His style has changed over the years. From straight copy of Neal, then coming into his own during the Green Arrow and Warlord runs. Although I didn't care too much for his work on Sable I appreciated his dedication to the project. Great guy to meet in person and always has a smile. Share you interactions, commissions, and pages. 

I have a number of commissions but instead I will post a cover on my wishlist I hope to cross off someday soon.

Here’s one of my commissions from Grell. I’ll try and get a photo of the other one later tonight.

Over in the commissions page, I posted my Grell Wildfire from last September. Here's a page I got from his work on X-Men Forever 2. It was mis-labeled as containing Kitty in the auction, because of Lockheed. The dragon is actually sitting on "Ro," the young version of Ororo. Hence the white hair and white eyes.

I think Grell is definitely underappreciated. As noted above, he did indeed, start out as a clone of Adams, but his work developed a sweeter, more gentle feel to Adams’ work which has always had a healthy dose of testosterone in it.

The thing is his art is not "Great", he just has a way with pencils that's unique to him. Plus he is a great guy who loves his fans! Here is a simple Ghost Rider I just got.
