Evan Dorkin

1. Jim Woodring
2. Jack Cole -- there are books on Cole but they're short and splinter his career, Cole deserves something massive and overarching, covering Plastic Man and the splash page era as well as the girlie gags and the Playboy work.
3. Drew Friedman
4. John Severin
5. Jack Kirby -- the King of disserved comic book creators as far as having a great, big, beautiful, substantial book goes. I hope I live to see a real book on his work and art unleashed someday, a coffee table-bursting slab of crackling energy with the names Theakston and Evanier nowhere near the spine or cover.
