Jim Steranko

A new project that's in the works is requiring a revisiting of a lot of Sterankos work. He made his mark in the late 60's with his Marvel work. Most notably SHIELD, which was their James Bond style character. Sterankos work introduced psychedelic imagery to the comics world like no one else had. You can tell he was referencing Filmore posters that were being done at the time.

The best part is, he was also an author, a magician, jazz guitarist and would later go on to contribute conceptual design to Spielberg and Coppola, who were huge fans.

He also has to be one of the slickest dressed of any of the former Marvel guys I've ever seen.
