Hate Poll: Byrne vs. Turner

Okay, I don't think I can come up with any more anti-Quesada jokes. I've long since passed the point where the jokes have any bearing on (apparent) reality, anyway. So stepping up to the metaphorical plate is the only man Mr. Quesada wasn't able to beat--John Byrne.

The case against John Byrne: Has a limited repertoire of human faces; bearded; might refer to a Black co-worker or neighbor as "one of the good ones."

The case against Michael Turner: Has an extremely limited repertoire of human bodies; seems to draw the cover to every book being published by Marvel and DC these days; probably not good at maintaining eye contact with certain co-worker, if you know what I mean.

Poll is open until noon EDT/9 am PDT

This one is a no brainer. Michael Turner is actually nice in person.

You're killing me with these polls, Smalls.

I can't tell if you're being ironic anymore

At this point, it's either post-ironic or outright pandering (if there is a meaningful distinction between the two). And I'm genuinely curious who people will pick. I mean, there was so much righteous outrage over that Power Girl cover. Maybe that's a new direction for these things--flavors of the month vs. perennials.
