1.  Neal Adams, love the realistic look of his artwork

2. John Buscema, same reason

3.  John Romita, his Spiderman work was great

4.  Lou Fine, nuff said

5.  Mr D Sprang, his work on Batman during the Golden Age really defined the character for me

6.  Todd Macfarlane his stuff wasn't so realistic but it was so dynamic and detailed

7.  Steve Ditko, the cover to Spiderman 2 is my favorite example of his work

8.  John Byrne, I love just about everything he has done

9.  Charles Schulz, his style is simplistic but his ability to tell stories with character expressions is just amazing.

10.  Kav, I know he isn't drawing for any of the big guys, but he has a unique style that has a lot of mood to it with his shadowing and he has given pieces to so many boardees just to be nice (thumbsu

Kirby, Feldstein, Decarlo, Everett, Flessel, Schomburg, Wolverton, J Buscema, Baker and Ditko. Honorable mention to Romita, BW Smith, Wrightson, and Neal Adams. Frazetta, Krenkel and Norem also were great but primarily known outside comic book world.

Please... Just about everyone said Frazetta, and would probably bet that's your winner.

You have to love the guy, and the first time I saw Silver Warrior it changed my life; but for strictly comic books he’s not in my top ten.
