    Beijing-based Benjamin Zhang Bin is a comic artist best known for his brightly coloured painted style. He gained popularity in the west due to his stunning cover work for Marvel Comic’s titles X-Men Origins: Emma Frost and New Mutants. He has also written and illustrated manhuas including Orange (2006) and Remember (2004). Not your typical black and white manhua style, it often takes Benjamin much longer to produce work, with Orange rumouring to have taken three years to produce. See more of his illustrations over on his blog.
