A Canadian artist's creations

The Brantford Expositor interviewed a creator from Ontario who's been putting out his own adventures, sci-fi and fantasy:
Working from the conventional surroundings of his Brantford home, Andrew Thomas is helping take comic book lovers on otherworldly journeys with stories and graphics bounded only by his creativity.

And it’s earning the cartoonist, graphic designer and comic book letterer recognition in a highly competitive industry.

“There’s no limit to what you can do creatively in comics,” said Thomas. “You can have out-of-world premises, be experimental with art. You can bend the rules.”
Be that as it may, the problem neither he nor the paper actually focus upon is whether far-leftists believe it permittable to impose limits on what you can do for the right reasons. No surprise most MSM publications overlook that issue though.
He has gone on to dream up a series featuring a superhero hailing from Timmins, Ontario, and done interior and cover art for more than 150 publications, including Disney, BOOM! Studios, Archie Comics, Chapterhouse and, most recently, Dark Horse, working with one of his idols — American filmmaker, actor, comedian, and comic book writer, Kevin Smith.
This news disappointed me, because Smith's long proven he's overrated and gratuitous for a writer, and what's the use of working alongside somebody like him? Smith is more a reason for discouragement, IMO, than encouragement. And wouldn't you know it, Thomas lets know his top favorite superhero is:
Always a “doodle-bug,” Thomas had childhood aspirations of being a Disney animator but didn’t seriously begin collecting comics until 2011, when he fell in love with a re-launched series of books that included his all-time favourite superhero, Batman.
Yup, once again, we're told the Masked Manhunter is the numero uno favorite of a creator or salesman of the week, not Superman. This is getting awfully cliched already.

It's great Thomas has found success but too bad he goes for all the easy choices when it comes to who he works with, and what he reads for pastime.

About me

  • I'm Avi Green
  • From Jerusalem, Israel
  • I was born in Pennsylvania in 1974, and moved to Israel in 1983. I also enjoyed reading a lot of comics when I was young, the first being Fantastic Four. I maintain a strong belief in the public's right to knowledge and accuracy in facts. I like to think of myself as a conservative-style version of Clark Kent. I don't expect to be perfect at the job, but I do my best.
