This week we honor another Spanish artist, the emerging star on the all-new Spider-Woman, Javier Rodriguez! Now, Javier has been around for a while, but he’d been working mainly as a colorist here in the U.S. until recently. He worked closely with fellow Spanish artist Marcos Martin on titles like Batgirl: Year One, Captain America 65th Anniversary Special, Amazing Spider-Man, and the earlier issues of Mark Waid’s Daredevil run, which he would stay on after Martin left.  I was already a huge fan of the artists on that series, including Martin, Paolo & Joe Rivera, Chris Samnee, and now I’m adding Javier Rodriguez to that list; sort of sad that I don’t pay closer attention to the colorist until they branch out into penciling/inking, but I know I’m not alone in that deficiency!

Javier had a few assignments as penciller for Marvel before getting a chance to fully showcase his talents in the mini-series AXIS: Hobgoblin, which earned him his chance to be part of “relaunching” the new redesigned Spider-Woman AKA Jessica Drew character. Looking at his work on Spider-Woman, I’m super impressed with the way he choreographs his panels; it’s truly inventive, fluid, and “Eisner-esque”! 

If you’re interested in checking out more of Javier Rodriguez’ work, you can follow him on twitter here, and you can check out his work on the recent issues of Spider-Woman #5-10, and the upcoming new #1 this November.
