Irrational Games have posted up an interview with artist Robb Waters (extra b for badass), who is now working on the upcoming superhero tactical squad RPG dealie Freedom Force vs. the Third Reich.

Which era of comic art in do you prefer in general? Why? Any comic artists who you particularly admire?

Silver Age for sure. The quality of art just can't be touched. I'm really not a fan of most of the art in comics today. This goes for the new coloring techniques and paper quality as well. I much prefer the simple block color printing on cheap non acid free newsprint. There is just a certain charm in there that today's slick and flashy comics just don't posses. Typically I find myself buying a Silver or Bronze Age comic rather than something new off the stands.

There were so many talented artists working in the Silver Age of comics. These guys actually new how to draw and didn't have to rely on fancy color gradients and lens flares to cover their shortcomings. My favorites include: Steve Ditko, Gene Colan, John Buscema, John Romita, Wally Wood and of course Jack Kirby. I do think there are a handful of very talented comic illustrators working today such as Steve Rude, Alex Ross, Mike Mignola, John Romita jr. and Mike Allred to name a few. I think what these guys share is a common influence and respect for the classic illustrators.​
