When you mention Marvel, most people will automatically visualize a piece of Kirby art. A few others might envision Ditko, Romita Sr, etc. But, generally, speaking, the legendary Marvel artists are pretty well established.
Who were the legends for DC?
Not necessarily the artists who were there at the very begining, but the artists that best captured a distinct look and feel for the DCU. I'd like to hear your opinions.
For me, it's Aparo and Perez, but this is from the very biased perspective of a child growing up in the early '80s who first saw their visuals when picking DCU books off the racks.
