Mark Schultz is one of the small handful of creators whose work I seek out pretty much anywhere that I can find it, and I’ve been trying to build a comprehensive collection of his comics work for years. To that end, I was surprised to find that the TwoMorrows Modern Masters: Mark Schultz volume that I had pre-ordered arrived last night. I didn’t have as much time to begin reading as I might have liked, but after some interesting discussion surrounding his youth and creative influences in the introduction, I’m just now hitting the Xenozoic portion of the interview and I can’t wait for the insights he’ll have to share there.
Like, for example: Hannah Dundee ‘has a roman nose’.
Unfortunately, about that time I looked up at the clock and saw that it was about time for me to hit the hay for the night — but I hope to get a little more time in the Xenozoic Era again tonight. So far I’ve either seen, or own reproductions of a lot of the art used for this volume already, but that doesn’t make owning this volume any less worth it – and if you haven’t encountered it before, then this release is probably one of the best ways for you to jump in with both feet. Prepare to be floored.
