    So yeah like everyone else here, I love Richard Corben's work and style, a true great of the medium. I absolutely love the way he draws corpses and voluptuous women.

    I loved his Hellblazer jail story.

    The first time I encountered Corben's work-- which was probably Hellblazer-- I couldn't stand it. Now, I can't get enough. He's one of the finest artists to ever grace the medium, and he seems to get better with age. I was re-reading his Poe and Lovecraft adaptations that Marvel put out a few years ago as Haunt of Horror MAX the other night, and I just marvelled at his storytelling and atmosphere (and the fact that for a brief period of time Marvel would actually put out a book like that).

    Corben's "Fall of the House of Usher" concluded nicely with its second issue. His recent Poe adaptations are surprisingly good and I'm even more excited for "The Raven and The Red Death" in October now.

    His edition of Creepy Presents... was fantastic! I'm a huge Corben fan so it's hard to pick just one story as my favorite, I like his werewolf stories and Mutant World is of course a joy.

    Rowlf (first appeared as an underground, then serialized/continued in Heavy Metal) is one of my fave Corbenworx.

    I have the original underground of that, his Fantagor work was great. And i always loved Den and all the Heavy Metal work. I would highly recommend his recent Ragemoor comic from DH.

    Awesome. I haven't seen very much of his work since his stint on Conan, but I really like it.

    Corben's great! He's one of those artists who can take a sub-standard script and make it sing with the way he brings it to life. And with a truly stellar writer... complete magic!

    Love his work. Been reading it since Den. I've not been disappointed yet.
