Best Comic Book Artists


The Top Ten

1 Jim Lee

Beyond his gorgeous style and draftsmanship, Jim Lee's energetic storytelling; symbolism; use of hidden messages; and dynamic gesturing took comic book art to new levels that elevated the entire medium. Jim Lee is the best to ever move a pencil.

His artworks in Batman: Hush and Superman: For Tomorrow are amazing. - Alienamongyou95

His artwork in the Batman: Hush storyline is amazing... His other works are worth mentioning too.. - Heman

Jim Lee has the best art for both DC and Wildstorm comics ever until Wildstorm was cancelled! But it gets better in the DC Universe's New 52!

2 Alex Ross

Brings a certain mythology to an industry of garbage.

3 John Byrne

A great writer and a gifted artist... His writing and artwork were incredible. - Heman

He is pretty awesome.

4 Dan Jurgens
5 Jack Kirby

Rest of these artists are great, but really - if Jack's name is included there's no choice. He is the King.

I'm surprised. Everybody loves Darkseid just because he'll be in a justice league post credits scene or something? Who Created Darkseid? The King.

Jack is pretty cool, stan lee even dubbed him "the king". and that's stan lee.

Jack is the king. enough said

6 Ron Garney

Ron Garney is the man.

Love him in every way!

7 Gary Frank
8 Todd McFarlane

Spawn and Youngblood, then even Savage Dragon and Haunt with the stand alone label publisher Image Comics. Incredible and smart! - iliescu

9 Michael Turner

One thing that Turner's best creations on these comic book characters is beauty because they're well designed for their body, face and expressions. I would like to collect more of these Aspen MLT comics and show my friends how Turner does best!

I love Michael Turner's artwork, espectially the ones he made for Top Cow and Aspen Comics! Plus, the comic book he created and the one I love is Fathom!

10 Rob Liefeld

The Contenders

11 Steve Ditko

The Amazing Spider-Man. Number One. Period.

12 Frank Miller Frank Miller

Get Rob Liefeld off this list

13 Alan Moore
14 Francis Manapul

Read the Flash new 52. I know some people don't like n52 but it is totally worth it. He is AMAZING! And also not very recognized. REGOGNIZE HIM!

15 Mike Mignola
16 Leinil Francis Yu

Get Liefeld Off


17 Tim Seeley
18 Berni Wrightson

Swamp thing, that is all

19 Dave Sim

Very underrated, and has had some controversy over his beliefs, but really an incredible artist, and an innovator in self publishing and creators rights.

20 Brian Bolland

Where's Stephen Bisette!

21 Grant Morrison
22 Tom Grummett

I know, I know. You may not have heard of him before. I don't think he compares to the ones you see above but his art(Especially in Superboy)is amazing. Look up Tom Grummet Superboy art and you can thank me later so I will just say You're Welcome now.
