Artist Watch: Walt Simonson

With the recent release of the Thor movie it's only right to give a big shout out to one of the artists who crafted some of the most memorable thunder god moments ever, the great Walt Simonson!  Known for his energetic, graphic lines and compositions Simonson's style has always stood out among his peers.  Not only is he a unique artist but (along with his equally great wife Louise Simonson) he's also an excellent storyteller and created numerous characters that have become staples of the super hero and sci fi genres.  Both he and Louise continue to work in comics today and I met them both at the Big Apple Comic-Con!
