Also, do I consider people who have small contributions to the genre but who have excelled elsewhere?  Hal Foster has one original cover credit but his Prince Valiant work can and does go up against anything done by anyone.

Exactly why I left out one of my all-time greats, Milton Caniff.

In previous threads I've been contradicted for including him because, like Foster, he was in the newspaper strip field, despite being incredibly influential on many top comic book artists.  

To me, the format doesn't matter.

So many people mentioning "Romita" and not clarifying jr or sr. I would assume it goes without saying that it is Sr. but you never know.

 

Please let me know when there is a thread for top ten least favorite artists.

4. Sergio Aragones

 

Aragones doesn't get enought credit for his storyboarding ability. He's amazing at telling a story with pictures.
