16 Steve Rude

(December 31, 1956) is a comics artist that takes a big influence from Alex Toth and Jack Kirby. His lines and story telling are amazing, and in 1981, Rude and writer Mike Baron (Florida Man) created Nexus, an independent science fiction comic book with a large supporting cast. I rememberhte first issue had a record in it, one of those flexible things… for the series, Rude designed many distinctive alien races, including the Thunes, the Amphibs, the Quattros, the Giz, the Demons, and others.
His work for DC Comics included collaborating with writer Dave Gibbons on the World’s Finest miniseries for DC in 1990. DC Comics writer and executive Paul Levitz has noted that Rude’s artwork “plays on Norman Rockwell’s Americana, while his sleek sequential storytelling owes a debt to the work of Alex Toth.”
