Frank Cho.

If you don't know his Liberty Meadows comic strip, you should!

MIlton Caniff is probably my all time favorite just because of his introduction of realism to the comic strip.

But I also love Winsor McKay, Roy Crane, Chester Gould, Al Capp, Alex Raymond and Hal Foster.

George Herriman is another great but he was tough sledding for me.

Right-o, I love Sergio Aragones work, not just for MAD magazine, but mostly for Groo the Wanderer and his other Groo comics which is where i first saw his stuff.

I used to read lots of comics as a kid in the 80's and early 90's, and worked in a comic shop for a while also when i was a teenager, and used to chat to John Ridgway who was a top chap full of stories, who drew for 2000AD, Hellblazer, and Babylon 5.

i admire the one-panel cartoonists like Gary Larsson, and Matt Pritchard, and the 3 and 4 panel glories of Bill Watterson, the genius.

I prefer more goofy silliness, than anything else it appears.

Mort Drucker,especially his characters from t.v. and movies satirized in MAD.
Dave Berg was pretty good also.

Very simple:

Ernie Chan. He was artist for the best Batman stories to date (and the way things are going that might read the best stories ever). His drawing style evoked all those things I like about the great 70's crime and blaxploitation films. The feeling of the scenery as can be seen in "Fuzz" with Burt Reynolds:

Jose Garcia Lopez: He drew the most beautiful Batmans ever:

John Romita: No explanation needed:

Ross Andru: the same as for Ernie Chan but now for Spiderman which he drew beautifully:

Jim Mooney: He drew a bit naively which really strikes chord with me.


Don Heck: He drew the stories of Marvel's golden age: the 60's; Iron Man, The avengers.


Bill Everett: His drawings for the 1966 Hulk story where the Hulk faces the Mole man have a very special place.

Kind regards.

Nice pictures there.

I read loads of comics growing up, some of my faves were:

Jim Aparo, Neal Adams, Alan Davis, Brian Bolland for Batman

Joe Kubert's Sgt. Rock

Keith Giffen's Heckler, Ambush Bug, Legion of Super Heroes

Bart Sears' Justice League Europe

Mark Bright's Green Lantern

Curt Swan's Aquaman

CAM KENNEDY'S Rogue Trooper is immense, as was his Fighting Mann, and Star Wars stuff.

Ah there are loads.

Jose Garcia Lopez: He drew the most beautiful Batmans ever:

I met Jose Garcia Lopez at a convention once. Super, super nice guy, very easy going and nice to talk to.

I was walking along with a friend (who had the money to commission a beautiful full-page picture of Batman holding the Joker over the side of a church in the rain) when another artist (I want to say Jim Valentino?) called us over...

"IS THAT A GARCIA LOPEZ?!"
"Yes"
"Can I see it?!"

He stared at the thing for about 2 minutes and then said "Jesus, I have to work on my shadows..."

Lin Streeter and Eugene Hughes. They illustrated pre-code horror comics from the 40s.

Joe Kubert.



I also like Milton Caniff and Bill Mauldin. The two seem equally important when I think of WWII-era artists.

When i was in my teens i would always show my stuff to John Ridgway who would offer good advice. I always remember him saying i was great at drawing faces - which is a nice way of saying i wasn't much good at drawing anything else!

he nevre saw me draw the dole, though.

Cheers Zelig! I love the line work of Kubert. Brilliant cover.

Kubert's a lifelong favorite of mine. It's a shame that he cut back on his interior artwork after the 1960s, as he formed his art school and pretty much stuck to illustrating the covers covers for DC's "Battle Books." Thankfully, DC has republished the classic Kanigher/Kubert Sgt. Rock books chronologically in their excellent "DC Archives" series. Volume 3 was released in July, 2005. I eagerly await Vol 4.

Talking of which I've always admired the work of his sons Andy and Adam, particularly Adam's short run on The Incredible Hulk. Dale Keown also did great work on the same title which was going through a golden period under the excellent writing of Peter David.

Good call on Ernie Chan, Disco Stu. a fine artist although I prefered his work as an inker, particularly on John Buscema's excellent pencils on Conan The Barbarian, the same goes for the late great Alfredo Alcala.

p.s. This thread brings back a sad memory, the late H Rocco aka Guy M Tucker truly knew his artists and writers and had incredible in depth knowledge on subjects like this and even instigated a thread akin to this many many moons ago that's now irretrievable.

Gone but not forgotten.

Yes, they were very good too - i remember their Batman/Predator 3 issue effort particularly. Good show - i liked Gary Frank's Hulk meself.
