Subj: 90s/mullet-era Superman "Second String" Artist appreciation thread

In the 90s, Jurgens and Breeding were the gold standard. IIRC, Tom Grummet and Kerry Gammill got a lot of love as well. But there are quite a few of 90s artists of the triangle area who were amazing, but didn't quite get the hype. In no particular order:

-STUART IMMONEN: arguably one of the most talented artists of his generation, he never got a lot of buzz with his somewhat understated and elegant style. He was on Superman for a LONG time. As a kid, I was sort of indifferent to his work. Now I truly enjoy it! Really beautiful stuff.

-JON BOGDONAVE: every kid's least favorite super-artist back in the day, the "ugly" artist. Except that he was awesome! Now that I get his style, I see how dynamic and fun it is; a cross between Kirby and Shuster.

-BARRY KITSON: as a kid, I thought Kitson was awesome on Superman! And I didn't know why he didn't get more love. He did a great 90s Supes, without going full Leifeld. Did great work on "Dead Again" and the Massacre slugfest and the cool deathtrap issue.

-JACKSON GUICE: as a kid, I thought of him as the "moody" version of Jurgens. But now I see him a really evokative, romantic artist. Maybe the "sexiest" Superman artist.
