    Hi, I'm looking for opinions on some of the best comic book artists so that I can hunt for good art.

    I collect comics by artists rather than by the series.

    I've been amassing Spider-Man books penciled by Mark Bagley so far.

    I've recently taken a liking to Terry Dodson's Spider-Man art, especialy the way he draws female characters.

    I'm looking to collect comic books with well drawn female characters too.
    Michael Turner and J. Scott Campbell is a good example.

    Looking for more. Please help if you can.

    Michael Zulli, Frank Quitely, Scott Clark, Brian Bolland, Jim Lee, Dave McKean and Leo Fernandez are all pretty darn good.

    Frank Quitely, pick up we3 and all star superman, comic perfection.

    John Cassaday, the entire run of planetary is a love story. a love story for comics.

    Mark Buckingham is a monster. Constant quality on fables.

    Bolland with his amazing cover art, a pity he's not doing any ongoing.

    For good women, you might want to turn to Frank Cho, Im still waiting for the uncensored Shanna She Devil to come out. Also early issues of X men has Jim Lee draw women like super models.

    If you like Dodson I recommend Kevin Maguire, Adam Hughes and Frank Cho. Recent available works by these guys: KM was doing two JL mini series and Defenders. Frank Cho did the 1st Shanna mini series. Adam Hughes hasn't drawn interior in a while, the last one he did I think is Images Gen-13. If you like Michael Turner you should check out Jim Lees run on 90s X-Men. He had his hands full drawing Psylocke and Rogue.

    Most of my favourites are actually teams; penciller & inker. Here's the list:
    John Romita Jr.
    Bryan Hitch
    Darick Robertson (for his work on The Boys, which I consider to be the best comic out at the moment)
    Jim Lee (preferably inked by Scott Williams)
    Marc Silvestri (preferably inked by Dan Green)
    Andy Wildman (inked by Stephen Baskerville)

    Bagley
    Texeira
    Gene Colan

    If you are really into the artwork, you might look into buying some original art. I've got a Bagley USM Venom page that is the highlight of my comic stuff.

    George Perez- LOVE his Teen Titans stuff.

    Ivan Reis- His GL run was amazing, and I really enjoyed the Rann/Thanagar War.

    Ethan Van Sciver- GL: Rebrith and Flash:Rebirth

    Doug Mahnke- weird but awesome.

    John Bryne- the dude maybe be a prick, but his Uncanny X-men run was great.

    Ron Garney's Ghost Rider run. It was the highpoint of his career, and IMO its been downhill ever since.

    The Kuberts: Andy, Adam, & their father Joe.

    I'll toss in Art Adams. I've been a big fan of him since he did those X-Men annuals in the 80s.

    I've also become a huge fan of Amanda Conner in the last couple years. She's currently on the Power Girl title and the art for that is just fantastic.

    The Choi/Oback duo. Their work on X-Force and the previous X-23 miniseries has been spectacular.

    John Romita Jr is one of the best pencillers in the business.
    I've never seen an artist with such a simplistic art style that held so much weight and energy before.
    Also, Gene Colan is an all-time great, I had the pleasure of doing an interview with him and Tom Palmer a few days ago, wonderful guy.
