However, for our first edition of Crisis on Infinite Arts (blame Matt for the pun!), which is simply an artist spotlight post, I chose McNiven for his Spider-Man work, of which I "borrowed" his rendition of Peter Parker for my own online avatar and early banners for the blog. He's also one of my favourite artists and one of the few whose comics I'll buy solely for his artwork.
As this is the first edition of Crisis on Infinite Arts, aside from comments on the artist and his work, we're also open to suggestions on format for the posts. Would you like a handful of additional images 'after the jump' for spotlighting the artist? Are there any artists whose work you'd like to see us showcase? Feel free to let us know in the comments below!
