    Although I started out as a Marvel fanboy when I began reading comics as a kid, Image comics opened very shortly thereafter and became pretty much my gold standard. Pretty much anyone who worked for Image in the mid/late 90's is on my list - Jim Lee, Jae Lee, Silvestri, Texeira, McFarlane, Keown, Larsen, Liefeld.

    Although I'm not a big reader of golden and silver age comics, the art of some of the early comic book pioneers like Ditko, Adams and Kirby is absolutely brilliant.

    The usual suspects but silvestri was the artist i was trying to emulate back in hs. During college its all about heavy metal. Bahgawd! So many unknown talents!

    Richard Corben is a goat cover artist.

    nice. that reminds me of seth fisher who probably used Moebius as an influence. it's a shame seth fisher actually died really young accidentally falling off a balcony in japan.

    Todd McFarlane, I really enjoyed his work for Marvel. Spawn, when it debuted, was a revolutionary comic art to me when I was a kid. Loved the Spawn comics, still have the comic cards as well. Just great overall artwork.

    Excellent addition. Moebius was great.

    You know who was great in the 90s, but has practically disappeared: Whilce Portacio. He had a great run on X-Men and X-Factor in the 90s.

    He had a run on Stormwatch that was supposed to be about normal humans fighting against superheroes. I bought a few issues, this was probably around a decade ago. The writer was such a hack.

    There are just far too many Liefield similarities to ignore.

    Not really. Come on. They're still in the realm of proper proportions & perspectives.

    Just the lack of feet. Check out his work, his 90s stuff is very kinetic.

    No feet, mouths wide open, fucked up claw hands, gigantic icey cod piece, overstating the vaginal area, unrealistic feminine proportions, lines indicating flying........Just missing pouches. If you put Liefields name down instead, we'd be none the wiser.

    I like the lack of Jae Lee from most people's lists , not a fan of his style.
