Brian Bolland Cover Gallery

The Joker

Brian Bolland has a distinctive style that is easily recognizable. His clean, detailed linework along with his attention to page composition has made him a highly sought after cover artist.

Brian Bolland (photo by Luigi Novi)Though most American comic book fans will recognize his beautifully detailed cover to Batman: The Killing Joke by Alan Moore and illustrated by Bolland himself, he was already well versed in doing covers and interiors in the UK and also for DC Comics in the US. He was clearly one of the definitive Judge Dredd artists in 2000 A.D. and illustrated DC’s first 12 issue maxi series, Camelot 3000.

Bolland had several very lengthy runs as the cover artist on a few DC Comics titles including Animal Man, Wonder Woman, The Invisibles, Batman: Gotham Nights, and Jack of Fables. He drew so many consecutive covers of Animal Man, the first 56 issues to be precise, that regardless of who actually drew the interiors, when you would think of Animal Man, Bolland’s artwork would instantly spring to mind.

Bill Sienkiewicz Cover and Art Gallery

Bill Sienkiewicz is one of those artists that polarizes comic book fans – You either love his art or you hate it. Much like Frank Miller, Sienkiewicz’s early artwork was influenced by Neal Adams, but eventually took on a style of it’s own.

His early Moon Knight issues, especially the cover to issue one, show how close his art style compared to Adams. Once established in the industry, Sienkiewicz really let loose on his artwork. Later issues of his run on Moon Knight show glimpses of what he would wind up doing on The New Mutants several years later. In 1984 – 1985, Sienkiewicz’s run on the New Mutants, along with writer Chris Claremont, was not only artistically innovative, it was a seminal moment for the title.

Between 1986 and 1990, Sienkiewicz worked with highly talented writers on a number of projects: Frank Miller on Elektra: Assassin mini-series and Daredevil: Love and War GN, Andrew Helfer on The Shadow, and Alan Moore on Big Numbers and Brought to Light GN among others. Aside from the previous works, He’s also contributed to numerous Marvel and DC books including The Question, Batman, The Fantastic Four, Stray Toasters, and The Black Widow.

Whether you love or hate his art style, Bill Sienkiewicz is certainly an innovator in his field. That’s exactly what comics need from time to time!

Jim Steranko Marvel Covers and Art Gallery

SterankoFeb09ComicConByK72ndstJim Steranko was one of the great comic book “Pop” artists that enjoyed notoriety in the late 1960’s. Although he worked in the industry for a relatively short time, his impact on the style and design at the time was enormous.

Steranko combined both a dynamic and surreal style that was rather unique and instantly identifiable.  His influence can still be seen today in artists like Paul Gulacy and many others.

He is clearly one of the great influencers of modern comics.

Here are just some of the fantastic covers and pages he created during his brief tenure at Marvel Comics. If you know who Steranko is, this will bring back fond memories. To those who have never heard of him, now is the time to discover some of his great work!
