Full disclosure: I had another artist slated for this spot up until quite recently. I went with a pick that I felt was an important artist in the history of comics, and was excited to spotlight their work. However, when I started collecting pieces, I felt nothing. The work, while incredible, didn’t resonate with me at all.
Tom Scioli’s work resonates with me.
Scioli’s art isn’t just beautiful comic art – it is beautiful art about comics. Everything he draws is, in some way, a commentary on comics, and that is why the work is so powerful. He never draws anything that isn’t aware that it is appearing in a comic, and that self-awareness lends the work humor, personality, and enthusiasm. His work jumps off the page in a way that few others’ can. I hope you enjoy it.
