John Cassaday (born 1971) is an American comic book artist and writer, born in Fort Worth, Texas and currently residing in New York City. He is known for having a high level of precision and realism in his work.
A self-taught illustrator, Cassaday studied filmmaking and directed TV news before leaving Texas to pursue a career in comics. His influences include NC Wyeth, classic pulp magazine-culture iconography, and popular music.
I like John Cassaday’s stuff, though I’ve really only read his Planetary work. He strikes me as being a really solid superhero artist like Alan Davis, who he reminds me of. These pictures are all from covers Cassaday did for Legends Of The Dark Knight.
