MODERN MASTERS VOLUME TWENTY ONE: CHRIS SPROUSE
by Todd DeZAGO and Eric NOLEN-WEATHINGTON
The artwork of Chris Sprouse is hard to categorize. It is fresh, yet familiar… modern, yet classic. Perhaps that is why titles such as Supreme and Tom Strong—both written by the legendary Alan Moore—were the perfect vehicles for his work. Regardless, one category this Eisner Award-winning artist easily falls into is that of Modern Master! Join Todd Dezago and Eric Nolen-Weathington as they explore what makes Chris Sprouse such an influential force in the comic book industry. This book presents a career-spanning interview and discussion of his creative process, plus plenty of rare and unseen art, including a large gallery of commissioned work!
The 128 page, 8 1/2″ x 11″ Trade Paperback with a fiull color cover and black and white interiors retails for $14.95 in the U.S. and ships 21 January 2009.
