Savage Wolverine Jock

Earlier this week we spoke to illustrator Jock about his Savage Wolverine story arc, which began in Wednesday's issue #9.

Jock Talks ‘Savage Wolverine’, Creative Freedom and the Future [Interview]

Untitled-1

Best known by his pseudonym Jock, Mark Simpson is one of the most interesting artists in mainstream comics right now. Brought up in the 2000 AD school of British comics and breaking into the American market with The Losers graphic novel series at Vertigo, Jock set a new standard for himself with work on 2011's Batman: The Black Mirror, where his bold and contemporary graphic style contributed to what many fans and critics agree was the most significant Dark Knight adventure in years, not to mention one of the coolest Joker illustrations of all time.

Like many comics illustrators of his skill and increasing popularity, Jock has availed himself of the comics scene's resuscitating fascination with strong artistic visions and is releasing this week Savage Wolverine #9, the first chapter of a three-part arc he both wrote and drew. It's a major career move for Jock but only the latest auteur artist spotlight for Savage Wolverine (following delightfully eccentric work by Frank Cho and Joe Madureira), which in this crucial way is one of Marvel's most important titles.
