A few days ago I managed to pick up a copy of Cover Run – The DC Comics art of Adam Hughes.
I’ll leave all the details of his career to the die hard fans and professionals; since I have never been a loyal comic book follower. Adam Hughes is certainly one of my favourite comic illustrators (along with Alex Ross, Frank Frazetta, Neal Adams, ad nauseam). Hughes packs in a lot of the styling of Art Nouveau into his covers (much like that of J.C. Leyendecker – another of my favourite artists) with some very powerful and dynamic posing.
If you haven’t already, check out the book!
Better yet, just go buy it!
