    Terrible choice of artists in the poll. That Michael Turner picture in particular shows he couldn't draw Darkseid - he's given him the same build he gave every superhero.

    For me the prize goes to Walter Simonson, but I think John Byrne did a good job and Howard Porter's rendition in JLA: Rock of Ages was great (despite Porter's shortcomings)

    his waist yeah could have been a little less conpacted, however i LOVE how turner drew darkseids face/head, the sharp edges of turners style really lent it to the character facially.
    and he also managed to make the thigh ending boots look cool, something i HATE about most other artist representations of the character. and regardless of his problems with the build, i feel like he still really managed to give the character a sense of Mass and power to his form. epic IMO

    I enjoy plenty of other artists. But who can compare to Kirby when it comes to Fourth World? Definitely none of the people you listed. If I had to choose runners up, they would be Simonson and Giffen. But still, it's like picking "Best Beatles cover band" or something. What is the point?

    Not having Jack Kirby included in the poll is plain dumb

    Kirby, then Simonson. All others are imposters.

    I sure do love that Titans X Men team up.... I really loved the Darkseid that J.G Jones and Mahnke had for Final Crisis, but Kirby is number one in my book. I think the Giffen one might be top five as well storywise, but all these scans look great.

    I like Simonson's interpretation most.

    Buried Alien (The Fastest Post Alive!)
    The comic book industry/medium is paradoxically the most fragile and most resilient thing in the world. Its noisiest critics insist every day that every cough, sputter, or dirty look threatens to destroy it, but it has survived every prediction of its demise for nearly eight decades.
