PABLO MARCOS and THE SPIDER!
It's official! The legendary Pablo Marcos is THE SPIDER's new illustrator! I can hardly contain myself!
Pablo has been one of my favorite artists since I was about twelve years old. His masterfully moody pages from Marvel's Tales of the Zombie horror magazine held me spellbound. It quickly became my favorite series, as I was sort of growing up out of the mundane super-hero comics of that era.
Imagine my excitement two decades later when I actually got to meet Pablo, briefly during his visit to the Tekno Comix offices, and shake his hand. That was a great day for me.
Facebook was instrumental in bringing us together again, this time as artistic partners. I rather shyly pitched the notion of THE SPIDER to Pablo and he completely astonished me by enthusiastically agreeing to be the new illustrator. I can hardly express how much this means to me.
Having artists Tom Floyd on Ki-Gor the Jungle Lord, Ver Curtiss for Black Angel, and now my long-time hero Pablo Marcos drawing THE SPIDER, I'm a very happy writer.
