Perhaps this should be moved out of the marketplace section?

Duh!!

 

I hate getting old.  Yes, if at all possible I intended to post in the OA general forum not the Marketplace.  I suppose if it doesn't get moved I could just repost the question.

Having all of 3 modern comics in my collection, I am woefully lacking in knowledge as regards modern day comic artists so I was wondering if there is/are standout favs amongst boardees here??

I don't really read many modern books anymore (I'll pick up a trade here and there if someone gives me a recommendation)...I was always partial to Eduardo Risso (100 Bullets).  Not sure if he's currently on any titles or not.  I used to own quite a few pages by him.  Still have a few of them.

I can recommend taking a look at the artists repped by Felix Lu. His site Felix Comic Art features “modern day” artists and some of the more talented ones. There are quite a few good artists repped by others or on their own also.

Of course perusing the comic shelf at ye ole local comic store is the best way to put your eyes on something you might fancy.

I like Dustin Nguyen's style, but I couldn't say whether he's in high demand though (compared to artists like McFarlane, Jim Lee, etc..).  He's just a personal fav.  Amanda Connor's art is fun as well, especially her Power Girl stuff.

So, looking at my collection Coipel wins by a lot. He does mostly covers now it seems, but he did do a Batman story and Magic Order lately.

Segovia! Hellions was a fun read recently.

I also like McNiven, McGuinness, Cassaday, Maleev, Ribic, Bradshaw, Garbett, Scalera, Checchetto, Tan, Asrar, Jacinto.

And of course, check out Silver Surfer Black by Tradd Moore.

I highly recommend checking out European artists. 2dgalleries.com is a goldmine of undiscovered talent (to my untrained American eye). I look at the art Olivier LeDroit is doing for Requiem, look at the size of the pages, and wonder how it is even possible.

Here are a few for now:

Brian K Vaughan and Tony Harris: Ex Machina. A superhero finds himself mayor of NYC. It's part Rocketeer, part The West Wing.

Jonathan Hickman and Nick Pitarra: The Manhattan Projects. A loopy alternate history in which scientists like Einstein, Fermi, and Oppenheimer pursued cross-dimensional technology and must contend with alternate versions of themselves.

Batwoman: Greg Rucka and J.H. Williams III

Really, anything by JHWIII is great; he's worked with Alan Moore, Grant Morrison, and more. His layouts are second to none.

Grant Morrison and Frank Quitely: All-Star Superman. Quitely's distinctive faces are a bit shocking at first, but again his layouts and attention to detail always impress.

Alan Moore and Gene Ha: Top Ten - The Forty Niners: Art recalls Alex Ross's photorealism. Story is about super-powered police fighting vampires.

Jeremy Bastian: Cursed Pirate Girl. Beautiful to read/see. Good luck finding originals to buy!

Manhattan Projects is a gem.  Loved that series.

Good call. :applause:

 

Also, Humanoids Press do some nice hardback editions in English of European material as well. The art is often very strong.
