  5. Jordie Bellaire

    If there is a comic on the shelf right now not coloured by Jordie Bellaire, I have not seen it. This weekend, during a quick comic shop, I saw her name on Moon Knight, Convergence Shazam, The Kitchen, Injection and probably a bunch more I did not spot. Jordie Bellaire has been a familiar fixture of our comic shop shelves for much of the last two years. So prolific and wonderful is Ballaire, that last year the industry showed their appreciation in the form of an Eisner award. Which in 22 years only 10 other colourist have earned, Dave Stewart and Chris Ware claiming over half of the awards between them.

  6. Alex Raymond (1909 – 1956)

    Alexander Gillespie Raymond was born in New Rochelle, New York. An American cartoonist, best known for creating Flash Gordon. He is the definitive “artist’s artist”, with a host of admirers as well as impersonators. Most of comic leading figures have singled out Mr Raymond as significant influence on their work, include Jack Kirby, Bob Kane, John Buscema, Joe Kubert, John Romita Jr. and Alex Toth. With many, many others, it’s probably easier to list the artist whom have not been influenced by Mr Raymond’s work.
