American Barbarian Scioli Multiversity Exclusive Columns
Artist August: Tom Scioli [Art Feature]

By Brian Salvatore | Aug 30, 2014 | Columns

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 […]

Artist August: Liz Prince [Art Feature]

By Mike Romeo | Aug 29, 2014 | Columns

Liz Prince’s comics are exactly the type of comics I want to see more of in the world. Her work lies somewhere between the self-reflection of Jeffery Brown and the raucous energy of James Kochalka, examining herself and her surroundings through the lens of a humorist. Her comics are easily digestible while simultaneously impactful and thought provoking, […]

Artist August: Guy Davis [Art Feature]

By Mark Tweedale | Aug 28, 2014 | Columns

It was thanks to “B.P.R.D.” that I was introduced to Guy Davis’s work. And to be honest, I didn’t immediately appreciate it. If you look at my other selections for Artist August, you’ll see his work very different from my usual kind of stuff, and yet he’s my favorite living comics artist. I vividly remember […]

BPRD 117 James Harren Columns
Artist August: James Harren [Art Feature]

By David Harper | Aug 26, 2014 | Columns

I’ve written about James Harren quite a bit for Multiversity in the past, and there’s a simple reason why: very few artists make me excited with their work like Harren does. Primarily in the Mignolaverse, Harren has blown me away every time his work appears with the raw power and energy he can bring to […]

Manapul Speedsters Columns
Artist August: Francis Manapul [Art Feature]

By Brian Salvatore | Aug 25, 2014 | Columns

Francis Manapul first came to my attention as the artist on “Adventure Comics,” doing some of the best Superboy work of all time, especially the parts that dealt with Krypto (I am a well documented dog person). Over the years, both going back to his past work, but especially his work on “The Flash” that […]

Artist August: Eric Powell [Art Feature]

By Mike Romeo | Aug 24, 2014 | Columns

Eric Powell is almost impossible to pin down. He’s an artist who seems to have mastered a wide array of disciplines, which gives him the mobility to tell a wide variety of stories. Whether a page calls for textured pencil drawings, inks, or even full on oils, Powell can do any of it expertly. He’s talented enough to […]

Superman Ming Doyle Columns
Artist August: Ming Doyle [Art Feature]

By Alice W. Castle | Aug 22, 2014 | Columns

I have never, since I first saw it, been able to really describe Ming Doyle’s artwork and just why I love it. In comics, it truly is one of a kind. Her style is immediately recognisable through her strong featured characters and heavily lined, brushed inks which brings a rough yet graceful texture to her […]

Artist August: James Jean [Art Feature]

By David Harper | Aug 21, 2014 | Columns

While not explicitly a comic artist, or even an interior artist in any way, James Jean is an artist I became familiar with because of his comic work. Specifically, his work on the covers of “Fables”, the Vertigo series from Bill Willingham and Mark Buckingham. Jean’s art graced the covers of over 70 issues in […]

Crumb Self Portrait 1986 Columns
Artist August: R. Crumb [NSFW Art Feature]

By Brian Salvatore | Aug 20, 2014 | Columns

R. Crumb is one of the pioneers of the underground “comix” movement, and undoubtedly one of the breakout stars of that scene (along with Harvey Pekar, Crumb has a feature film documenting his life). He is one of the most skilled portrait artists of his generation, having drawn many prominent musicians (typically blues and jazz […]
