The Best Comic Artists In The World Talk About Their Working Practices And Studio Spaces
Tripwire‘s editor-in-chief Joel Meadows has spent the last 30 years covering the best in comics and genre, and his Masters of Comics is a lavish paperback published by Insight Editions that takes a look at the studios and work practices of the world’s finest comic artists and illustrators…
Yes, Joel Meadows is Tripwire – and vice versa. But this magazine’s editor-in-chief is also so much more. For over three decades, Meadows has contributed work to such heavyweights as Time, The Times, The Sunday Times, The Telegraph, Financial Times, The Guardian, Guinness World Records, and The Observer. He has also written extensively about comics, film, TV, and popular culture for publications like Playboy, Esquire, Variety, Empire, and others. In addition, his photography has appeared in places like Playboy Japan, SFX, Full Bleed, and Amateur Photographer, among other outlets. He is also the author of Studio Space, a book on comic artists and their workspaces that came out from Image Comics back in 2008.
That book brings us to his much-anticipated follow-up of a sorts, Masters of Comics, which is being celebrated at a talk and signing for the Society of Illustrators at 8:00 p.m. on October 5, 2019, featuring a selection of the artists spotlighted in the book including Rafael Albuquerque (American Vampire, Eight), Bill Sienkiewicz (Legion TV show, Elektra Assassin), Yuko Shimuzu (The Unwritten, New York Times) and Walter Simonson (Ragnarok, Thor, Manhunter), Dan Panosian (cover artist 100 Bullets, The Punisher), and Dave Johnson (artist, X-Men, Logan) talking about their working practices and their studios.
“I am very excited that we have arranged such a fantastic array of creators to celebrate the book at such a prestigious place in New York,” Meadows said.
