Comic art

When it comes to comic book art I think I'm a bit old school. I like some of the up and comers of today but there aren't that many that get me gooey eyed and a little bit obsessive. I grew up adoring every precious panel of Jim Steranko's body of work while bingeing out on the flood of Jack Kirby. I'm not totally locked in nostalgia though. I was blown away by Mike Mignola's Hellboy in the 90s and more recently I'm loving David Petersen's Mouse Guard. It's nearly 40 years since I first went, "Wow!!!Lookit that." over some Jack Kirby Thor artwork. Here's hoping it won't be too long before there is a new Mouse Guard book under the Christmas Tree again.
