This category surprised me because I never really think about the artists as much as I do about the writers. My shortlist came down to Dave Gibbons for Watchmen, John Totleben and Stephen Bissette for Swamp Thing, Frank Miller's work on Daredevil, and Alan Davis for just about everything. And I'm going to pick Davis for his fantastic work on Miracleman, D.R. and Quinch and , of course, Captain Britain.
Mr Davis is a guest at the Birmingham Comic Con in a couple of weeks' time and I hope to get him to sign this cover for me.
