A couple ways of looking at this:

(1) On which artist have you spent the most money to date?

(2) In your collection, which artist's works have the most combined value (when assessed objectively)?

 

My answer for both is Frank Frazetta, and second place ain't close...

The answer is......... John Buscema to both.

Even if I just counted everything but "How To Draw The Marvel Way" I have spent the most of Big John's artwork and its was the most combines value. Add in "How To Draw The Marvel Way" interiors and cover prelim its skyrockets even more.

Spent money on....Rube Goldberg.

Value in the collection...Ed Hannigan.

The Hannigan covers are so highly valued that I don't hang them in daylight, they are in safe storage.  

The Rube Goldbergs (no inventions) i have framed and displayed in indirect light in a north-facing room.

Up to your Gils in art? (:

Maybe Gene is just really into art by people whose name starts with G?

:)

Mine is Hale. Big shocker for anyone who has seen the art posted in my CAF gallery.

Geoff Shaw for both.

I'm a newer collector focusing on modern Marvel art, so probably a pretty atypical answer.

LOL...I wouldn't say that Gil Kane is anywhere near my favorite comic artist, but, he did so many covers for Marvel (X-Men #94 is one of my all-time faves outside of the Kane examples I already have) as well as the interiors to so many of my all-time fave issues (ASM #96-98 and #121-122 in particular) that I guess it's not surprising that I've ended up with a fair bit of Kane by market value.
