Readers' Write (15): Who's the Best...Sub-Mariner Artist AND Version of a Character With Multiple Versions?
While Karen and Doug are on vacation in January, our readers have been entrusted with carrying on the daily conversations. Today's "Who's the Best?" is a do-it-yourselfer. As we've done in the past, the first commenter gets to pick today's topic of conversation.
Generally speaking, "Who's the Best?" is for historical topics. For example, in the past we've started conversations such as "Who's the Best -- Thor Artist?" and "Who's the Best -- Frankenstein Monster?" Start a conversation that is broad enough to elicit an ongoing conversation, and that even might lend itself to tangential musings.
Thanks for holding it down for us!
I'm going to exercise a bit of editorial control today. Reader M.P. brought up the topic of the Sub-Mariner, which we discussed at length a few years ago. However, frequent commenter Rip Jagger took M.P.'s mention of Jack Kirby's treatment of the character and turned the conversation toward Who's the Best... Sub-Mariner Artist? That's a worthy topic, and one I don't think we've covered in the past.
Then our pal Osvaldo Oyola suggested a topic that plays off one we ran about 18 months ago when he asked Who's the Best... Version of a Character With Multiple Versions?
So that's what we're doing today -- two topics for you to mull over. Thanks, everyone, for your participation over these weeks in January. Karen and I return with new material next Saturday!
