    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.

    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.

    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.
