Keith Giffen – a much-underrated writer & artist in my view and one who really splits opinion. I’m a big fan, particularly of the work he put out mid-career, when he was particularly influenced by the wonderful Jose Munoz

Okay, influenced might be a nice way to put it… but when I first saw Giffen’s art in this style I’d not seen Munoz yet and it’s always been something I’ll always enjoy.

Detective Comics 600…

Jonah Hex…

Doctor Fate…

And of course… Ambush Bug…

And then there’s the fill-in he did in the middle of that incredible run on Justice League, co-written by Giffen and Dematteis and drawn by Kevin Mcguire. The Giffen and Al Gordon drawn JLI issue 13 of 1988 where the League took on the Suicide Squad was another shift to soften the artwork to fit into McGuire’s look and style on the comic…
