My favorite comic artists part 1 – the All-Time Faves

I’m thinking about breaking this list into two parts: my all-time favorites, and the new artists that have caught my eye. And I’m not ranking them, that would be too hard to do. I’m also going to mention the book I enjoyed them most on, which may or may not be their most popular book. But fuck it, I like what I like, all right?

The all-timers:

1) Steve Dillon. For Preacher alone. I enjoyed his Punisher work, but his art was much better suited to the story that Preacher told.

2) Frank Quitely. For The Authority. And maybe We3 as a close second.
