Here's a great comic book -'Superman VS Spider-Man'. I remember how excited I was to first see Ross Andru's artwork. Being a big Buscema Brothers fan I was already conditioned to admiring artists that could draw the fucking human body as it is (for the most part). Not using photographs or 'faking it until you make it' like most of these amateur knuckle-draggers working in the industry today. Ross Andru was the real deal!! Man, look how simple the design (elements) in this cover is. It says everything, one part of the image leading your eye (naturally) to the other parts. The mark of a master is the lack of evidence that he's been there. You don't see any struggle in the design of this cover. Ross delivers!
Another badass was Atari Force artist Jose Garcia Lopez. This book sold itself as soon as you looked inside of it (the best aspect about having pros doing your books is a no-hassle, no haggle sale). Jose's compositions, anatomy, action, all were the real school, fuck the hell out of 'Old School'. There is no 'New School' as far as realistic art is concerned (the implication being). If you haven't looked into this series then you're missing an illustrated scifi adventure that feels like you're watching Marvel Comics' unexpected megahit movie 'Guardians of the Galaxy'. The storyline bouncin', the art bouncin', everything bouncin' like a newbie cheerleader on Monday Night Football!!! Good stuff!
I'm George Alan Booker and I created the character known as Zombie Racer and then everyone and his mother started turning it into shitty video games and smelly gym shoes on the Internet so now it's just all over the damn place. Anyway I used to work in comic books, animation, and TV advertising storyboarding. Now I'm returning to comics again with the start of this website. Check the site ledger on the Home Page (Graphic Storytelling.com and Gallery subheadings listings) for samples of my artwork. Follow me on Facebook at www.facebook.com/zombieracer for satirical jokes and political commentary (it's where I chill at).
