Got permission from Forum Leader McSmeag to post this official poll. In this poll, you can choose your favorite BIONICLE comic artist. Christian Zanier was the illustrator for two comics in Graphic Novel #8, particularly Fall and Rise of the Skrall and The Exile's Tale, as well as Graphic Novel #6's Hydraxon's Tale. Vote away! :)

I feel that Randy Elliot helped bionicle a lot due to how she draws especially how it combine fierce looks with the unique touch that only comic books can create.

Elmer Damaso 8D But seriously, I absolutely loved Zanier's work, the realism was breathtaking. However, D'Anda had a certain style that lent itself more to the comic-esque nature, so I'd vote for him.

Sayger's style really fit the years that he did, and that's when I really became a hard-core fan. Elliot would have to be my least favorite. Just because he made so many errors.

Sayger.... just kidding. He's the worst of them all IMO. I hate that style it's looks like it took 5 seconds to draw. I will go with Carlos D'Anda.

Stuart Sayger for the win! His style is so dark and gritty and ridiculously awesome! One of the many amazing parts of the 2006-07 story arc!

100% D'Anda. His artwork was fantastic, and IMO, the absolute best. He really brought the characters to life in a way that none of sucessors replicated.-don't touch my pocket protector

It was basically a toss-up between D'anda, Sayger, and Zanier. All three of them were excellent, but overall for nostalgia's sake I went with D'anda.Also though, I actually really liked all of them. They're different styles suited their different stories so well, I almost had to go back and re-vote man or Elliot just 'cause they weren't getting enough love. :P

Zanier, The Hydraxon mini story features some of the best art in any Bionicle comic.D'anda's style was also great.

I really liked Leigh Gallagher's detailed drawings so i voted him i also liked Stuart Sayger's detailed drawings like the alternate ignition 3 comic cover but i think his other art looked kind of lazy like how the mask of life had a stick man on the front.

All of the artists were pretty good, I went with Gallagher because her art was just so clean and crisp, and the coloring was brighter than Sayger's, but not too bright like previous artists. I never liked Sayger's work much. His art gave the comics a darker feel which really fit the story, but the characters were so slopply. Some of them were no better than stick figures and were barely recognizable.

I really like how crisp and full Christian Zanier's artwork looked. His renditions of Skrall vs. baterra in the snow were simply beautiful, as was the entirety of Hydraxon's Tale. What's more, the way he boldly drew up entirely new designs for Takea sharks, Vorox teeth, and green rock steeds showed a creative mind that wasn't afraid to add something of his own to our shared image of BIONICLE. :)


Plus, as I've mentioned, all his artwork looked really really cool. :P
