The creations of an artist from Lake Tahoe

The Tahoe Daily Tribune tells about Chris Wisnia, a graphic novelist who's been in his career for nearly 2 decades, and has penned comics like Doris Danger:
Comic book creator/writer/artist Chris Wisnia grew up in South Lake Tahoe in the 1980’s, so it’s apt that he’s coming home to celebrate his new graphic novel, Doris Danger: GIANT MONSTERS Amok, as a special guest, at the first ever Lake Tahoe Comic Con, held at the Tahoe Blue Event Center, on September 23rd and 24th.

[...] To celebrate the release of Doris Danger: GIANT MONSTERS Amok, Wisnia has set up signing dates around California and even at the Small Press Expo in Washington, DC, and will be traveling more, nationally, next year. This summer, down at San Diego Comic Con (the Mecca of comic book conventions), Fantagraphics sold out of all the Doris Danger copies they’d brought to the show.

[...] His first published comic book was Tabloia Weekly Magazine, which he self-published for five issues, and which featured his plucky photo-journalist, Doris Danger, who explores the exotic globe, hoping to prove the existence of wonky-looking, retro GIANT MONSTERS wearing underpants, as inspired by (and as a parody of) the pre-super hero comics of Jack Kirby, Steve Ditko, and Stan Lee (the creative team who shortly after created practically the entire Marvel Universe!).

That led to Wisnia’s publishing three Doris Danger graphic novels for SLG Publishing, and then further up the industry ladder to this all-new book with Fantagraphics (see the publisher’s book description at [link]). If you’re a fan of giant monsters, you may have also noticed Chris’s artwork in the Criterion eight disc blu ray box set of Godzilla: [link].
Well he certainly does draw his inspirations from great sources like Kirby/Ditko/Lee. So good luck to him selling his GNs.

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.
