How about favorite inkers?
I've got six off the top of my head:
Tom Palmer (already mentioned, but maybe the best of the bunch)
Al Williamson (I own the splash from a Totleben swamp thing he did of a mammoth skull that's amazing!)
Dick Giordano (especially over Adams)
Of course many of those are artists themselves so inking their own work is what makes them outstanding. You can see I'm a child of the 60's/70's.
I think of the work he did on Byrne/Stern's Captain America and Starlin's Marvel Team-Up and Marvel 2-In-1 annuals (and Superboy and the Legion of Superheroes # 239)
Am I missing something that would cause him to be overlooked?
But I do think the Adams/Giordano/Janson/Rubenstein style of inking , because it so dominated the appearance of comics for decades, is probably the most dated approach to look at today. I take that back - the second most. The first most dated approach is the needle's eye pattern hatching inks that dominated the look of the majority of Image comics from the 90s.
Incidentally, that's not a shot -I like Adams/Giordano/Janson/Rubenstein ( I personally like Adams and Giordano's inking the best of that lot). I'm just speculating as to why you don't see Rubenstein's name come up on those fan lists online. I remember in the midst of the Image thing, it was not unusual to hear fans knock Jack Kirby as an artist. I pressed one of them for an answer once and he explained that Kirby "didn't have enough lines".
Thankfully, Kirby's art has come back in style again.
