The Many Ghosts Of Joe Staton!
Joe Staton is probably my favorite artist in comics. His work is always vivid and lively and attractive. He knows how to tell stories, and now he has done so for decades working for DC primarily, but also working on his own here and there. He's currently the artist on the comic strip Dick Tracy, bringing a great look to a strip which has languished artistically for too long.
I first became a fan of Staton's when he was a workhorse for Charlton Comics, doing E-Man, Space 1999, Wheelie and the Chopper Bunch, and other projects. He created many an inviting and evocative cover for the company too, some of them gracing the ghost books. Here's a gallery of his creepy covers.
