    I like all Crumb's stuff of course and Gilbert Shelton has done some epicly draughted comics. Mary Fleener has a gorgeous simple style and Roberta Gregory impresses with her impressionistic renderings in Naughty bits. Not to mention Terry LaBan, and Lloyd Dangle and Terry Griffiths. Then there is Chris Ware's Acme Novelty library which is in a class of it's own. Forgot to mention Jim Woodring and David Lapham.

    But my all time favourite for it's wonderfully deceptive use of light and shade coupled with terrific draughtmanship and simple lines goes to Doug Allen's Steven.

    EDIT: There is already an anime comics thread and also a comics you like thread, this is a thread for *well drawn* favourite comics. (sorry to be a thread nazi)

    MegaTokyo sometimes post beautiful single cell "comics" between the storyline comics.

    Not a comic (so it's a bit off topic) but I bet you'd like the little ninja

    Dilbert is the most brilliant comic as far as I'm concerned. Probably not the most brilliantly drawn, although I couldn't reproduce drawings like that. :rolleyes:

    You just like him because he's named Gary. It couldn't possibly have anything to do with the fact that he's brilliant.

    Is "well drawn" code for some particular type of comic?

    Assuming you just mean "well drawn" in my personal opinion, I'm a fan of pretty much any book that Neal Adams ever drew. I was (am) also a big fan of Berni Wrightson, Frank Miller, Marshall Rogers, John Byrne and Walt Simonson.

    P.S. I am perhaps showing my age. I stopped collecting comics around age 16, which was about twenty years ago, so I'm not up on some of the more recent artists!

    Todd McFarlane rocked when he drew Spiderman some years ago. The Spiderman X-Force crossover artwork was amazing. Actually, any Spiderman up to #16. (Closet comic book dweeb here.)

    Like others, I don't know what "well drawn" means, I think my favorite current comics are Pearls before Swine, Opus and Non Sequiter. But, maybe I just don't understand well drawn. Far Side and C&H while they were around...

    I thought I recognized that name...he did the artwork for one of Bill Frisell's CDs.

    Oh to add to it. I also love Ray the manga, very nicely drawn, about a doctor that has X-ray vision.
