I have a feeling this is going to be wildly unpopular but mine is Tony Salmons. Dude seemingly has no work ethic and comes off as a tool in old interviews but there is something about his art that just works for me. I like the dash of Kirby, maybe? I honestly wish he had done more in comics because there just isn't a lot out there.

Mignola for me. But I've found that I just don't care for his guest work on X-titles (which was my introduction to him). Once I saw him work on things (that I feel) are more suited to his style, I loved his work.

I will echo others take on Sienkiewicz on New Mutants.  As a kid in the 80s, his work was confusing and I had no idea what was going on so I stopped reading it.   I did come around, and currently I do like his unique style.

Herb Trimpe... at first looked a lot like Kirby, but have learned to appreciate his distinctive style, especially on the Hulk.  And, getting to know him personally enhanced my appreciation of his work.

The Hulk is a tough guy to get to know.
