Who are the are artists like so much you would buy a comic just because they are involved. There are many artists but few stick in our minds for one reason or another. Of the artists who are special to you who do you love to see them illustrate? I personally love the art styles of Ed McGuinness, Jim Lee, Leinil Francis Yu, Mark Brooks, Stefano Caselli, Pat Lee and Joe Madureira to name a few. Sometimes I buy comics I know noting about just because they are the featured artist. If you like something add images and maybe we can help you identify the artist.

Tell us who you can't get enough of and post a pic or 3 so maybe can start following their work.

Leinil Francis Yu
Ed McGuinness

Joe Mad

Jim Lee

Pat Lee

To be honest theres some great artists out there & probably the comic Book world has never been so fortunate to have such a pool to pick from.

To me this question means that if I could pick one artist to draw every comic I read from here on out. And if that washers case I'd pick Jim Lee, Michael Turner or Frank Quitely. Any one of them is great for me
