It was the best comic to come out of Marvel's short-lived Epic imprint.

I really love "Elektra:Assassin", although it was one of the weaker books I put on the list. It's far from a superhero comic also.

MArshal LAw was always my favorite Epic line imprint. I do believe there is a new graphic novel coming out this year.

I never really like Electra assassin. The artist is making childrens books now.

Bill Sienkiwicz?! Or however you spell it?!

He's a legend in the comic business! His art style makes me drool!

"Stray Toasters" is my second favourite project to come from Epic.

 

If he's doing children's books, it's just like Dave McKean.

According to Rogan (from a long time back), Bill has a Marvel exclusive contract and is doing covers for some shitty Marvel comic at the moment. Rogan said they are good covers, but it's still a waste of his talent.

I wish he'd go back to doing his painted art style for some high-profile, well-written comic series.

Bill Sienkiwicz is one of the best comic artists of his generation. Given who else falls into that generation, that's no faint praise.

i'm sure the pay for the childrens books is much better and pace much slower. I have one by him about the evils of math..

Funny that you guys mention Bill Senkiwiecz (sp?), as I was just now reading Paradise X: Xen and noticed his name in the credits for inks.

I wondered what the hell he was doing on inks and not pencils or colors. Nice ink job, though.

I think the Dark Phoenix saga is brilliant, but not as a self-contained graphic novel. Lifted out of the context of the Claremont/Byrne Uncanny X-Men run, it loses a lot of its impact - Claremont's writing tends to reward long-term reading, with sub-plots established months, or even years, before they pay off, and consequently very few of his stories are entirely satisfying as self-contained entities (God Loves, Man Kills and Days Of Future Past are exceptions to that).

Dave Mckean obviously likes his work a lot.
