    Andrew Ross MacLean is a comic artist, and a founding member of Brand New Nostalgia. His comic book scorecard consists of futuristic thriller Meatspace, viking adventure Head Lopper and otherworldly mystery Department O, among and many others.

    Much of Mr MacLean’s previous titles have been self published or crowd funded and often in collaboration with other creatives. Recently, however, it was announced that in Spring 2015 Dark Horse are set to release his new graphic novel, ApocalyptiGirl: An Aria For End Times. A sizable 96 pages, Mr MacLean grab the reigns of all of the creative duties, right down to the lettering. You can gawk at a preview of ApocalyptiGirl on Comics Alliance.

    Andrew MacLean’s style is, what I am dubbing, organic geometry. Simplified shapes, often very angular and quite exaggerated, push the human figure to unnatural proportions. Yet he keeps them looking fluid, kinetic and most importantly believable.

    You can find Mr MacLean on deviantArt, tumblr, twitter, and facebook.

    Scanning the bookshelves in our offices for some inspiration on an artist to feature for today’s post, Book one of “The Walking Dead” by Robert Kirkman leaped out at me. I just can’t believe that we have yet to write up a feature for this great and current comic book.

    (If you don’t already know) The Walking Dead is a huge franchise published by Image Comics and is one of the most successful comic series of our generation spanning a dedicated TV show (currently airing around the globe), toys & merchandise.

    Robert Kirkman is also best known for “Invincible”, “Battle Pope” and his multitude of collaborations across Marvel and Image comics including “Marvel Zombies”, “Haunt” and “Ultimate X-Men”. Kirkman helped breathe new life into the fledgling comics book industry when he first broke on to the scene and has helped inspire and develop a new generation.

    Robert Kirkman we salute you!

    Today marks the much anticipated release of Batgirl #35. It’s a re-invention of Batgirl from the (Dr Martens) boots up, by the creative team, writer Cameron Stewart, co-writer Brenden Fletcher, artist Babs Tarr, and colorist Jordie Bellaire.

    Succeeding fan favorite Gail Simone would be no easy feat, but as soon as the first image of Batgirl’s new costume was released, the internet went crazy, the likes had never been seen. Within hours there were hundreds of fan art. About a week later there was a blog to showcase the huge amount of artwork and even some cosplay costumes.

    Outside of the bat-mania Cameron Stewart is a very decorated illustrator, with both Eisner Award and Shuster Awards and Eagle Award and Harvey Award nominations. He has worked for all the big comic companies DC, Marvel, and Dark Horse Comics, on titles including B.P.R.D., Catwoman, Batman and Robin, Seaguy, and Seven Soldiers: The Manhattan Guardian.

    In 2007 Mr Stewart released a webcomic called Sin Titulo. The noir mystery-thriller earned him an Eisner Award, and later went on to be published by Dark Horse Comics. Earlier this year it was announced that Cameron Stewart will be illustrating a Fight Club comic. Set to be realsed in 2015, written by the novel’s author Chuck Palahniuk, it will be a direct sequel to the 1999 movie.
