Vaughan & Chiang's "Paper Girls" Builds a Familiar Yet Disconcerting World
Every day this month I’m going to feature the work of a great artist, only instead of me picking the artist to feature, they will be picked by their peers, fellow professional comic book artists who are picking out artists (from the past and present) who they think deserve special attention. Do note that most artists I asked about this gave me multiple answers and I picked out one choice out of a number of suggestions, so these are not definitive answers, like “Artist X likes Artist Y and he thinks all other Artists are terrible!” Here is an archive of the artists featured so far!
Pete’s pick is Matt Camp!
Matt Camp’s first major comic book work came with the 2006-07 mini-series for Dark Horse Comics called Zero Killer (along with writer Arvid Nelson).
As you can tell, Camp’s style is noted for his attention to detail. He’s quite devoted to every little detail in his work, even the backgrounds. He does a lot of research.
Slightly more recently, he did a couple of fill-in issues on DC’s Infinity Inc. (man, for a series that was going nowhere fast, that series sure had a ton of talent on it, didn’t it? Including the guy who gave Camp the nod, Pete Woods).
Here’s three pages from Infinity Inc. #6…
And here’s three from Infinity Inc. #7…
I don’t know what current comic book work Camp is working on, but with his attention to detail and strong character work, he looks like a real up and comer.
You can check out his blog here.
Thanks to Pete for the pick!
