My Favorite Artists

Every once in a while I like to write about things that I like. Chicken katsu, Irish car bombs (the beverage, not the terrorist act), beer, things like that. I also occasionally write about artists that I am currently in love with. I love their art I mean, although many of them are fine upstanding citizens, no doubt about that. I rarely, if ever, buy comics anymore and haven't in a while but I will buy certain comics because of the artist involved. Today's artist is someone I am lucky enough to call a friend, but don't let that turn you off, he's the real deal. Scott Godlewski is the shit, the bees knees, one of the best of the new guys. His work is mainstream enough to fit any DC or Marvel book without being a carbon copy "house" style ripoff. He is realistic enough that his characters and settings all look real without being so realistic that it looks flat. Most of all, his stuff is exciting. He's currently in the middle of a series for BOOM! comics called Codebreakers and then he's moving onto their new ongoing Dracula book this fall. I would otherwise never read or buy a comic about Dracula. Check out his gallery on deviantArt.com or his website.



If this kid isn't on an X-Men, Avengers or Batman book within 2 years I will have lost all faith in comic editors and fans. He is part of what is good about the new wave of artists.

Shucks, man. Those are some truly kind words. Preposterous, but kind. You're a good friend, dude, and a helluva an artist yourself. We'll get Rise out there one of these days.

yeah, I'm guessing some form of Avengers or JLA book if not one of the other big gun's books. If Marvel or DC DON'T snap him up they're eating retard sandwiches.

I think all of you guys are terrific. You make Arizona really shine as an example of terrific new comics talent. I get inspired every day reading your blogs and looking at your great pieces. Best to all of you.
