Gene Colan and Dick Ayers are a couple of artists that I enjoy. (ok - I also wanted to see how the *spoon* filter handled Mr. Ayers.)

I love Kirby; he’s the reason I got back into comics 12-odd years ago but I prefer his Silver and Bronze age work. I know the early stuff is just as dynamic and explosive but the Simon/Kirby combo art-wise isn’t my favorite. What can I say? The hearts wants what the hearts wants.

Other guys that leap to mind as favorites are Bill Everett, Harvey Kurtzman, Russ Heath and Tony Dipreta. DiPreta really bothered me as a kid reading horror reprints but he’s really grown on me in my old age.

When I first started collecting in the 1960s, Kirby was clearly the King. Kind of fallen out of favor these days. Just posted this in the GA thread.

I personally Love Bill Everett. Also Al Feldstien and Graham "Ghastly" Ingels. I got to meet Feldstien a couple of years before he passed and talked with him for about a half a hour as nobody was asking for his auto so he was just sitting there with nothing to do. Can you imagine! Just a great guy. In that half hour he let loose with so much EC history and Bill Gains stories. I will just say he was not a fan. Good stuff!

I like Syd Shores quite a bit. I think a lot of people forget about him. The man did some awesome timely Cap covers.

EC Comics are not Golden Age!

There are WAY too many amazing GA artists to even begin to narrow it down ...

Syd Shores did one of my favorite ghoulish WWII Angel covers...

EC artists don't count, since EC Comics aren't golden age. That'll help you narrow it down.

If, like most collectors, you define the GA as 1938-1955, then they fall precisely in there. If you use the Atomic Age, they still fall into the period before the start of the SA

That's not true. Only Noobs think the Golden Age lasted until 1955.

I think the Golden Age of comics died after the war.

Actually I don't agree with the cut-off of 1945 that Overstreet uses either. Even though it's 1945 for most collectors, I consider the end 1950, with the rise of EC.
