Speech Bubbles: Comics & Graphic Novels
Comic Fan Talk About Comic Books!
a question by Nov 10, 2010
I asked a friend this question once and immediately realized that it polarized people, but I'm curious as to what the prevailing popular opinion is, so I'm asking it anyway. Who is more important in the world of comics... the writer or the artist?

Well they are often the same Person like Herge or Carl Barks who are two Masters of the Genre but then you also have artists who really shine with a certain writers and not others so I do not think there is any clear cut anwer to this one.

Hmmm.....since comics is an art based medium, I would say art can carry a title even though the story may be lacking. Proof of this was recently shown in the early 2000's Dan Jurgens run on THOR with John Romita Jr. as artist. Although the names Azzarello, Miller, Claremont, Smith and Moore can easily carry a title, I think art has a lot to do with a comic's sales and popularity. Example: Metabarons.

The more proper question is: Which is more important to the success of a comic, the artwork or the dialog? My answer to this question is that in most cases it is the artwork, for it is possible for superior artwork to overcome inferior dialog but it is extremely difficult for superior dialog to uplife inferior artwork.
