Artist/creator, The MAXX, Zero Girl; artist, Sandman
Sam Kieth’s quirky art and vivid storytelling have made him a fan-favorite creator over his almost 30-year career in comics. Kieth’s early work included inking Matt Wagner’s Mage series, but he came to fame with his art on the first five issues of Sandman, written by Neil Gaiman. In 1993 Kieth joined the then-new Image Comics with his own creation The Maxx, which was also adapted as an animated series on MTV. Other notable work includes Zero Girl, My Inner Bimbo, and work on Batman at DC. IDW has a new art book, The Worlds of Sam Kieth, debuting this summer.
