Jesus H. Christ this art work is immaculate! Who did this? Also should I find and read this?
Ron Garney, in the Wolverine: Get Mystique trade, I would assume. Garney is the man.
Ah, Thanks Kello. I'm gonna look him up right now.
Exactly right Kello... BTW, how'd you know that right off of the top of your head?
I have loved Mr. Garney since he did Cpatain America w/ Mark Waid before and after Heroes Reborn. He was also on Silver Surfer, Rampaging Hulk, and an awesome stint with JMS on Spidey during the Civil War/Back in Black storyline. I had my eye on this Wolverine arc for a while, but never can find it for cheap. Seriously, this guy is one of my all time favorite comic book artists.
Wow, you really know your Ron Garney, Kello. I'm impressed! Why is it that everybody but me seems so knowledgable about comic book artists??? That is the main hole in my library of comic book knowledge...
Hell I know Jim Lee, Ivan Reis and a few others so I'm with you X.
I'm a big Garney fan too, and I loved Get Mystique. In fact I think it was the second to last Wolverine storyline that I bought. (The last one I bought was the first arc of Wolverine: Weapon X, which of course was by the same creative team!)I remember writers and artists because that's just how I follow comics. I don't follow in terms of characters or superhero teams, I read things based on who the writer and/or artist is. The result is that I almost always enjoy what I read, rather than wasting time reading stories about characters that I like but that have bad writing or art.
Now this is my type of Comment Party the talk of Art!!! X, you need to feel that section of Art in my head sir. Comic book art has been my new favorite type of art, screw Impressionism, Cubism, de stijl and pop art!I absolutely LOVE Jim Lee and Dustin Nyguen's work.
Falisha, as a lover of art and an aspiring artist yourself I think you really need to check out Asterios Polyp. It was listed as the best graphic novel of 2009 by almost everyone who even bothered to make such a list, and is really just a beautiful work of art. It's on Amazon, and it's become pretty popular due to all those lists and awards so you might even be able to find it at the library.
Off the top of my head I could pick out Jim Lee, George Perez and John Romata Jr's work, but that's about it! I do collect like Marc does though, just without taking the artist into consideration. For me, it's usually the writer that helps me decide as to whether or not a series/mini-series is worth a purchase. There are some comics that I'll always pick up regardless of how bad the writing is(I'm looking at YOU New Avengers), but I do keep a very close eye on who is listed as the writer before I buy a comic. And Falisha, as far as I'm concerned, CB art is the ONLY kind of art worth talking about! :P
Outside of comics, I am not much of an art connoisseur. I could maybe pick out a Dalí or a Picasso, but beyond that I'm pretty much useless.Also, when I say comics I'm including the artists on comic strips and newspaper/magazine cartoons as well. I think a lot of truly magnificent artists are ignored by comic book fans just because their work was published in newspapers rather than in monthly issues.
Aww thanks Marc. I'll be sure to check that out. I've found myself to fall for a comic even more if the art is pretty cool. And X, I agree lol CB is faaar better. Now only if they discussed that in my many art history classes, I would've stayed awake lol.
