The Great Steranko!
Jim Steranko's influence on comics is undeniable. He came roaring onto the 60's comic scene and injected a whole new modern vibe and immediacy to the comics he drew despite himself being a synthesis of many of the classic styles he'd absorbed as a reader for years. In his style we see Eisner, Kirby, Kane, Krigstein, and more as he created his own distinctive look and atmosphere. But he did precious little comics work relative to his reputation. Since his early days he's often promised to do more than he's delivered (I'm still waiting in vain for Red Tide). But there's no denying his influence. Here's a gallery of his greatest comics work, darn near all of it in fact.
