Reilly Brown is a Brooklyn-based artist perhaps best known for his work on Marvel’s Deadpool (and Cable, among a buncha others). Right now, he’s got a new digital comic, Power Play
. You can also check out his website: http://reillybrown.deviantart.com/
And here’s what the dude likes to read:
All New X-Men, Marvel. OK, I don’t normally like time travel stories, and I typically loathe retroactive continuity, so at first I mostly just bought this comic to get my nerd rage going, but somehow (Brian Michael) Bendis and (Stuart) Immonen are able to pull this together into a brilliant story that reflects on how some of my favorite characters have changed and evolved over the years. Makes it hard to wait for the next issue!
Axe Cop, Dark Horse. This comic is ridiculous. The Nicolle brothers make me not only feel like I’m 6 years old again, but remember what it was like to THINK like a 6-year-old again. Brilliant concept, brilliant execution. (Ed. And now a cartoon!)
Blade of the Immortal, Dark Horse. Hiroaki Samura’s art is some of my favorite to look at, with his deliberate yet messy style bringing so much energy and personality to the page. And his story’s exploration of justice and mortality is fascinating. Also, he draws the best goddamn feet anyone has ever drawn.
Invincible, Image. It’s been going on for 100 issues and it still feels fresh. (Robert) Kirkman is great at finding new ground to tread within the concept, and I’m completely jealous of Ryan Ottley’s ability to draw so well so consistently, although … sometimes his gore kind of makes me want to throw up.
Superior Spider-Man, Marvel. It’s rare for a comic character that’s been around for over 50 years to continue to be surprising, but Dan Slott’s done an amazing job of finding brand new territory to tread with Spider-Man, and put him in situations that I’ve never seen him in before. Ryan Stegman’s art has done a killer job of finding creative ways to show the inner turmoil of Dr. Octopus trying to live Peter Parker’s life, and maintain control of his mind. Truly a great comic!
These are Reilly Brown’s hands. He’s drawing Deadpool.
