    There are lots of artists whose work I admire.
    That criteria alone do not narrow the choice down for me.
    However, as far as covers go, one Bob Larkin work does check all the boxes.

    I have several artists whose art I enjoy greatly but I don't have a favourite artist per se.
    Here's a cover I love by ChrisCross.

    Like many, it's difficult to pick a favorite artist for myself as there are instances when I prefer one to another, but books by Howard Chaykin always seems to get my money. I wanted so much to go full on Chaykin and post the removed cover for Divided States of Hysteria as being pretty symbolic of Chaykin's style, but it doesn't appear to have ever appeared on anything. So, I'm going mainstream and some Lantern Love.

    My taste in comic art is like my taste in music, I like what I like. However Alex Ross does have many impressive covers.

    To differentiate a bit. Dale Keown, who would be the artist for the Smart Hulk storyline, which I always enjoyed.

    I think restorative nostalgia is the number one issue with comic book fans.
    A fine distinction between two types of Nostalgia:

    Reflective Nostalgia allows us to savor our memories but accepts that they are in the past
    Restorative Nostalgia pushes back against the here and now, keeping us stuck trying to relive our glory days.

Fellini famously memorialized this in his 1960 film La Dolce Vita, which includes a photographer character named Paparazzo...purported to be the origin of the word "paparazzi" (plural for paparazzo).

    Same here!

    Great covers posted here by my favorites (plural!) Carl Barks, Barry Smith, and many more. It will be tough to choose, not to mention to even come up with my own selection! Maybe I should just go with a placeholder

    If this were asked 25 years ago, wonder how many would be Liefeld or McFarlane.
