Richard Sala grew up with a fascination for musty old museums, dusty libraries, cluttered antique shops, narrow alleyways, hidden truths, double meanings, and late night walks. He’s known for his creepy, spooky, and weird illustrations and paintings.
His books include The Chuckling Whatsit, Peculia, Maniac Killer Strikes Again!, Peculia, The Grave Robber’s Daughter, and Delphine. His illustrations and comics have appeared in numerous publications, including RAW, Esquire, Playboy, and The New York Times.
Sala’s latest book is Cat Burglar Black (First Second: September 2009), a tale of theft, ancient treasure, and orphans.
