The so-called artist you're referring to for that story is Carlos Meglia.

Meglia stinks big-time!

And he was advertised as some great artistic 'talent'.

*BLEECCHH!!*

Y'know, that story wouldn't have been half-bad if a halfway decent artist had drawn it.  We don't need a Ross or Adams level guy, just a competent artist like Swan could have pulled that off and made it work.

McGuinness' cartoony Micheline Man incarnation of Superman also is far too overrated.  He gets raves for looking more cartoony?  Meanwhile Adams, Ross, Anderson, Swan, and Perez -- who are far greater talents! -- never get a nod.  But McG gets a flippin' award.

There ain't no justice ...

BWAHAHAHAHAHAHAAHA!  :lol:  That's just too funny! By the way, I would love to see All-Star Superman drawn by Steve Rude. Now that guy has talent!!

Yeah, Rude could have pulled it off.  He's not the greatest artist but at least he's a competent one going by Hulk vs Superman.

McGuinnessis is one of the worst "artists" working today, his Superman represents everything that is wrong with DC today.

Sadly he also has a huge fan following.

Go figure  :?

Byrne used to be a great artist and a pathetic writer.

Now, he's a pathetic artist and a pathetic writer, so things have finally balanced out

It's a shame we couldn't have his pencils at the reboot minus his questionable 'creative input'.

All-Star Superman? Well...

WRITERS: Paul Dini, Matt Wagner, Grant Morrison, Mark Waid, Kurt Busiek, Roger Stern, Jerry Ordway, J. Michael Strazcynski, Peter David, Geoff Johns, and Mike Allred.

ARTISTS: Ed McGuinness (I don't care what the naysayers say, he draws a fine Superman in my eyes), Doug Mahnke, Steve Rude, Ed Benes, Mike Wieringo, Alan Davis, Carlos Pacheco, Ron Lim (loved his Superman/Silver Surfer team-up), Paul Pelletier, Kerry Gammill, Tom Grummett, Bob McLeod, Steven Butler (LOVED his Spider-Man art), the Kubert brothers, and Barry Kitson.

Anything goes here, folks.

By the by, I just checked out "JLA: Earth 2" from the library as a foretaste of what the "All-Star" team might give us.  The story's a bit dark for my taste, but it has some very good moments (like when the antimatter universe's Luthor shows up and says, "I needed a name for your world, so I'm calling it Earth-2!"  :lol:  Now we know how Jay Garrick felt!).

But the art?  Yech.  I sincerely hope Frank Quitely's been toiling away at his art lessons in the intervening years...what I saw here was not encouraging.  Buildings and vehicles and technology, fine.  But people? Yech.
