is completely derivative of this
There are plenty of examples of male characters fitting the mold as well, pretty much everything that wasn't painted. You're comparing a painting to an ink drawing to make your point. Well, I think a point was made by that for sure, you have to look to a completely different medium to find work that isn't a clone of Liefeld.
No one is off the list, i know he has some problems, all I was saying is that turner being on the same level as liefeild is one of the most absurd things I've ever heard. To me it's like if someone claimed Oliver coipel was no better than Greg land.
Other than the thinness of his women, I can not see any true problems with his work. End of story

here is some other cap images by turner
it might be derivative of it, that does not mean, it is not vastly better drawn and illustrated than liefelds, which it is.
i will conceed they have the same problems with waist, that does not mean they are equal in badness

if you wanna compare someone to liefeld why not hamberto ramos?
look at this dreck
and dont give me that "its his style' crap people defend him with, the exact same could be said of turner. while liefeld its has nothing to do with style and more to do with incompetence.
It's not 'simply due to him being Romita'.
And NOBODY has insulted Bermejo. Certainly not to the degree that you just insulted Romita. If he's respected it's because of the quality of his work, not his name.
Also, in terms of art criticism, you have no idea what you're talking about.
I know that sounds harsh, but seriously, there's a lot more going on in art than "Do I like this picture?" - which seems to be the level that you're at. There's nothing wrong with that. Far be it from me to poop on your parade. If you're a big Michael Turner fan, that's cool. I have no problem with people liking stuff that I don't. You should read what makes you happy, and if that's Michael Turner, then more power to you.
But you sound like you're very young, and honestly, you don't know what you're talking about for the most part, and when people disagree with you, you have an annoying tendency to take it very seriously and get aggressive, as though you're being personally attacked.

Bermejo does mostly one and done Graphic novels which allows him to take a lot more time to do things because there is not a strict deadline compared to monthly serialized comics.
If it wasn't for someone like Romita Senoir who brought a level of realism to comics that wasn't being used at the time Bermejo's art might look a lot different.
I think Turner would have been better served doing interiors his covers aren't usually that great compared to a lot of the top line people.
