As requested by @payneintheass and @thor_parker82, Today's rate the comic book artist segment features Esad Ribic. Known greatly for his ethereal style of art, Ribic rose to fame depicting stories involving Loki and Thor. The former for depicting Loki in a mini series named after the character in finally taking over Asgard and reflecting on his. The latter where Ribic has been a long running artist for Jason Aaron's long running Thor saga.

For other works his popular for, he was the artist for the Silver Surfer mini series, Silver Surfer: Requiem, which follow the last days of the titular character in his final days and an ode to his lonely character. His most popular is Jonathan Hickman's Secret Wars, where he depicts the last survivors of Earth-616 as they fight a god-like version of Doctor Doom in the remnants of several destroyed universes as they try to repair the multiverse. The climactic event of Hickman's Avengers (and some ways, his Fantastic Four) run.

I'd give him a 7. His faces seem odd looking at times and I'm not really impressed with his sequential paneling but I love the aesthetic of his art. It never fails to be epic looking or beautiful to look at.

9.His aestheticism is unique but occasionally some facial structures looks rather off.

8.5-9/10 for me. His art is great but I will agree that his faces can be a bit weird at times.

One of my most favorite artists of all time. His characters, backgrounds, landscapes and action work are some of the best of all time. He is in my Top 5 of all time and all of those people are artists who deserve a 10 imo, so 10/10.

@life_without_progress: Thank you for making this series. I didn't realize how many great artists there were. Lenil Francs Yu is one of my favorites thanks to you.

I voted 9 after doing a quick Google search of the still images. I like his more detailed style than Alex Ross.

9 always has perfectly detailed art but sometimes the faces can be off putting.

Esad’s work is really beautiful, particularly that initial God of Thunder run. I’d give him a solid 9, maybe even 9 and a half. Def one of the top modern artist going today

I don't like painted artwork for mainstream comics. and his interior pencils are OK but nothing that I haven't seen done better before.
