With tonight being All Hallows’ Eve, it seems only too appropriate to feature an illustrator who is becoming synonymous with modern horror comics, Tyler Crook.
The Oregonian actual started in video games, producing art for sports games MLB: The Show, Gameday, and Gamebreaker. After twelve years as a 3D modeler, Crook decided to go in a different direction. He partnering with writer Philip Gelatt, and in 2011 released the graphic novel Petrograd. Published by Oni Press, the historical thriller marked Crook’s first step into the comic industry, and almost immediately landed a regular spot as the artist for B.P.R.D. Hell on Earth. Thus beginning his foray into fear.
Starting strong, just one year later he picked up the 2012 Russ Manning Most Promising Newcomer Award. He has since worked on titles including Witchfinder, Badblood, and 6th Gun. He also contributed to the Dark Horse relaunch of pioneering horror magazine, Creepy. Keeping the momentum going, his latest work on Harrow County has been absolutely masterful.
