The line "Windsor-Smith's design work produced some of the most original and important comic book characters since Stan Lee and Jack Kirby created the Marvel Universe." seems a mite excessive. Any external support ? -- Beardo 19:23, 29 April 2006 (UTC)
- I have always liked Windsor-Smith, and at times, considered him my favorite comics artist, but this above quoted statement is surely POV (and definately not MY POV!!!)Odysseybookshop 16:31, 1 July 2006 (UTC)
- Speaking of which, can anyone replace some of the art in the cover gallery, which is all represented by later work (which in my view is inferior), with some other, earlier pieces...at least this would give a balanced view of a three decade + career.
- Do we need permission ? Aren't they covered by fair use ? Though in fact - are all these Valiant covers within fair use ? -- Beardo 21:08, 23 September 2006 (UTC)
Fair use rationale for Image:Unity 000-00fc.jpg
Image:Unity 000-00fc.jpg is being used on this article. I notice the image page specifies that the image is being used under fair use but there is no explanation or rationale as to why its use in this Wikipedia article constitutes fair use. In addition to the boilerplate fair use template, you must also write out on the image description page a specific explanation or rationale for why using this image in each article is consistent with fair use.
Please go to the image description page and edit it to include a fair use rationale. Using one of the templates at Wikipedia:Fair use rationale guideline is an easy way to insure that your image is in compliance with Wikipedia policy, but remember that you must complete the template. Do not simply insert a blank template on an image page.
If there is other fair use media, consider checking that you have specified the fair use rationale on the other images used on this page. Note that any fair use images lacking such an explanation can be deleted one week after being tagged, as described on criteria for speedy deletion. If you have any questions please ask them at the Media copyright questions page. Thank you.

To Index? or not to Index?
Any thoughts on whether an index of BWS comics and other publications (prints/portfolios) should be either on this page or a linked page? Surprisingly, there's nothing of the kind available that I can see. The GCD entries are fairly complex to navigate, the Marvel index ditto (and obviously only geared to their publications, so incomplete). His own site dosn't even have a full list of either portfolios or comics. All considerations welcome, Cheers! Archiveangel (talk) 23:53, 8 December 2009 (UTC)
