The new Dark Horse Comics series, Veil, has finally brought him to the attention of American comics fans. His artwork, with it’s unique coloring style, perfectly fits the moody atmosphere of Greg Rucka’s story.

James Stokoe is a self taught artist from Canada who occasionally releases a new issue of his ongoing opus, Orc Stain, from Image Comics. He began his comics career in the mid-2000’s with titles such as Wonton Soup from ONI Press, Popgun Volume 1, and 24Seven from Image. He was banned from the U.S. for a few years for working(drawing comics) here illegally, but he has put those darker days behind him now.

Coming off of increased interest in his work on Orc Stain, and other high-profile projects like Sullivan’s Sluggers(a wildly successful Kickstarter project with writer Mark Andrew Smith), Stokoe was hired to write & draw Godzilla: Half Century War for IDW in 2012, which received high praise from critics. This week sees the release of Avengers 100th Year Anniversary, an imaginary “what if?” future story, which is a perfect type of project for Stokoe to run free with some of Marvel’s most iconic characters.

More Orc Stains are in the works, and fans will wait patiently for their release, because a talent like James Stokoe is certainly not one to be rushed.

James Stokoe sometime posts updates on his site here.

Happy Friday, er Monday?!

I recently discovered Leila Del Duca’s work on the excellent new comic Shutter, published by Image Comics. It’s exciting to see a young artist find the perfect project for their specific set of skills, and watch them tap into their potential month in, and month out.

Leila has been drawing comics since she earned her Bachelors degree in illustration from the Rocky Mountain College of Art and Design in Denver, CO back in 2007. She’s had a prolific career so far, drawing a number of comics including Escape From Terra, The Pantheon Project and Deadskins. She also served as Art Director for the Denver-based anthology Cellar Door in 2011.

She currently lives in Missoula, Montana, and you can follow her on her blog here.

Lauren R. Weinstein is a cartoonist, illustrator, and graphic storytelling teacher based out of New Jersey. Her work is distinct in it’s raw, humorous approach to the human condition, and sometimes ventures into the realm of a dark, surreal head trip. After graduating from Washington University in St. Louis, her first comics would start popping up in various publications like the Seattle Stranger, and gURL.com. Then, a few years, she would debut the critically acclaimed Inside Vineyland, her first collection of comics. Girl Stories, a memoir of her teenage years, and the over-sized Goddess of War, a tale about the God of Thunder’s great-granddaughter’s exploits, would soon follow.

Her work has been featured in The New York Times, Glamour, Nautil.us, Lucky Peach, and Kramer’s Ergot.

She was a recipient of the Xeric Foundation’s grant for self-publishing comics for Inside Vineyland, and her comics have been featured in The Best American Comics book series twice.

She is currently teaching at the School of Visual Arts in New York City, and working on her next graphic novel, a follow-up to Girl Stories.

You can read her latest work Carriers, a very personal webcomic about a very serious health situation with her unborn child, and the life lessons she took away from that experience.

You can keep up with the latest news, and see more of Lauren R. Weinstein’s art on her website.

Tradd Moore broke into the comics scene with the indy series The Strange Talent of Luther Strode, and it’s sequel The Legend of Luther Strode with writer Justin Jordan. His distinct, dynamic style, and liberal use of squash & stretch with his characters has quickly propelled Tradd Moore to the top of the mainstream comics world. He graduated from the Savannah College of Art and Design in 2010, and jumped right into illustrating comics after that.

Today, Tradd Moore has a bonafide hit on his hands with his work on the new, revamped Ghost Rider with writer/artist Felipe Smith for Marvel Comics. He also provides cover art for other Marvel books, like Secret Avengers, and Deadpool. When he can find the time, he continues to work on independent comics like the new Image series Zero.

You can see more artwork, and follow Tradd Moore on his blog.
