Who is your favourite comic book artist or writer (if you have one)?

#2 Posted by Sharkbite (293 posts) - - Show Bio

My favorite writer is hands down Christos Gage. They don't give him much of the big name books, but he takes all these underdog titles and turns them into slam dunk hits.

Artist: Alex Ross

Writer: Not sure.

My favorite writer is Grant Morrison. The dude is a mad genius and he's incredibly creative. He's unparalleled by any of the writers working in today's industry. My favorite artist would have to be Ryan Ottley. He gives this great three-dimensionality to his work and boy, does he know how to make action and gore look great. His art is like a milkshake for the eyes.

Favorite Writer: Grant Morrison

Great concepts and originality, shows a real love and understanding of the art-form, and also wrote many of my favorite comics (All-Star Supes, JLA). As My Chemical Romance's Gerard Way puts it, "Morrison has more ideas in his pinky than most people do in their lifetime."

Favorite Artist: Bryan Hitch

No other artist (except perhaps Ross) embodies photo-realism as well as this guy. While his recent work has taken a downturn, his pencils from Authority, JLA, and Ultimates are some of the best in superhero comics. He brings a sense of verisimilitude to every panel, and despite the realism of his work, his pencils always have an action-packed dynamism to them. Also, the eight page spread from the Ultimates 2 more or less cements Hitch's place in the comic artist hall of fame.

Incredible.

Grant Morrison is my favourite writer by a field, and my personal idol. I do not have enough positive things to say about the guy.

Favorite writer without a doubt has to be Mark Waid, love that guy's work. My first comicbook was Birthright, then Kingdom Come and I've never looked back.

Favorite artist is becoming Kenny Rocafort, love his run on Superman.

Big fan of Alan Moore and Geoff Johns.

As for artist...hmmm...I quite like the work on the n52 from Ivan Reis and Brian Buccellato.

Greg pak and Peter Daivid. It's a tie.

Rob Liefeld for writing and art. He's a rare double threat in comics.

My favorite artist is Chris Bachalo, I know many people hate his art but for me i find his art style unique but not ugly.

when it comes to writer, I like Geoff Johns and probably Brian Michael Bendis.

#17 Posted by Cap10nate (2741 posts) - - Show Bio

Writer - Brubaker and Busiek.

I love the noir/crime/espionage stories that Brubaker writes and his run on Captain America/Winter Soldier, is probably my favorite of all time. Really enjoy his creator owned work as well. Busiek is my favorite Superhero writer with his Avengers run. Kang Dynasty, Ultron Unlimited, and Avengers Forever are three of my top five favorite Avengers stories of all time.

Artist - Steve Epting and Brian Hitch

I prefer art that looks as realistic as possible and these two are my favorite.

Going by long-runs on books (and that I read mostly DC) --- because we could be here all day if we break it down issue by issue -- I'd say my favorite writer is Geoff Johns. With things like JSA (v2 & the beginning of v3), Green Lantern, and Teen Titans, I think he really captures the classical heroic themes. (For shorter runs, Grant Morrison's JLA & Jeph Loeb's Superman/Batman are some of my all-time favorites).

Artist....I'd have to say Jim Lee, but I can't really say I've gone over them all and compared & contrasted. To echo the 4th post, I also have been loving Ryan Ottley's art in Invincible.

Stan Lee and all of his disciples from the 1970's up until 2000.

The Artist would be Jim Lee plus others.

@Superguy1591: Waid doesn't get enough credit, IMHO. I think people know he's good, but he's really much better than that. I was disappointed that his line at the Baltimore Comic Con wasn't as long as Scotty Snyder's. (And I love Snyder as well.) I mean, I was kinda glad also, because it made getting his autograph easier. I assume you're reading Daredevil and Indestructible Hulk? Have read Irredeemable and Incorruptible? Empire? His old Flash stories? Everything the guy does (that I've read) is anywhere from "Very Good" to "Phenomenal"

Dan Slott. I've really enjoyed Slott's run on Spider-man. I don't mind Dying Wish and actually enjoy SS very much.
