120 page Trade Paperback - By Todd Dezago and Eric Nolen-Weathington
The Print Edition is SOLD OUT, but the Digital Edition will be available soon for $5.95!
The latest volume of the Modern Masters series looks at the life and
work of one of today’s top comic-book artists, Mike Wieringo. Like the
title character of his first major job, The Flash, Wieringo hit the
comic book industry running. Armed with a fresh, unique style all his
own—merging elements of manga with the power of the Marvel comics of
his youth—he quickly became a fan-favorite. His work featuring Robin
and Superman, Spider-Man and the X-Men—not to mention the creator-owned
world of Tellos—has cemented him as one of the top artists in the
business. And his recent run on Fantastic Four ranks among the best in
the title’s long and prestigious history. Now Todd Dezago and Eric
Nolen-Weathington give you an inside look at the artist’s life and
career! This 120-page volume presents his most comprehensive,
career-spanning interview to date, and is jam-packed with tons of rare
and unpublished artwork, including an 8-page full color gallery. It’s
the ultimate look at the work of a true Modern Master: Mike Wieringo!

Wieringo's first major job was The Flash, and his exciting introduction
to the comic book field was followed quickly by drawings of major
characters from Superman and X-Men to Fantastic Four. But don't expect
the usual reproductions of comics in this celebration: it includes
sketches accompanied by an essential interview with Wieringo discussing
perspectives, drawing challenges, achievements and comic book history
and provides many important keys to understanding Wieringo's works and
his place in the industry. A 'must' for any collection strong in comic
book history and artists.
