    Not necessarily the best, but that misty thread got me all nostalgic for 2000ad.

    Historically, it's gotta be Nick Cardy. Also, Carmine Infantino, when he was DC's Art Director. Also, Jack Kirby but I guess he's no longer an option. (*sniff*)

    No one's mentioned Brendan McCarthy yet.

    There are a lot of contributors to this site who could be heading the list but it seemed a bit nepotistic (is that a real word?)

    I like quite a few of Rob Liefeld's covers. His stuff is memorable, and Leifeld is going to have the last laugh in a few decades when his originals become hugely collectible because of the notoriety he gained during his career.

    @greasemonkey...

    i have a dread feeling you're right. I think Transformer's director
    Michael "blow the bloody place up " Bay is also going to get a reappraisal.


    Also thanks for the new artist william joseph!
    Sergio Toppi.. im googling now!

    @Arklight

    You can throw Michael Turner in there too. Like Liefeld he's completely shite at anatomy, but he has a sense of style and colour that's going to see his stuff becoming prized as collectibles in thirty or forty years' time.

    Awful as it is, how can anyone not like this? -

    That Prado cover is fucking excellent.

    @Greasemonkey--I love how he has about forty-five muscles in his upper arm alone. It's a great cover though.

    As for me:
    Mike Mignola
    Tony Harris
    Daryl Mandryk
    Ashley Wood
    Guy Davis

    Mandryk's only done about five covers that I know of, but they're amazing, every one.

    And I can't help but love Ashley Wood's batshit oil paintings.

    @Greasemonkey: just like Liefeld, Michael Turner was a penciller, so you can't hold him responsible for the colors of his covers, only for the linework... The bigger comics publishers manage to churn a lot of comics with bad cover art that's made palatable by colorists!

    Interesting. Didn't know that. I do like his design and layout, though, with the towers and bubbles.
