It seems fashionable in some parts to blast Byrne now. But I agree his work is still decent and I have not seen a significant drop in the quality of the art. I'll give it a try.
I admit I am biased but there is nothing I like about Byrne any more. His art is not the worst out there but it hasn't changed at all in since the 80's. In some cases it has been bad. His run on WW v2 was horrid. He even gave up drawing backgrounds in many panels. While I don't puke at the sight of his art like I do with Liefeld's I would much rather look at almost anything else. Granted there are lots of artists that didn't change their style much or at all over the years they were in work at least they differentiated facial features and didn't have phases where they got lazy and left out backgrounds.
Sorry, like I say I am biased. Byrne turned me against him a long time ago and it has stuck. I don't touch a thing he does now.
