    This will end well.

    Does Chee and the guy that did Spotlight Orion count? If so those two are the least favourite.

    The dudes who did the MTMTE Annual need to go back to the drawing board (pun intended). The rest of the art honestly I'm pretty cool with in different ways. The nice thing is with most of the artists in the rotation, we've developed enough sense of their styles now that if for a particular issue I do happen to see Guido or Roche on the cover I know going in what to expect and don't do a knee jerk "zomg this looks more cartoony than before oh noes!!!" kinda thing. I realize its just a variation for awhile and am cool with it. In that sense my big thing with the MTMTE Annual wasn't that the art and coloring style was totally different, I don't mind that, its just that it was a style that also happened to pretty much suck.

    Milne, Roche, Guidi and Burcham are my favorites.

    Griffith and Ramondelli have their moments too. I respect their work, but they are second-tier for me.

    Even though his style is out of fashion, Wildman kinda holds a special place in my heart, largely by virtue of nostalgia. The quality of his work on Regeneration One I have found to be pretty erratic, however.

    I'd like to see Su more involved in the current books. I really enjoyed the Mignola-esque style he started using. I sometimes wish he was the main artist on RID.

    Favourites are Milne, Guido and Roche

    Least favourite would have to be Chee, I remember someone saying it was a "classic style" but uh... no.

    EDIT: Actually Change my least favourite from Chee to Farinas, I had completely blanked that one from my mind.

    - Favorite - Alex Milne, Nick Roche, Andrew Griffith and Guido Guidi (especially his 'retro' style art).

    - Least Favorite - Ramondelli. Does some nice covers, but I can't tell what the hell is going on half the time in his interiors. The artists of Spotlights Orion Pax and Thundercracker weren't very good either.

    It never ends.

    OH also I really liked the artwork of that Mars Attack crossover. I really hope that guy does some more comics.
