JIm Steranko

There is very little that hasn't already been said about Steranko, he is the artist's artist. For his many skills I consider his uniqueness to be in his skill for composition; for design. He has created images that still resonate and are regularly homaged many years after thier original publication. His impact on the comic medium runs deep, demonstated by the fact that his 3 issue run on Captain America are among the most original and popular stories ever featured in the title. Something that generally speaking escapes the public eye is that during his time as a film concept aritst he created the look of Indiana Jones before Harrison Ford was even cast.
