2010 DMI Artist Update: Part 3
January 26, 2010
Some unfortunate news was announced a few months back, when writer of Astounding Wolf-man Robert Kirkman let slip in his letter column that the title was ending with issue #25.
This worried me because recently artist Jason Howard had made quit his "other" job to become a full time comic book artist. Ah, but apparently there are plans in the works for another Howard/Kirkman book in the future... and I have my theory to what it might be. *hint* G.G.
Riley Rossmo? What the heck is this guy doing? He's working on Proof, a book that must do simi-well in sells and has picked up it's fair share of fans I know... and then around it's big #25 issue goes off to do a side project Cowboy Ninja Viking. And so Proof will be wrapping up it's first season only to relaunch again with a new #1, with both writer Alex Grecian and Riley returning. Eh, I don't know... Riley does some great stuff.
Finally for this installment, Jamal Igle! He's been riding the Superman book rollercoaster. Supergirl fans have praised him for his work, and in another month the title will hit it's 50th issue. He's been doing great along with his writing partner giving Supergirl the consistency and quality the book had struggled with for a lengthy time. Here's to a great artist and all around nice guy! Congrats Jamal!
