Hey, fans! Here are a pair of posters I produced for the recent 2008 FanExpo Toronto. Dave Sim had suggested that I capitalize on Marvel's Secret Invasion storyline, so I gave it a go. I haven't had this much fun drawing in a long time.
Rob Walton is a writer and cartoonist living in Toronto, Canada. He has worked in animation since 1991 as a designer, story board artist, and supervising director. He entered the field of comic books in 1987 with his one shot, Pork knight. He followed that up with the cult hit, The Devil's Hammer, a three issue Grendel Tale for Dark Horse Comics. In 2006 he completed Ragmop, a 400 page graphic novel. Often described as indescribable, it is a grand satire of the world we live in. Ragmop was nominated for two Eisner Awards and two Joe Shuster Wards. In 2011 it was listed as one of the 1001 comics you must read before you die in in Paul Gravett’s 1001 Comics You Must Read Before You Die: The Ultimate Guide to Comic Books, Graphic Novels and Manga.
