Since I don't read alot of comics these days, new to me may not be all that new.

I discovered Nicola Scott a few years ago when she started drawing Wonder Woman. And she drew Teen Titans and Dejah Thoris.

Finally Harvey Tolibao a Filipino artist. I discovered him a few years ago when he drew X-Men. This crazy detailed splash, wish it was inked so the details would really pop.

Nicola Scott is great, I see a lot of joy in her work.  She was running a pretty good sale between Christmas and New Year, but I had just splurged on two pages so was unable to take advantage.  Good things.

Her best work is on her creator-owned title with Greg Rucka, Black Magick.

Another "newbie" whose work I really enjoy is Fiona Staples. Sadly, she's all digital. :(

Anthony Snyder is the dealer.  That Spider-Gwen is by Thony Silas.

Pepe Larraz / R.B. Silva - I lump these guys together for a couple of reasons - they are both successors to the Stuart Immonen style in their own unique ways and they both worked on the House of X / Powers of X duology from earlier this year that upended the X-Universe.  It's a shame both seem to mostly work in digital.

Russell Dauterman - another mostly digital guy - his work on Thor with Jason Aaron over the past few years was very striking.

Timothy Green II - I'm not sure why he doesn't get more work.  Perhaps his most famous work was on the precursor to the modern Guardians of the Galaxy in Annhilation: Conquest - Star-Lord.  This was the book that put together Marvel's dynamic duo, Rocket and Groot, for the first time ever (and shout out to me for owning the first on panel team-up of Rocket and Groot)

For all it’s worth, Snyder is one of the better dealers out there. His prices are reasonable and he treats his customers fairly. I have no doubt that you paid a fair price for a nice piece of work. So, congratulations on your acquisition.

I’ll second Pepe Larraz. Ben Oliver is another artist with a great touch - both Pepe and Ben have produced some killer commissions as I’ve seen on CAF. Also relatively new is my favorite, Tradd Moore, an artist often missed by collectors not reading modern books. Truly, his art has to be seen in person to really be appreciated. I heard such good thing that I paid a relatively small sum to buy a page from a series a knew nothing about, and from the moment I saw it I was hooked. And the more I found out the more I was just gobsmacked by his art. From the House of Felix.

A very hearty second for Tradd Moore. I didn’t include him in my post as I figure he’s well known by now. But should be well known doesn’t always mean it’s true and you make a good point that being a modern artist means he may be overlooked by some. I don’t think it’s possible to overstate how incredible and unique his work is. I honestly believe he’ll be considered one of the all time greats as long as he keeps putting out content. 
 

I only own one piece by him, but it’s one of my favorite pieces I own.

Tradd has had several distinct phases in his style already; I love 'em all. SILVER SURFER: BLACK has brought him his largest audience yet, and he's only going to build on that further with his next project. Can't wait for that to be announced.

For those who haven't seen it, here's a video from a few years ago where we showed off his original art to fans at SDCC. You really do need to see it in person to truly understand.
