i guess most of his work just seems the same to me. i liked some of his stuff. but a lot of it just feels like the same thing reworked over and again. maybe it's just a general impression, but that's the sense i get.

Barbara Kesel did several runs over at crossgen I really liked...

Oh, Wendy Pini did a reeeally long running classic run in Elfquest. *Only* did Elfquest, but I think it's long enough to count.

Which is, admittedly, one way to maintain consistency.

I actually prefer Gaiman as a novelist. Yes, I loved his Sandman and the way he helped turned comics into literature. But as a novelist, able to work on his own ideas and create his own worlds without having to try to fit into an established universe, without having to explain his ideas to an editor or an artist, his flair for fantasy is finally given full reign.

I have recently discovered Stjepan Šejić and holy goodness - he is fantastic! I love everything I've seen of his work so far, both his writing and his art.

Have you read any of Warren's novels Digi, if you haven't you should. They are suprisingly good.
