As requested by @vishop_, Today's Rate The Comic Book Artist segment features Marc Silvestri. The founder of Top Cow, Silvestri rose into prominence as an artist for X-Men and it's Wolverine spin-off. He would then become one of the leading comic creators in the independent comic book company Image and eventually, Top Cow. He would then become a co-creator of popular Top Cow characters such as Witchblade and Jackie Estacado, The Darkness.

Personally, I'm not really much of a fan of Silvestri's art style because it didn't really grow that well for me past the 90s. There's a certain epic, cinematic feel to his art but it's muddled by too many lines and dragged down by questionable anatomy at times.

10/10. Silvestri is going to go down as one of the all time greats.

I like his art. It reminds me quite alot of Michael Turner's art really. It still has something 90s to it but it's not bad. An 8/9 for me.

7. Some of his drawings (those ones of Hulk and Estacado) look really good, but I agree with your criticisms of excessive lines and weird anatomy. The feet in that X-Men drawing are really off.

9. He is one of the few artists from X-Men and Wolverine who is underrated.

@vishop_:

And that's part of the reason I gave him 7 rather than 6. There're some awesome images in his work, and whilst I don't really dislike anything I've seen of his, I'm not a massive fan of his drawing style.

I mean, his style may have degraded over the last few decades but he was real good during 90's.

Well, I'm not saying it's bad, it's just not really my thing, you know?

Always loved his stuff. I'm quite fond of his run on Uncanny X-Men.
