I'm not a big fan of some but you have all the legends I can think of.

Good list, but there are some I would not have included, and some I would have added.   
 
Carmine Infantino, Curt Swan,  and Grant Morrison to name a few.

@Liberty: 
Who do you find undeserving?

Where is Alan Moore? If frank miller is there Moore should be.  Moore is the man that inspired the mature read.  BTW Stan Lee is a hack, has cool ideas, but the artists embellish and later writers make the ideas better.

@Silkcuts: 
No. Moore is already there at #12.

May I suggest H.J. Ward? (The pulp guy.)
 
He only did one comics book cover that I know of, but it was huge! He did the first painting ever of Superman.

This particular painting hung in the main office of DC comics for several decades. I will soon add Ward.

Putting my name on this list is just preposterous, Turok. You only did it because I letterered one lousy issue of CEREBUS. Tsk, tsk, tsk!

@Roxanne Starr: 
You are far too modest. You also worked on many of the Ultraverse books I loved, as well as the Big Book of...series and others, I know this list is very large now but if you thumb through it, you will see many of the Creators like Roxanne Starr are from the Modern Era. You Stay! lol!

You really need to join Silkcuts and me on the comment thread for his review of BIG NUMBERS #2. There's a lot more action over there right now. :D

I think Grant Morrison deserves a spot on this list, but other than that small qualm, great list.

Good to see Jerry Robinson---but if you add Robinson....
Then where is Sheldon Moldoff?  "Ghost artist" to Bob Kane!  Creator of Poison Ivy, Mr. Freeze, Matt Hagen, Batgirl, Batwoman----Come on!

  This is, by far, the best list on the vine I can think of.

You've got the wrong Michael Uslan listed, Michael J. Uslan is some guy who wrote 3 issues of a recent Spirit series. Michael E. Uslan is the legend you're looking for.

Sorry if I missed these guys, but they definitely should be on this list

Walt Simonson

Art Adams

George Perez

John Bolton (if you haven't read the backup stories in classic x-men, they are some of the best x-men stories ever told)

Marc Silvestri
