Philip Tan (deviantArt | Twitter) is a relative new comer to comics, breaking in back in 2003 with Marvel with spots on Thor and Uncanny X-Men. He later moved on to Image with a lengthy stint on Spawn before making the jump to DC, instantly making a splash with his work on Final Crisis: Revelations, which led to gigs on Green Lantern and Batman and Robin.
I chose to spotlight Tan's Thanos for the simple reason it looks amazing. Anyone that can make Thanos look that good in his old costume deserves recognition and I say that as an unabashed Thanos fanboy. I've included a couple of random samplings of Tan's art after the jump for those interested in seeing more of his earlier and present work.
