Underappreciated Genius? Or Accurately Appraised Genius?

Eric Canete is recognized as a top name in his field, landing plenty of high-profile gigs often on marquee titles. But he’s somehow overlooked at the same time. He has his fans, for sure. But his isn’t one of the names you hear tossed around when nerds gather to talk on “the best.”

I can’t find a reason for that. He is, without a doubt in my mind, one of the greatest talents working in comics. His work is stylized but rarely over-stylized. There are plenty of applications I wouldn’t pick him for, but in his lane he’s untouchable. Here’s a link to an auction of a Canete commission. It’s gorgeous and, if my predictions come to pass, it will also be a great investment.
