A Favorite Artist: Humberto Ramos

I know i won't get a lot of supporters on this (or maybe i will?) but Humberto Ramos is my absolute favorite artist these days (and i love him in combination w/ Jenkins writing). I've tried to collect as much of his work as i can, and can't wait for the upcoming "Revelations" mini (Ramos and Jenkins are teaming up again after the demise of Spectaculary Spider-Man). Anyone who's a fan should def pick up "Spectacular Spider-Man: The Hunger", "Spectacular Spider-Man: Countdown", and "Peter Parker Spider-Man: Return of the Green Goblin" in trades. All 3 are great stories (with great pencils/coloring) IMO.

I wonder what else Ramos is working on outside of/in addition to the new Revelations mini (PS the revelations preview pages look awesome... check them out.

I've googled "Humberto Ramos" and you don't get a whole lot really worth anything... wonder if this dude has a website i don't know about?

Zilla is not my real name.

I'm from Tejas living in VA. I'm married w/ 2 dogs. I'm an IT security consultant cranking the wheel for a big consulting firm in "real" life.

I watch the History Channel, Nat'l Geo, TLC, Mil Channel, ESPN and NFL Network, CourtTV (forensic files, etc.) and the Cartoon Network (love Genndy T's Samurai Jack and Clone Wars Adventures). My taste in movies: Gladiator, Last Samurai, Braveheart, Godfather, Tarantino (whatever), Kung-Fu (whatever), Westerns, Top Gun, Big Lebowski.

I love the outdoors and bs'ing around w/ my dogs.

In addition to being a comics junkie, i'm also a sports junkie especially when it comes to the Texas Longhorns and the Dallas Cowboys.
