The Art of Humberto Ramos

deadp

Of all the reasons to like comic books, the art is most of it. If you don’t like comics for the art, why do you like comics in the first place? Go read a book with no pictures, loser!

And while many great artists stretch the limits of what it seems like the infamous medium would normally do, some strike that perfect balance of dynamism, fluidity, and style. This is what legendary comics’ artist Humberto Ramos does. While keeping with the splash page frenzy of the 90s, where style was held waaay over substance, Ramos still manages to tell a story with each and every panel.

Below is a small collection of his art. See what you think.
