    Happy Birthday to Modern Master Extraordinair, ALAN DAVIS!!!




    For more than thirty years, Alan Davis has been a vital creative force in the comic book industry.
    From his Eagle Award-winning artwork in British comics to his fan-favorite work in
    Detective, Justice League: The Nail, Fantastic Four, The Avengers and The X-Men, Alan has done it all.

    Not only is he an Eisner Award-winning artist and an exceptional writer, he is, more importantly, a master storyteller.
    It is the special attention he gives to the craft of storytelling that separates Alan's
    work from other great artists - that, and the firm belief that comics should be FUN!

    If there is one thing that anyone who reads any Alan Davis story will come away with, it is a SMILE!

    Alan Davis is like my ideal superhero artist. He’s got Kevin Maguire’s facial expressions and body language, John Byrne/Neal Adams classical superheroic physiques, Gil Kane’s fantastic sense of kinetic motion and physical movements, and Dave Gibbons’ panel-to-panel storytelling ability. Pair him up with Mark Farmer or Paul Neary, you got a great lookin’ comic.

    The fact that he's still doing strong work today points to his mastery over fast fads and current trends.

    My first comic ever from 28 years ago had Alan as an artist drawing Batman, Robin, Joker, Jason and Catwoman. Still haven't recovered from it

    His run on Excalibur with Chris Claremont is some of the best looking comic art I've ever seen. Possibly the best.

    I loved that book so much.

    His renditions of the comicbook characters Warbird, Wanda and Amora the Enchantress are, to me, MARVELOUS!
