    Great call on Immonen and Coipel, Dragon.

    I would add to that list of current stars Fiona Staples (SAGA). She is outstanding.

    Oh, forgot to mention Madureira. He's one of my favorites during the 90's. Not really into his current work, especially the colorists that accompanies him.

    I bought Battle Chasers solely for the art. I think his current layouts are too busy and i'd rather see him back on his own stuff than Marvel characters.

    I always thought Alan Moore matched artists well to his titles. Gibbons on Watchmen, JH Wiiliams on Promethea, Gene Ha/Zander Cannon on Top 10, Kevin O'Neill on League.

    I don't know her but the artwork looks great. It reminds me a whole lot of Kevin Nowlan.


    This also.

    SAGA is great (SowingSeason will back me up on this).
    However, it is definitely an "adult" book (for some seriously strong sexual content - it can be pretty shocking tbh).

    I don't really put Alex Ross, Bill Sienkiewicz, and Glenn Fabry in the same category. That's more than just regular comic art.
