Comic Book Writers and Artists to Follow on Twitter

Leave a comment

Since February, I’ve been lucky enough to work for MakeUseOf, a techie site full of interesting articles about the Internet, iOS, Winodws, social media, future tech – and loads more. Okay, so what has that got to do with Marvel? Well, naturally, I extend my fandom to other writing projects. So I present to you a few articles that might be of interest…

10 Interesting Comic Book Writers Your Should Follow on Twitter!

Plenty of Marvel writers here, most notably the head honcho, Stan Lee. I’ve got some good feedback from this one, and I’m really pleased that it’s been tweeted over 800 times!

10 Talented Comic Book Artists You Should Follow on Twitter!

A bit of a wider range here, but still more than enough for the Marvel fans. This includes classics like Walt Simonson and newer names like Lee Garbett (who I met at the Bristol Comic Expo; really nice guy, very down-to-earth and approachable, with fantastic talent).

Now Playing: 5 “Astonishing” Websites for X-Men Fans

Something a little different here: a list of some of the best X-Men sites on the web. A very simple idea, but one which I think works quite well, particularly after the release of the astounding X-Men: Day of Future Past movie.

Anyway, I hope you enjoy the articles. This blog is done in my spare time, whereas I make my living through work for places like MakeUseOf and the Doctor Who website, Kasterborous. Frankly, I wouldn’t be able to run Make Mine A Marvel Omnibus without them, so I really appreciate your support – whether that be simply reading them, or sharing them, or even commenting and giving me feedback, good or bad. Thank you.

Walter Simonson draws Thor!

This is amazing. Simonson has a lot of fans out there… and rightly so! The ease and quickness of his sketching is truly inspirational.

There’s a bit of Beta Ray Bill, which is cool enough for one video, but I love his Thor, which he starts at about 2:30.

If you’re impressed (of course you are), you can get the huuuuge 1192-page omnibus with one of two covers at Amazon.co.uk for the amazing price of £51.17 here:

That’s a saving of nearly £45 – perfect for a comic fan at Christmas!
