There's several of them here

Sometimes he draws like Kirby.  Sometimes he draws like Sal Buscema.  Sometimes he draws like John Buscema or Ditko.  I don't see how he's "instantly recognizable" when he's mimicking so many other folks.  It seems very reminiscent of Rich Buckler.

My pick is Al Williamson. Almost universally recognized as one of the great illustrators in the tradition of Alex Raymond, his deliberate pace and health problems led to him spending the last two decades of his career inking books like Daredevil and Spider-Girl. His delineation of John Romita, Jr's pencils may have been beautiful, but a better industry would have found a way to make sure an artist of Williamson's legend had the time and budget to draw more of the kind of work he loved and excelled at.
