Getting to know Brandon Graham

As you know from reading my earlier blogpost here and from Oslo Comics Expo´s webpage one of the guests at this years OCX is Brandon Graham. As proof of what a great guy he is Brandon has agreed to say a few wise words to introduce our screening of The Last Unicorn at OCX.

Let me therefore use this moment to get more familiar with Brandon Graham and his work. First off, a great start would be to visit his blog or to follow him on twitter, we do live in the 21st century you know! Failing that, I guess you will just have to continue reading my very short summary below.

Brandon Graham is an American comic book writer and illustrator. One of his better known works is King City, a manga published by Tokyopop. King City is a comic notorious for its humor and truckloads of puns. I found this article from 2009 to be a good introduction to King City and also the complications that Graham encountered doing King City Vol.2. King City earned Graham the Eisner Award in 2007.

Other works include Multiple Warheads and scriptwriting for Image Comic´s Prophet. Here´s a few examples of cover art by Brandon Graham in his very distinct style.
