    I have not had much experience collecting comics but with Transformers the IDW Collection omnibus coming out of the works I've been buying them up over the months, i really enjoy the stories that have been brought out over the years but there is one artist that does work i'm disgusted too look at and that is

    Livio Ramondelli's work it makes for pretty cool cover art but other than that it's too dark and gritty
    i can barely tell any bot apart from one another with the exception of Optimus and Megatron or some
    other bot that really sticks out like Soundwave and his friends

    With MTMTE i can easily tell each bot apart from one another, not only that the art pretty and the faces look like they are not from the bayverse

    outside of the IDW i have no other comic experiences that i can talk about.

    Oh Lord, whomever it was drawing the Marvel books that gave them nostrils and overly human body features. Andrew Wildman? Yeah, think that's it.

    So we're never supposed to discuss things that we dislike? Ever?

    Livio Ramondelli. His art is terrible. From start to finish. He should not be drawing sequential comics.

    Andrew Wildman is one of my all time favorite comic artists.

    G1Prowl's post does not impact me in the slightest. He is allowed his opinion (His very wrong opinion).

    Okay I'll say

    Livio Ramondelli: Is not my favorite.
    It's difficult to make out familiar characters or situations because of how rough and dark the art is.

    Also I like all the artists of the lostlight, and the marvel stuff

    Don't get me wrong, I love Wildman's superhero work. He just shouldn't be allowed to touch TFs. It's no different than when Hanna Barbera tried to put filler scenes in Battle Of The Planets and they proved they could NOT draw in the Japanese style.

    Fave: Milne.
    Least Fave: Livio. Sorry, Man. Seem like a helluva nice guy, and I couldn’t draw a blank page, I just think he should be doing something other than TransFormers:/

    To be fair: I didn’t like Milne on a Megatron:Origin.

    Conclusion: my opinion is stupid. ;)

    Well, I was going to say Livio, because his work is largely unreadable murk with unrecognisably off-model characters, but that Heart of Darkness work from Farinas is swaying me...

    I mean. It IS good. Just at the time it was new to me and there was so much packed into each panel I just had a hard time with it. I’m sure if I went back now I would feel different. Milne has quickly became my fave almost instantly with MTMTE.
    It’s a shame he couldn’t continue on Lost Light but at least I have Unicron #0 to look forward to.

    I'm actually surprised by the responses in here... Livio is tied with Figueroa for my all time favorite TF artists.

    Really? Would you care to elaborate about what you like about his art? Is it his composition or detail with character design? If possible, could you post your favorite images he's drawn?
