Can anyone recommend any comic book artists that have unique styles?

I mean not in the superhero sense, more just artistic work. I'm not looking for Jim Lee or anything like that, just really good covers that are kinda simplistic or rather don't go towards the general superhero consensus. I hope people understand what I mean.
 
i was going to say chris bachalo but now i'm not sure exactly what you are looking for.
 
i'm not 100%sure what you are looking for but Tim Sale certainly has a unique style

DC New Frontier is a must, and try finding Batman:Ego as well.

Yeah sci-fi is fine. Superhero comics can be fine. Its just I want artists that have unique styles. Not your standard, as much as I like him, Jim Lee type comic work.

Dave Johnson - Mainly does 100 Bullets covers, but they're all gorgeous and he has other work as well

ya know, LWX, gotta thank you for starting this thread. Cause it's not about Alex Ross, or Jim Lee, or any of those over big (*coughoverratedcough*) names. We get to talk about the underappreciated guys.

Paul Pope - I think you'll love him. Writes his own amazing stories too.
