    Modern Masters Volume 8: Walter Simonson

    The newest Modern Masters interview spotlights an artist who burst on the scene in the early 1970s with an imaginative updating of DC Comics¿ vintage Manhunter character. Though he later returned to DC for such projects as a continuation of Jack Kirby¿s New Gods characters, Simonson remains best known for a 1980s stint at Marvel Comics, where his dynamic illustrations revitalized such titles as X-Factor, Thor, and Fantastic Four. Simonson also scripted the latter two, leading to a second career writing comics illustrated by others. As shown by the comics pages, character sketches, and other rare drawings that accompany the interview, Simonson¿s approach is ideally suited to superhero stories, expressing a power perfect for the genre, coupled with design sense that sets his work apart from his peers¿. Three decades after entering the field, he remains as active as ever¿ currently he¿s drawing Michael Moorcock¿s sword-and- sorcery character Elric for DC¿so this volume may prove more popular than prior series entries.
