I noticed that most people on this forum talk about American comics. That's all very cool and interesting but as a European (I'm from the Netherlands) I'd love to share some extremly cool European artists with you.
I thought I'd begin with some of the most famous ones, from more then 50 years ago. (I'm only 28, but I love this stuff!)
This is some stuff from the Lucky Luke comics by Morris. Lucky Luke is well known because of it's humour (a lot of the Lucky Luke albums were written by Goscinny known from the Asterix comics) the cameo's by hollywood figures are also well known.
What you don't hear enough of in my opinion is the great use of colours. I'm not sure to what degree Mr. Morris is responsible for the colours but I love the bold use of solid red, blue and brown in Lucky Luke. If there is a fire whole panels will be simply filled with solid red, only the flames will be a different colour, usually white or yellow.

Enough talk let's look at some pictures![/url]
BTW I'm rather new to the forum so I hope that there wasn't a topic like this already...
