Thomas Scioli Artist Interview

The talented artist Thomas Scioli is a former Xeric Grant winner (for The Myth of 8-Opus) best known for his Jack Kirby-inspired art and the collaboration that such an approach to the comic book page has afforded him with the writer Joe Casey on the cosmic odyssey Gødland. Casey and Scioli recently announced that Gødland would end with issue #36, a surprise in that the Pittsburgh-based cartoonist had expressed an interest in continuing with the series for the remainder of his comics career. He is currently reviving Myth of 8-Opus; a new issue will be out on stands this summer. I know nothing about Scioli other than that his fellow cartoonists speak highly of him and that he's one of the few comics creators with his level of production that also works a full-time job.
