iFanboy - Episode #240 - Comic Book Art & Artists

Without art and artists, comic books are just words. And what would be the point of that? Ron, Josh, and Conor talk about what makes up their favorite comic book art, what some of the early favorites were, and who is doing the best artwork in comic books today. The idea of art is certainly subjective, but there are a few things all three can agree on; things like Darwyn Cooke, for example. From style to to storytelling, and artists who used to draw one way, and now do it another, we try to cover as much as we can. - iFanboy
