    Default Mèdici’s Garden

    Welcome to Mèdici’s Garden!


    The Mèdici family was a powerful and influential Florentine family from the 14th to 18th century that served as patron to many famous Renaiisance artists, scholars and poets.

    Here in Mèdici’s Garden the artists and writers of the Showcase can share their thoughts, ideas, stories, and insights. You can hold open, ongoing discussions with each other without the need for or the confinement of a specific thread topic.

    So pull up a chair, enjoy a warm cappuccino or a cool fresca, and get creative!

    Nice idea, Matt. I'll pass on the Fresca, though.

    Here's a question for my fellow artists: Who's your favorite artist working in comics right now?

    If I had to pick one...hmmmm...I'll get back to you on that...

    here's another topic for debate...

    How many of you are reading European comics, or would consider reading them?

    I'm not currently reading any...but some of my favorite artists are foreigners.
    Good examples: I love Moebius and Herge (Tintin guy) and Simone Bianchi is pretty good, Frank Quitely is amazing, as is Steve McNiven (he's Canadian) and Leinil Yu. Gary Frank is from England. So I guess while I don't follow any foreign comics, almost all my favorite comic artists hale from somewhere other than the States...r

    But I understand Fresca goes well with rum.

    I really loved Aja's work on Immortal Iron Fist. And I'm enjoying Skottie Young's take on the Wizard of Oz.

    I'm not. Due more to lack of awareness and interest than anything else.

    I'd certainly consider it, although I'm not exactly the biggest comic buyer around to begin with. Something really unique though? Sure.

    Probably a toss-up between Frank Quitely and J.H. Williams.

    Simone Bianchi comes close, though.

    Oh, and I forgot Olivier Coipel, who's French. He's just been nominated for an Eisner for Thor, too, so congrats to him. Well deserved.

    couple of examples I posted them in a different thread... but here they are again. Maybe it's fun to note, there aren't a lot of superheroes in European comics.

    With European comics I mean mainland, not Britain, since they follow the American model rather than the Belgian-French model.

    Nicolas Eymerich - which surprisingly is set in the past for a large part of its story.



    Order of the Dragon-knights - Fantasy comic. Visually closer to mainstream american comics.



    Powerplay - World War II

    Golden Age - set in the Golden Age of France.



    Canari - Mayan T&A



    Angela - Western (not a series by the way, just a one shot 56 pages)



    As examples of the various genres and styles that can be found in mainland European comics.

    Those look freakin' amazing. It makes me want to learn French just to understand the dialogue better.

    There is a Korean artist name Min-Woo Hyung, who did all of the Priest books. My favorite by far.
    I also enjoy Tim Sale, David Mack (don't care the kerfuffle with the mock-up cover, this guy has genuine talent), Alex Maleev, and I wish Mike Mignola drew more than pin-ups and covers now- I loved his sequential stuff.

    I'd consider it, I don't know much about them.
