First four are fire ^(>o<)^

I f*ckin' LOVE Art Adams. Bastard's in my top 10. One of my favourite things that he did (and one of my favourite comics in general), was The New Mutants Special Edition. You had 'em gallivanting around Asgard.

Dude drew a badass Loki.
cipher - 3/14/2014, 8:36 AM
His stuff was so f*cking detailed, too.
Pheezmatic - 3/14/2014, 8:48 AM
[frick]in awesome art...
Nomis - 3/14/2014, 8:51 AM
Outside of Art Adams none of these guys really do it for me. And I never thought Paul Smith was that good of an X-men artist after Cockrum left (the second time).

I always hope Art Adams would be the regular penciler for the title after Cockrum left (with Terry Austin inking of course), but I always heard he was really slow being so detailed. But the Annuals he did for them and the New Mutants are really great.

But I grew up on the Neal Adams/ tom Palmer and latter John Byrne/Terry Austin days so I was a little Spoiled in the artwork of the X-men to say the least.
Nomis - 3/14/2014, 9:06 AM
Classic X-Men Art!

The Master: NEAL ADAMS!







Heir to the throne: John Bryne Little know fact: John Byrne got into comic art because he had seen the Neal Adams/Tome Palmer X-men issues.









What should have been: Art Adams






cipher - 3/14/2014, 9:11 AM
I didn't know that about Byrne. Guy's the best. My favourite comic artist.
Nomis - 3/14/2014, 9:13 AM
And a shot out to Jim Lee the last great regular artist for the X-Men (with respect to Alan Davis and Andy Kubert!)







cipher - 3/14/2014, 9:13 AM
That image of Wolvie in the sewers is the Wolvie image, y'know? Look at 'im.. he's just ready to rip somebody's f*ckin' head off.. he's just angry and itching to rain fire on the f*ckers which is exactly what he did in the next issue.
cipher - 3/14/2014, 9:14 AM
Kubert, Lee, Davis.. X-Men's had some of the best workin' on it.
Nomis - 3/14/2014, 9:26 AM
@ cipher - Yeah, he saw the lee/Kirby stuff on the Marvel titles that capture his attention (liek everyone else), but it was the "naturalness" of Neal Adams style that propel him to make comics a career and work toward drawing the X-men title. He's My 3rd favorite artist.

Top 10

1. Neal Adams
2. Mike Grell
3. John Byrne
4. George Perez
5. Gil Kane
6. Jim Lee
7. the Late)Marshall Rogers
8. Mike Nasser (Nietzer)
9. Ivan Reis
10. Ed benes

@ Nomis

Mate I am not joking

all the pictures that you posted are some of my favorites

The Sauron is really dear to my heart, with the electric poles that he puts his hands on :)

ah man the old guard rules ;)
Nomis - 3/14/2014, 9:54 AM
@ Clem - Ain't that some great stuff!!! Who's your favorite comic artist?

TheClemster - 3/14/2014, 10:00 AM
Oh man

My favorite???

Neal Adams will always be at the top for me
Doopie - 3/14/2014, 10:01 AM
guys, you're forgetting the greatest

TheClemster - 3/14/2014, 10:02 AM
For the new guard Jim Lee really impresses me

and for writers

Geoff Johns and Ed Brubaker are far above everyone
TheClemster - 3/14/2014, 10:02 AM
@ Doopie

didn't he drew the Inferno story as well???
Pasto - 3/14/2014, 10:04 AM
I would do some bad stuff to X-23.
Doopie - 3/14/2014, 10:05 AM
Clem

as far as i know yes but i must admit i was only joking, Liefeld sucks really although the pic above isn't the worst example of his stuff
Pasto - 3/14/2014, 10:05 AM
That shotgun looks very similar to the one from Halo: Reach.
TheClemster - 3/14/2014, 10:08 AM
@ Doopie

Yeah I wasn't trying to judge but the inferno story really was a turning point for me in decreasing my interest for comic books which I only regained 3 years ago by buying all the Black Knight green lantern hardcovers and the Civil War
It felt like I had a lot to discover again and could enjoy again comics like a newbie
Doopie - 3/14/2014, 10:13 AM
I haven't picked up an X-Men comic in years. I read all throughout the 90s and got lots of the annuals from the 70s but I lost interest when Chris Claremont returned to the title. can't remember what year it was but he brought in the 'xtreme' team which was total shit. I did like Larroca's art on it though
Nomis - 3/14/2014, 10:14 AM
@ Clem - Neal Adams is proboly the 2nd most important artist in comics second on to the "king" himself, Jack Kirby, That's why he 's my favorite also.

I think Adam Kubert is one of the unsung greats for X-men Artist!





TheClemster - 3/14/2014, 10:16 AM
The recent astonishing run isn't bad you should give it a try
TheClemster - 3/14/2014, 10:17 AM
@ Nomis

aaaaaaaah Jack Kirby's fantastic four

such nostalgia
Doopie - 3/14/2014, 10:23 AM
i agree with Nomis Kubert is a boss. Loved the work on Batman/Predator. the brothers teamed up for that one...good shit
Nomis - 3/14/2014, 10:42 AM
I second Clemster's recommendation of the Joss Whedon's run on Astonishing X-Men1 Amazing stuff. Very "Clairmont" like in the story telling especially the first two story arcs.

@ doopie - Man, NOW that's old school, Batman Vs. Predator! ONe of the best illustrated batman stories ever!

TheClemster - 3/14/2014, 10:44 AM
batman / Predator

walk down memory lane :)

The Bat at the top of its adaptability
Doopie - 3/14/2014, 10:51 AM
i absolutely love that book. Andy's work on 1602 is also some of my favourite stuff
TheClemster - 3/14/2014, 10:52 AM
1602????
Doopie - 3/14/2014, 10:56 AM
Marvel 1602. written by Neil Gaiman. it's one of my favourite stories
TheClemster - 3/14/2014, 11:16 AM
Wow I just googled that and it looks pretty cool

I will prob buy the TPB during the weekend

Thanks for educating me mate :)
Doopie - 3/14/2014, 11:28 AM
No probs dude, steer clear of the sequels tho. Nowhere near as good
Nomis - 3/14/2014, 11:33 AM
I always heard about 1602 but never got it. Might have to check it out.
Ramiel - 3/14/2014, 11:49 AM
Sucks they couldn't get Jim Lee. He's probably the main reason why I got into comic books in the first place.
Franshu - 3/14/2014, 12:30 PM
OH YEAH, MAN. Lee Bermejo.
loki668 - 3/14/2014, 11:28 PM
@Nomis

1602 was a very interesting read. If you're a history buff, you'll really enjoy it.
EarOne - 3/15/2014, 5:49 AM
man, i wish marvel would hire Bruce Timm to do an avengers toon series like he did with the justice league.
