Mike Vosburg is one of that generation of comic talent who were breaking in as I was becoming aware of the field. Those guys were not much older than I was myself, and it was neat to watch them grow and develop as talents as the years and projects rolled by. Vosburg is among the most proficient, a storyteller who developed a style which became increasingly distinctive and attractive in its own right, but never at the cost of the tale it told.
It seems that Mike Vosburg is leaving comics behind (or perhaps they left him). This post from his blog is most disheartening, as it means one of the finest of comic talents has hung it up. How is it editors cannot find work for a talent of this caliber? But I'm sure (at least I hope) we'll keep seeing great images form the talented Mr.Vosburg.
Here's a gallery of his work over the years. He sure can draw beautiful dames.
