Richard Corben

Richard Corben is an amazing artist. His most famous work is Den for Heavy Metal Magazine in the 1970s, at a time when that publication was something special. Back in the days when illustration was considered something different than and less than fine art it was always forgotten that almost all illustrators were also “fine artists” even by the most conservative definition of that term. Corben, for instance, has always produced work for no other purpose than self expression.

His website can be found here.

The Quest for Al Williamson’s Flash Gordon #1

Al Williamson

The epic tale of one mans quest for a lost treasure can be found here.

“A passion for Williamson’s artwork grew. It never surpassed my first love of Alex Raymond, but as I told anyone who would listen, “Williamson is the best comic artist still living and working in the field.” For those of you who know my predispositions, this was no mean compliment. Hal Foster was still alive and drawing Prince Valiant, after all.”
