|Romita Jr is one of Marvel's unsung heroes in a lot of ways. He has worked on a number of great comics, and each time he does, he brings the storytelling skill of his father, and the energy of Jack Kirby into his work. He is one of the few artists who can actually draw a decent fight scene as well as a scene of two people talking in an apartment. |
While the writer is getting all the praise on Amazing Spider-Man, if it were by any artist other than Romita, the emotional impact would be lessened and maybe even deadened. It's always amazing to be that he can draw the Hulk destroying something and make you feel it, and then in another comic have Mary Jane hesitate to pick up a phone and have a different but equal emotional inpact.
