RULES UPDATE! 

I'll list an artist and everyone who wants to join in can do so! When I list an artist, you have 24 hours to post an image before we move on to the next one. 

It doesn't matter if you don't know their work; just Google the artist and choose an image of the one you like most, and add it into this thread. Try not to repeat images someone else has posted.

We still haven't had a reply for John Bolton. Who wants to post one?

I've never heard of him, but he does seem to have done alot of weird stuff.

 

 

 

 

Let's have another one, then!

He drew the earlier new back-up strips in Classic X-Men in the 80s, and had before that worked in British comics. Some (although not me as it happens) may have seen his "Father Shandor" instalments in the first three issues of Warrior, which were reprinted from earlier publications with stories based around Hammer movies.

I know Bolton from several Vertigo projects. Here's the cover image from The Furies, one of the two Sandman spin offs he illustrated that were written by Mike Carey:

I actually followed the earlier Charlton series. I picked this cover because it show Michael Mauser.

My favorite Joe Staton work is on E-Man and Michael Mauser loved that series. E-Man had a run before that, under a different publisher, and some sporadic runs since then, under other publishers, but I loved that one. 

Since I'm not the only one who might not know a particular artist, I'll bite. Ready for an assignment.

Richard, you get Mike Allred.

Ready for another one!

LETS CHANGE THE FORMAT ON THIS ... from now on I give an artist and anyone who wants to can post a favorite image!

The next artist for the spotlight is ... Bob Layton!

He draws a good Iron Man. I thought this particular image was cool.

I've seen a few issues of the earlier Charlton series. I liked the First series better because it parodied several of the then-hot comics on the stands, such as Elfquest.  I remember the pitch-perfect spoof it did of the Chris Claremont/John Byrne Uncanny X-Men, right down to misplaced windy, overwrought captions that told you what you saw in the previous panel. 

Plus, I liked Michael Mauser, too. He had a backup solo series in the book, and a three-issue spinoff title, The P.I.s, where he teamed up with Ms. Tree!

This gives me an opportunity to say that the means by which Tony escapes the dilemma on the cover would not work. Spoiler warning. In the comic, Tony is able to dress as Iron Man while he falls. But he and the case with the suit have different terminal velocities and aerodynamic properties, so they would not have fallen at the same speed, so he would not have been able to park the case in the air next to him as he dressed.
