Who are your all time top five favorite inkers?
Now this is just off the top of my head and I know I'll be leaving out favorites here.
I tend to favor inkers who are also pencilers for some reason and I love inks that have a lot of personality. The thread is favorite inkers and not best inkers so...In no particular order:
Al Williamson. I love his ink style from the 50's and I love the style he approached his work with from the 1980's on even more. IMHO he made John Romita jr. look the best.
Todd Mcfarlane. He's known as a penciler but what always appealed to me about his work was his inks. I realize this will catch me plenty of flack from the comicon peanut gallery but his inking has a lot of personality to it.
Dick Giordano. I knowI wish he'd get a chance to ink some fo the guys today. He did a few Hulk books over Romita jr a few years back and it really looked spectacular. John has a very difficult style to make stand out and Giordano really did the job.
