Comic Book Influences 1: Mike McMahon

I want to briefly touch on some of my favourite comic book artists – ones that have influenced my art in some way and whom I aspire to rock as hard as. I’m not going to yammer on, though. It’ll be more like a photo essay. Except drawings instead of photos.

Because if you want to know more about Mike McMahon, you can go to wikipedia or The Art of Mike McMahon website, from whence I swiped some of these images.


“Mutomaniac” was never finished. Pity.


Apparently M.M. got started on Doctor Who comics.


I feel that The Last American miniseries was his best work. It looks like he took a lot of time and care on this one. Look at those lines! Each one has its own character. And a bold yet prudent use of blacks.
