As requested by @thor_parker82, Today's Rate The Comic Book Artist segment features the legendary comics creator himself, Walter Simonson. Starting off his career straight out of college with the Science Fiction saga known as Star Slammers, Simonson is best known today and most celebrated for his Thor run which was written and partly drawn by himself and is considered the the definitive Thor comic of today for introducing fan favorite and acclaimed characters, concepts and arcs. Simonson is known for working on several other titles in Marvel and DC Comics such as Orion and X-Factor as well as independent comic book companies. To my knowledge, his last known would be Ragnarök, featuring a very different take on the God Of Thunder.

I'd personally give him an 8. Simonson knows how to make a lot of things epic and I honestly enjoy the proportions of the characters he draws.

Ranking them as a whole is tricky because those three have some of the best work ever while also having some of the worst ever, so yeah, tricky.

7. His art is rough and crusty in some places but overall he's decent.

That would be amazing, especially the latter, it seems right up his alley.

Up there with Jack Kirby and John Byrne as the greatest artist/writers of all-time.
