Today's rate the comic book artist segment features Skottie Young. One of my favorite artists in the industry as of today (although he's mostly been writing more than drawing nowadays), Young is well known for his cartoon inspired yet detailed character designs and storytelling. He rose to fame doing the art for Eric Shanower's acclaimed Marvel Comics comic book adaptation of Oz: The Wonderful Wizard Of Oz and it's sequels. He is also known for making plenty of Marvel comic book covers that feature the company's characters being babies and doing plenty of goofy looking stuff.

His most recent works as an artist are a volume of Rocket Raccoon and an Image Comics title following a young girl who was transported and trapped in a fantasy world for nearly 3 decades stuck in a child's body. This leaves her to mentally damaged and proceeding to violently attack everything in her sight. It is known as I Hate Fairyland.

You're in Wally West mode again. Sweet.

7. I'm not familiar with his work, but I like the cartoonish, yet detailed style from those pictures.

I want to check his work out now. Thanks.

7.5-8/10 for me. I like how cartoonist it looks, don't think it fits all characters but when it does, it's great.

Going with an 8. Not what comes to mind when you think "comic art", but he's mastered that overly cartoonish look.

8. He's very good at his style, which doesn't fit every kind of story, but then again, why should it?

I'm not even familiar with his work but from these pictures alone I'd say a 9. So expressive, able to say so much in so little.

@life_without_progress: He had some rough patch when it comes to Marvel Comics. Jeph Loeb's infamous Wolverine run and Jason Aaron's Thanos (origin) are all the books in his bag. Can't say about his DC comics. But i guess he did some good work with Judge Dredd , Batman and Lobo during 90's.

I give him about an 8. The dude has mastered his craft and style to a T. It may not be everyone’s cup of tea, but it’s unique and he’s good at it. And when he’s not doing the baby stuff, his art can be insane. The dude has drawn one of my favorite X-23 pictures ever and it’s a complete 180 his baby stuff.

Do you happen to have it? I'm curious to see it.

Can't say I'm a fan. there's been better artists who draw in a quirky cartoon style.

@magian: Me neither. I saw that and said hell no. It’s not cute. That’s something that would come out of a well and haunt me for 7 days until I died or something.

He's a great cartoonist imo and has a unique comic book vision. Definitely a great artist for more cartoonish stories and for cover work also.

7/10
