We talk about our favorite renditions of characters, but what about the flipside of that?



To me, Mike Mignola draws the best Hellboy.  There are a lot of great renditions of Hellboy out there, but for some reason, there is a certain essence to his design that Mignola captures.

Fun fact: When Hellboy appeared in Savage Dragon, Erik Larsen tried his best to copy Mignola's style when drawing him because he felt that was the truest way to draw him.

Also was instantly thinking Hellboy. No other character works as well for this topic

Yep, this is the same costume but done by a different artist (Tom Grummett who is normally pretty good).  Looks terrible.

True.  No one quite captures the fin like he does.


And since we're talking about Image, Sam Keith is pretty much the only person who could draw The Maxx and make it not look awkward.

I've always been surprised that, to my knowledge, he has never worked for Marvel or DC.

I googled.  There is some LOSH out there and a few covers.  One has Deadpool fighting Hawkeye.

His style has evolved a hell of a lot down the years, but Carlos Ezquerra is the definitive Judge Dredd artist by a long way. Some draw prettier single scenes but no-one has delivered the same level of consistent quality and story-telling as Ezquerra has across Dredd's entire existence. He's still a regular artist on the book to this day and has drawn most of the key moments in Dredd history.

First issue:


Later stuff:












Cheers.

Heck, I'm not sure I've seen Groo being drawn by anyone by Aragones.
