The New Mutants: War Children cover

Comic Book Artist: Bill Sienkiewicz

This is next in the list of my favourite comic book artists, which started with Stan Sakai. The artist is different from the previous as well as the remaining people on the list: Bill Sienkiewicz, the man whose art style shook the mainstream comic book industry and showed what could be done within the confines of a superhero story. Sienkiewicz…

Usagi Yojimbo 25th anniversary poster by Stan Sakai

Comic Book Artist: Stan Sakai

As a fan of comic books, I am a fan of comic book art and artists, which is why I do a blog post series about the work of comic book artists I’ve enjoyed. At time of writing, I’ve talked about 18 comic book artists; however, as the pandemic continues and has an impact on the things we do and…

Absolute Art by Adam Hughes

Comic Book Artist: Adam Hughes

Time for a semi-regular post in my series about comic book artists whose work I enjoy, a little bit about their career and my intersections with that career. Today: Adam Hughes, an artist known for his beautiful women but he has a range that is so much more, although he doesn’t do nearly enough interior work now that he is…

Arrowsmith #4 cover by Carlos Pacheco

Comic Book Artist: Carlos Pacheco

My latest comic book artist post – where I talk about a comic book artist whose work I like and post some of their art – is about Carlos Pacheco, the superstar Spanish artist who first arrived on the scene in 1994 and was an instant smash and who has been at the top of the comic book artist leagues…

Comic Book Artist: Kevin Maguire

It’s been a while since I last did one of these (about Dale Keown, back in 2015), so a recap: I talk about a comic book artist whose work I have enjoyed, give a brief overview of their career and where I’ve enjoyed the work, and post a lot of art. Kevin Maguire is an artist who has been working…

Hulk transformation masterpiece

Comic Book Artists: Dale Keown

This series of posts is about comic book artists whose work I like. The normal pattern is that I talk about the artist’s career and mention when I started enjoying the work and include various images by the artist. However, in this case, the text aspect will be a little lighter than normal because, unfortunately, there isn’t a huge amount…

The Dragon: Blood & Guts cover

Comic Book Artist: Jason Pearson

I first saw Jason Pearson’s art back in the early 1990s. A chap with good taste had recommended the ‘Five Years Later’ Legion of Super-Heroes run, masterminded by Keith Giffen; I was unaware of the controversy surrounding the book at the time, but I thoroughly enjoyed the approach taken with the book (influenced, to my mind, by Watchmen). There were…

The Flash: Race Against Time TP cover

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…

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…

Batman heroes by Jim Lee

Comic Book Artist: Jim Lee

I don’t know if it’s just my personal experience, or if it’s due to the fact that I grew up reading the X-Men, but Jim Lee is one of the defining superhero artists in comic books. His style instigated a host of imitators because it was the apotheosis of the slick and muscular mainstream comic book art of the 1990s.…
