I have written before about how much I love Mike Allred's artwork. His clean, expressive style is always filled with interesting designs and body types. I can tell he really has fun with the breakout star of The Atomics, It Girl. Her ability to mimic the properties of anything she touches really allows Allred to get visually creative. Ramona Fradon is one of the greatest underestimated artists that the industry has seen, in my eyes. Take a look at her work on Aquaman or Metamorpho and you will see that she has many of the same artistic sensibilities that make modern illustrators like Allred so appealing. It's even more impressive when you consider how male dominated the industry was back when she broke into the scene.
