Beneath The Pages is a segment that shines a light on the comic industry and the people who make it what it is today. There are many big names out there, from Stan Lee, to Chris Claremont. But there are also those who are still establishing themselves or gaining a steady following. Today, the focus will be on artist Dexter Soy, who’s doing impressive work on the Red Hood And The Outlaws Rebirth series.
Beneath The Pages is a segment that looks at key figures in the comic industry. It’s about shining a light on their work and praising how much they’ve contributed to popular culture. Chris Claremont is one of the most famous names in comics, having created many Marvel characters such as Jubilee, Mystique, Emma Frost and Gambit. His writing with X-Men has cemented his legacy as one of the all time greats.
On this edition of Beneath The Pages, I’m going to put the spotlight on graphic novelist and comic writer, Cullen Bunn. Bunn has a reputation for writing horror and noir stories that have translated into his work in comics. He’s written successful series on characters like Magneto and Sinestro, blurring the lines between black and white and making the reader invest heavily in their journey.
With this edition of Beneath The Pages, I’m focusing on prolific artist and industry heavyweight, Jim Lee. Known for his work at Marvel and DC, Lee has a hyper realistic style that makes his art pop off the page. I first came across his art while reading Batman: Hush. His splash pages enhanced an incredible story and brought new meaning to the story of The Dark Knight.
I’ve decided to introduce another segment called Beneath The Pages, where I’ll talk about someone from the comic industry I admire. This could be a writer, artist, penciller or editor. They are the people who bring characters to life, who create works of art that stand the test of time. The first person I’m going to focus on is Marjorie Liu, who’s known for her work on comics like Dark Wolverine, X-23 and Black Widow.
