I recall he did great work on DC's New Teen Titans and Justice League Of America in the 80s

More painting than standard comic book art but he makes the characters seem so real

Ezquerra did a shitload of work for the British weekly comics back in the 1970s and from memory he created the look of British icon Judge Dredd - So goddamn consistently good and his style just seemd to fit many genres...Scifi - The 2000Ad's adaptation of The Stainless Steel Rat, Strontium Dog --- World War 2 - Major Eazy, Rat Pack in battle comic ---- and Horror - Fiends Of The Eastern Front in 2000AD

Average listal rating (189 ratings) 7.3 IMDB Rating 0
I loved his work on Daredevil and of course the Batman Dark Knight graphic novels he created BUT the guy is just a tad crazy - too much obsession with violence and making everything look noir-ish

Average listal rating (10 ratings) 7.9 IMDB Rating 0
Really solid artist whose work has an earthy quality - Of course now famous for Watchmen but before that he was ubiquitous in the Brit comic books

I love this guys macabre drawings used greatly in Nemesis The Warlocks series and superhero satire Marshall Law. Oh and he drew The League Of Extraordinary Gentlemen series

There's something a bit otherworldly about his work which is both detailled and abstarct at the same time - absolutely great work on Judge Dredd

3 things I recall about Byrnes work

1 - he liked total creative control so it was not unusual to see everything creidtted to him

2 - he dominated 1980s Marvel comics with stints on X Men and The Fantastic Four

3 - the characters looked the same as there wasnt much facial variation...still a great artist though

Average listal rating (10 ratings) 8.9 IMDB Rating 0
Great surreal work on Dr Strange and wonderfully energetic stuff on Spiderman

Kirby is almost God-like in the comic book industry

He worked like a donkey churning out hundreds of titles but i an interview I recently saw he came across as a decent guy

I just loved the power he gave stories - sometimes you could almost feel the punches the characters threw

An Italian artist who worked for British comics...though he did cover different genres imho he excelled at surreal scifi/fantasy which peaked in the 2000AD series Ace Trucking

A really solid artist and who can really match his work on The Incredible Hulk - 10 years!!!



This is a weird choice but I was a huge fan of Marvel's short lived WW2 super hero series The Invaders...I used to argue with a friend at the time that Robbins art was perfect for the series - something brilliantly primitive at complete odds to the artists at the time with clean precise art





self explanatory really - NO real order as they are all GREAT imho
