Although writers might get top-billing on comics credits page, the real people turning those writers' words from scrip to actual comics are the artists. And comics is in the middle of an unprecedented renaissance of dynamic and varied talent, with a treasure trove of new talent coming into their own in comics. For this week's iFanboy Upstarts, we turn our attention to artist Joe Quinones.
New England artist Joe Quinones burst onto the comics scene big with his Green Lantern story in the pages of DC's Wednesday Comics written by Kurt Busiek. Although he'd made his comics debut a year prior in the pages of Teen Titans Go!, his work on Wednesday Comics made people wake up and pay attention the artist. After that he did interior work on Amazing Spider-Man, Batman/Superman and Joker's Asylum II: Harley Quinn while becoming an in-demand cover artist for both DC, Marvel as well as Dark Horse with their Star Wars titles. It was recently revealed that Quinones is working with Paul Dini on a Zatanna/Black Canary graphic novel that is aiming for a 2012 release, and I'm already chomping at the bit to see it.
