Month of Art Stars: Artist’s Choice – Alan Weiss

Every day this month I’m going to feature the work of a great artist, only instead of me picking the artist to feature, they will be picked by their peers, fellow professional comic book artists who are picking out artists (from the past and present) who they think deserve special attention. Do note that most artists I asked about this gave me multiple answers and I picked out one choice out of a number of suggestions, so these are not definitive answers, like “Artist X likes Artist Y and he thinks all other Artists are terrible!” Here is an archive of the artists featured so far!

Today, we have the pick of Norm Breyfogle, who is one of the most notable artists Batman has ever had, drawing the book during one of the peak periods in Batman’s popularity (late 1980s/early 1990s). Breyfogle also helped create the flagship title of the Ultraverse, Prime. He’s still hard at work doing comics – just check out his website here to learn more!
