Sergio Toppi (1932-2012.) Toppi was an Italian comic book artist known for his beautiful imagery and masterful ink work. Many of comics dealt with historical or mythological subject matter. He is Italian and his work seldom makes it over to the US, so finding specific examples is tough. Toppi has been and will always be a big influence on me and my work. His control of shapes and textures is fascinating.

Sadly I woke up this morning to news that he passed away. He had a very long and illustrious career comparable to the likes of the late Moebius. Luckily during the last leg of his life he worked with publisher Mosquito to create a very large collection of work. These books can be purchased through Stuart Ng Books and I recommend you pick up 1 or 2 to add to your collection.
