My three favourites are:
Chris Bachalo





Skottie Young




Joe Madureira





I love artists who use a more gestural, expressive line. It is something I have been working really hard at incorporating into my own work.

I can't resist anything by Alex Ross, George Perez or Frank Quitely. Difficult to narrow it down to one. OK then. Frank Quitely.

There is something I really like about John Byrne's style.

My favorite is Neal Adams. I also really dig Mike Grell and pretty much anybody else showing a lot of Neal Adams influence.

I like a lot of different styles but Neal Adams is my favorite.

There are alot of different people I like.
Jim Lee and Marc Silvestri are probably my favorites.Then there is Norm Breyfogle,Stephen Platt,David Finch,Michael Broussard,Kenneth Rocafort,
Alex Ross,Todd Mcfarlane,I must admit that I also like Liefeld's work on New Mutants and X-force anything that he has done since is utter garbage.Tony Daniel's work on The Tenth and his current work on Batman is great but his work on X-Force was horrible,Randy Queen,Ian Churchill, Steve McNiven's current stuff is good but his early work was less than stellar,John Cassady,Butch Guice is a long time fav of mine,Michael Turner
I'm also really horrible for not knowing who draws certain titles like for example I love the style that DC comics were drawn in the 80's but I don't know who all the artists were.I know Byrne drew Superman but I don't know who drew Green Lantern,Booster Gold,Blue Beetle,Captain Atom but they all had the same style to them.

I can't stand "art" (especially in comics etc) that needs to be interpreted. I don't want to spend 10 minutes looking at panel trying to figure out what the hell I'm suppposed to be looking at... Keith Giffens 'work' in the Trencher books was atrocious.

This is even tougher than choosing writers. My top 10, in no particular order:
Will Eisner
Skottie Young
Gilbert Hernandez
Barry Windsor-Smith
Mike Wieringo
Paul Rivoche
John Byrne
Terry Austin
Steve Ditko
Jack Kirby
Perhaps it would be easier to make selections according to genres; I tend to be rather eclectic.

His work in the Halo Graphic Novel is the best work of his I've personally come across.

John Romita

Mike Zeck

Hugh Haynes

Michael Golden

Tim Bradstreet

I always thought they made the Punisher look the best.
