    Default Keith Griffen's artistic styles

    Keith Griffen is a brilliant and underated artisat who seemed to undergo a maturity and style change which upset some. The theory was that he was influenced by José Antonio Muñoz, but if Griffen was influenced by Munoz, then more so was Frank Miller



    Personally, I am a fan of the style. The Ambush Bug stuff is pure cartooning genius

    I love Giffen's art from that period. IMO, he peaked on that Dr. Fate miniseries which is just beautiful.

    The Munoz thing is undeniable though. It wouldn't surprise me if Frank Miller has some Munoz influence as well, but he's never aped him as closely as Giffen did.

    Did Munez ever have anything to say about it?

    I don't know - but a lot of other people did.

    I love his darker stuff, but if he had kept up with this cleaner style, it might've been my favorite:

    I didn't care much when he was going directly with ink, it looked awful. Infanticide and Trencher.
