Comic Book Artist: Mike Wieringo

This is one of my semi-regular posts about comic book artists whose work I enjoy, as I look at their work history and post some examples of their work. Today’s post is about a favourite artist who will unfortunately no longer produce any more of his great art. It was a great shock and loss when Mike Wieringo passed away at the age of 44. He was taken from the world too soon and his delightful art is still missed. Like most people, I first saw his artwork on The Flash in 1993–1994, working with Mark Waid for the first time […]

Comic Book Artist: Leinil Francis Yu

I haven’t done one of these posts – a collection of images and overviews of comic book artists I enjoy – for a long time now, but they seem to the source of many visits to this blog according to Google Analytics (although it’s mostly to download the images of comic book art; I guess I make it easy to find them with Google Image search, particularly the Chris Bachalo post I did). However, that is not the reason for me returning to this theme – with these posts, I’m still trying to find a way to talk about the […]

Writer Top Five: Greg Rucka

I’m not sure where I stole this idea from but it seemed a nice adjunct to my posts about comic book artists I like, so I thought I’d go through the list of writers who have the most comics in my collection (from this post), starting with writers who were just outside of the Top Ten, giving a list of my favourite Top Five works by that writer. First up: Greg Rucka. It was the Eisner award-winning Whiteout that brought Rucka to the attention of the comic book industry (although he was a successful novelist before that). Since then, Rucka has […]

Goal Achieved. What Next?

I was going to do another in my series of Comic Book Artists, where I post some great images sourced from the web from artists whose work I admire and talk about their career and try to discuss what I like about their work. However, Blogger is having some issues with Image Uploads today, so that shall have to wait. It was then that it hit me – I had succeeded in my promise to myself of blogging about all of the comics I’ve bought, the films I’ve seen, the library books and graphic novels I’ve read, the DVDs and […]

Creator with most comics in my collection

This might be a little nerdy; it’s hard to tell when one is so close to it. But I like cataloguing my comic book collection. I like having the list, including author, artist(s), company, imprint. It might be a bit sad, but I don’t care. It means that I can examine my collection and revel in its numbers and order. And, no, I’m not an accountant. It also means that I can provide a countdown of the creators responsible for the greatest number of comics in my collection. I tend to be story based, so the main people are going […]
