‘Super Graphic’ Author Tim Leong Unveils Title-Page Design For ‘Iron Man’ #18
If you’ve already picked up Iron Man #18 by Kieron Gillen and Joe Bennett, which hit comic-shop shelves today, you’ve already seen this title page for the new Iron Metropolitan storyline.
What you may not have known is that Super Graphic author Tim Leong designed it, and it’s his first-ever work in a published Marvel comic. Read what he had to say about it on Facebook after the jump.
Here are Leong’s comments:
Iron Man #18 comes out today, which is notable because it’s the start of a new story arc by Kieron Gillen, but also because it’s my first published comic book work by Marvel Comics. I designed the title spread shown here (Iron Metropolitan is the name of the story), as well as the recap page. Fun side project! Big thank you to Sana Amanat, Mark, Emily and Kieron for letting me briefly join in the fun.
In addition to Leong’s new Marvel work, over the summer former ComicsAlliance editor-in-chief Laura Hudson teased that she would be reuniting with him (her own former EiC) for a special Comic Foundry release in the not-too-distant future. No matter what he’s working on, it seems Leong always has designs on comic work.
