In the forward to DC’s 1989 collection The Art of Walter Simonson, Howard Chaykin wrote of his meeting Walter Simonson in 1972 and his observations of his art:
“His stuff was the most stylistically complete and consistent work of any of our generation, at the time. Period. While most of us were struggling with drawing problems, Simonson, had a grasp of drawing systems, his academic underpinnings serving him in extraordinary stead. Exclamation point.”
