    I have been getting into comic art recently and discovered that I really like Tim Sale (Tim Sale | Bio) Especially his work in The Long Halloween. So who is everyone else's favorite?

    Seeing as I haven't really opened a comic book since 1993-ish, for me it's a toss up between Jim Lee and Todd MacFarlane. ;)

    Karl Richardson. It's very hard to find anything by him on the web but this is some of the things that I was able to find. He makes everything look incredibly tankish and dangerous.

    At the moment I'm really enjoying JH Williams III's art for the Batwoman series in Detective Comics; the first issue looked absolutely stunning all the way through.

    I'm totally in love with Williams art right now it's got such a strong visual identity and his layouts really remind me of Will Eisner which to me is a good thing plus every panel of his is so magnificent I want to have it tattooed on me!

    My picks
    Dave Cockrum
    Steve Ditko
    Will Eisner
    Jack Kirby
    Alex Ross
    Simon Bisley

    My all time favourite artist is Neal Adams as his work during the 70's on Batman is incredible and I believe it was the greatest period for the character as Batman was pretty much written off at that point due to that damn tv show so they were free to take risks with him.
    Adams redefined the Batman universe visually and Denny O'Neil matched Adams art with his incredibly creative writing and together they introduced a gritty more realistic and slightly Sherlock Homes inspired Batman that's not too far from the one we see in Chris Nolan's Batman movies and the animated series.
    Rarely has such a perfect pairing of artist and writer occured in comics and if it wasn't for Adams and O'Neil's work together Batman probably wouldn't exist today at all and would've become yet another forgotten comics character on the scrapheap.
