Guess the Artist – 10/19/2015

Way back on September of 2005, I started a feature on my old Ferret Press blog called “Monday Morning Guess the Artist,” with the following introduction:

So each Monday, we’ll look at a piece of artwork from the early career of some of today’s big name comic book artists. Thrill to their humble beginnings, gasp at their amateur mistakes, and wonder at their generic style. So without further ado, check out today’s page and use the comments section to…Guess the Artist!

Over the next six years, I posted 279 pages of artwork. I’m not sure I have the same amount of time and energy to devote to the feature again, but every once in a while I’ll revive it on my current blog. I’ll also re-post a page from one of my old posts, much like I’m doing over at the Splash Wednesday feature. So be sure to check back here on Mondays.

OK, here’s your first page. Use the comments section to share your guess:

And here’s a page from back in September, 2005. Sadly, due to a technical glitch of switching the comments section of my old blog from a 3rd party service to Blogger’s (then) new comments section, I lost the vast majority of the blog’s comments, and with them, the precise answer for each page. So while I know who the artist is, I won’t be able to give you the precise issue and number. But give it a shot anyway:

    1. Hey there! I missed this feature, so I am glad to see it even intermittently…

      The first page is Kyle Baker maybe?
      The second one I own, so I won’t spoil the fun.

      I hope you are well!

    2. Sterg guessed it. It’s Kyle Baker, from 1985’s Codename: Danger #2, from Lodestone Publishing.

      As for the second page, it’s Hellboy creator Mike Mignola’s early work from an issue of Comico’s Elementals.
