    If I had proofread/edited my post before posting, I would have caught those typos. Going back to fix now.

    Some more choices for Favorite Artwork would be...

    Gene Colan

    Jae Lee
    (The majority won't agree, but I enjoyed the moody/dark fantasy he brought to Namor)







    Alan Davis
    (Artist Extraordinaire yet to be surpassed, IMHO)

    Favorite artists who haven't been mentioned...

    Bernard Krigstein
    Fantagraphics did excellent collections of his work, as well as a solid biography. He might just be the most impressive EC artist. The pinnacle is "The Master Race," which dealt with the atrocities of the Holocaust in the 1950s

    Steve Dillon
    Mentioned in WestphillyPunisher's sig, but not elsewhere in the thread. Preacher was astounding. He just had a clean, consistent style, but could also draw grotesques very well.

    Sergio Aragonés
    Just an astounding cartoonist. No one does funny comics better, adding great background details to the Groo fantasy stories, while also parodying pretty much everything in Mad Magazine and various one-shots.
    Sincerely,
    Thomas Mets

    Howard Chaykin's American Flagg

    Woefully underappreciated, yet it deserves to be one of the high marks of the eighties. The mix of sex, politics, and near-futuristic science-fiction was extraordinary and the first twelve issues need to be placed on the same level as Watchmen, Sandman, and Dark Knight Returns.

    Love and Rockets by Los Bros Hernandez


    The mix of street level drama, nerd culture, progressive sexuality, and the extraordinary percentage of female characters makes L&R one of my favorites.

    I will just focus on minis now.

    Mini: Cloak and Dagger, Nightcrawler Icons Mini. The Earth X Trilogy (old one), Infinity Gauntlet and War (not Crusade though), Deathshead II... I would mention Secret Wars but that hasn't reread well too much with me. If I want to finally be honest.

    In agreement with you about OG Armor Wars, it certainly had its fair share of choice moments (IMHO):







    But no matter what, the 1st run Michelinie/Layton had with JRJR will always be my favorite!

    In my mind, he's one of the best artists around, having become famous drawing Betty and Veronica for decades, and this is one of my all time favorite covers with Betty wearing jeans so inhumanly tight, they look almost spray painted on! Awesome!

    That was one of my favorite X-Men storylines as well. I also loved the follow-up story in X-Men/Alpha Flight #1-2. The scene where Cyclops confronts Loki always sent chills up my spine.
