Last Saturday, 5 October, Tripwire editor-in-chief Joel Meadows gathered with legend Walter Simonson (Thor, Ragnarok), renowned artist and painter Bill Sienkiewicz (Elektra, Daredevil), acclaimed illustrator Yuko Shimuzu (The Unwritten, New York Times), popular comic artist Dan Panosian (X-men) and one of the best modern comic cover artists Dave Johnson (100 Bullets, Punisher) to talk about Masters of Comics at New York’s world -renowned Society Of Illustrators. Here’s an audio recording of the event for all those people who missed it…
Readers are invited into the studio spaces of some of the most popular and prolific comic artists in the world. Through dynamic photography and exclusive interviews, Masters of Comics offers a rare, personal look at these artists’ unique creative environments—spaces in which some of the greatest comics and graphic novels of the last fifty years took shape. Curated by Joel Meadows, editor of Tripwire Magazine, the book includes chapters on such legends as Milo Manara (The Ape, Click), Mike Kaluta (The Shadow ), Walter Simonson (Thor, Fantastic Four), and more.
The first in a series focusing on artists at work in a variety of mediums and industries, Masters of Comics offers a glimpse “behind the veil,” shining new light on the artistic process. It’s the ultimate backstage pass for comic fans, as well as a wonderful learning tool for aspiring artists wishing to learn from the greats.
