Month of Art Stars: Artist’s Choice – Eduardo Risso

by  in Comic News Comment

Every day in June I featured the work of a great artist, only instead of me picking the artist to feature, they were picked by their peers, fellow professional comic book artists who are picking out artists (from the past and present) who they think deserve special attention. Do note that most artists I asked about this gave me multiple answers and I picked out one choice out of a number of suggestions, so these are not definitive answers, like “Artist X likes Artist Y and he thinks all other Artists are terrible!” Here is an archive of the artists featured so far!

I ended up with more suggestions than there were days in the month, so enjoy a few BONUS installments!

The third bonus installment is the pick of Val Semeiks, a long time artist who had significant runs on Conan the Barbarian and The Demon, on top of a great number of other works. He recently had a run on She-Hulk and is currently doing work on Amazing Spider-Man Family. Here‘s his website.

Val’s pick is Eduardo Risso.

Eduardo Risso, obviously, is most well known for his work on 100 issues of 100 Bullets.

Here’s a vast sampling of his work on the title.

Some pages from the #40s…





Some pages from the #50s…





Some pages from the #60s…





Some pages from the #70s…





Some pages from the #80s…





Some pages from the #90s…





Some pages from the final issue, #100…





He also did a Logan mini-series for Marvel recently – here are some pages…







I can’t wait to see what Risso has coming up next – he’s amazing! Here‘s a page where you can buy original art from Risso (that’s where the sample pages from above come from).

Thanks to Val for the pick!
