As requested by @ghostodoofus2, Today's Rate the Comic Book Segment features Gene Colan. He is probably one of the most renowned comic book artists of Golden Age and Silver Age era. He started his career in 1944 by co-creating with several artists for an aviation-themed anthology series Wings Comics. He has collaborated with several creators down the ages on penciling and co-creating some cult-satiric series like Steve Gerber's Howard The Duck, classic horror comic series Marv Wolfman's The Tomb of Dracula, Gerry Conway's Batman, Stan Lee's Captain America, Stan Lee's and Gerry Conaway's Daredevil and Roy Thomas's Doctor Strange. He was also inducted into the Will Eisner Comic Book Hall of Fame in 2005 for his lifelong comic book artist career.

9. It's so wholesome. I don't remember his art when I think of the greats, but it's amazing.

I never heard of Wings Comics. Thanks for continuing to post background info on these artists. I appreciate it. And thanks @life_without_progress for setting up the format.

Don't know much about his work but from what you have posted I'd say at least an 8.

Yeah, it's been quite some time I am doing this and it's actually helping me knowing things of good artists. Thanks for acknowledging this.

Definitely 10. great artist especially for the horror genre, his work on Tomb of Dracula was classic. I also liked his work on Batman and the 90s TMNT Adventures.
