Thanks for the two posts you've done cosmokatt7 since this thread wasn't alive for a while . I checked out the links of the two artists , they've got some cool styles that can't be denied greatness. A person that I'd put on my list would probably be Phil Jiminez who'd be teachin' me when my 2nd year at SVA comes up, his work is great and one of his inspirations is another well known artist named George Perez, thanks for everything.

In the early 1970's, I was a young publisher/artist who put together a few books under the Omnibus Publishing banner. The most notable was The Wrightson Treasury (co-edited with Comic artist/historian, Greg Theakston). The Wrightson Treasury, incidentally, is now something of a collectors item.

It was during this time that I met one of the most inventive, creative and charismatic artists of the past century -- the late Vaughn Bode.

I was quite surprised to find a YouTube video of Vaughn at the 1974 Toronto Comic Book Convention. I had just begun working with Vaughn on a publishing deal which, coincidentally, he mentions in this video. All I can say is that it would have been a "sweet deal" for everyone concerned had Vaughn not accidentally died from an auto-erotic activity gone terribly awry.

To this day I still miss this enigmatic character and creative tour de force. Fortunately, he left behind a large body of work but, still, I cannot help but think of the visions -- his comic universe -- left unshared.

Regrettably, because much of Vaughn's work was developed for men's magazines; Cavalier and Swank, I am hesitant to post some of his more notable work here. Nevertheless, this work can be readily accessed through any Google Search of Vaughn Bode. Again, I must mention that much of his work is of an adult nature and, as such, discretion should be used. Still, I have supplied links to some of his work for viewing by wider audiences.

Here is a three part interview Vaughn held at the 1974 Toronto Comic Book Convention. This interview is a rare glimpse into the psyche of Vaughn Bode and his incredible talent. Please Note that the video is in black and white and of rather poor quality but it is still quite viewable and well worth the time.

Please note that, during the video, some examples of Vaughn's work can be viewed. One of the examples depicts some frontal nudity with an image from Cavalier Magazine, a men's magazine. I do not find it offensive personally but, nevertheless, one might consider discretion.

Vaughn Bode Interview - Toronto Comic Book Convention Part Two


Vaughn Bode Interview - Toronto Comic Book Convention Part Three



Some links to examples of the work of Vaughn Bode

On Ice

Da Duel

River Meat

Food Stuffs

War Lizard

For a more in-depth glimpse into the work of Vaughn Bode, I recommend visiting Da Vaughn Bode Site.

What happened with that three post replica cosmokatt, It's a weird accurance but hey it happened. There can only be one gret like intrepid said but the only guy I'll choose for that spot is (the one you chose) the one and only Jack Kirby.He created most of the characters in the marvel universe and some for DC.Nobody can be paired with this greatness who has more than enough power to wield Thor's hammer.

...One person I would like to add as a greatest artist is not

primarly known for his comic book or cartoon work...

That is the fantastic Frank Frazetta

He did some comic book work in the 1950's and he actually drew

Li'l Abner , the newspaper strip for a while ...(ghosted) for

Al Capp...

...I always wondered why Dasiy Mae looked so Hot...!

...Someone that many (younger) fans may not even be aware of is

the (Great) Alex Toth ... Other cartoonist often lauded his

excellent sense of design... If you're a fan of (the original ) Space Ghost

cartoon... then you've seen his work...!

I've seen Alex Toth's work and wished he could have been remembered by more people, on his great art and creations.I used to watch the old Space Ghost stuff and thought of his work as bein' simillar to Eisner's work back then.

You got that right intrepid, Frazetta's work is a one of a kind type that can't be compared to other people's art.Before I go I'd like to congradulate ya on turnin' into a super mod (pretty late) and hope ya post some more stuff Logan, a I mean intrepid.

There are so many great comic book artists that it really is impossible to pick just one.

The first artist that I ever "noticed" when I first started reading and collecting comics was, as someone else mentioned, the King -- Jack Kirby.

Thanks to YouTube, I found a rather rare interview of Jack Kirby with an introduction by science fiction author Harlan Ellison



Listening to Jack "The King" Kirby describe how he developed his pantheon of characters while viewing examples of his art certainly brings a greater understanding of the creative genius of this man.

I truely believe that he was the king of comics ,if he's listenin' from the skys above I really hope he's enjoyin' what has been done to his creations.The only thing I feel sorry for is the way marvel screwed him over with not givin' him the royalties he deserved from all those characters he's created.Thanks for the post benevolent tyrant.
