5.0 out of 5 stars One of my Top 3 favorites in the series..., May 5, 2007
This review is from: Modern Masters, Vol. 5: Jose Luis Garcia-Lopez (Modern Masters (TwoMorrows Publishing)) (Paperback)
What a great surprise this artist is for me! I bought this interview on the strength of the brilliant cover art- I'm happy to say the interior work is every bit as good.

Highlights here for me...
*The 1st 45 pages- I love everything about these pages. From his pirate-themed work in his early days, to his fantastic influences, to his definitive work for DC and their licensed merchandise, everything about this nearly 1st half of the book is beautiful & inspiring.
*Pencils & inks displayed- it's not just inked work reproduced. I really love JLGL's art in pencil *without* inks, so it's nice to see some of his purely penciled work included. Of course his inked stuff is great as well.

This interview actually goes well with John Buscema's How To Draw Comics The Marvel Way; compared side-by-side, it almost serves as a DC version of that book. It's an interview & not a how-to-draw type work, but JLGL's art is a standard of excellence in regards to definitive depictions of DC characters. The current covers of these books seem similar too, with their variety of major characters & white, yellow, red, and blue color schemes. Both volumes are also similar in physical size, although Marvel Way has more pages.

Unlike my other 2 favorites in the series, this interview includes some color work along with the many pieces of black & white artwork displayed throughout. Jose Luis Garcia-Lopez is highly praised with reason: just check out the picture of Superman & Lois flying high over a cityscape complete with rainbow (p.117) to see what I mean. Truly fantastic pencils!

My other current favorites in the series include Modern Masters, Vol. 7: John Byrne (Modern Masters), and Modern Masters Volume 2: George Perez. Yet they keep on releasing great interviews!
