, and Black Summer, had nothing like a regular publishing schedule.)

Hell, at least you're reading it! :thumbs:

Ryp is definitly part of that huge collective that can be called the best~

Check out his Robocop w/ Frank Miller it's a violent masterpiece.

I have... and I still disagree... but I'm one of the few thats not really a fan of Geof Darrow and Frank Quitely, either. Jim Lee on the other hand I love but he's not in my top twenty.

My taste lies squarely in between Mark Bagley and Bruce Timm
