Before They Were Comic Book Stars #10 Stuart Immonen

Filed under: Before They Were (Comic Book) Stars — Doorman @ 2:19 pm

Not every comic writer or artist starts at the top, working on books like Batman or X-Men. In fact, most don’t even start at Marvel or DC. Here’s a look at some work by comic book creators … before they were stars.

Headcheese #2 by Stuart ImmonenStuart Immonen is a comic book artist best known for his work on Ultimate Spider-Man, Ultimate X-Men, Adventures of Superman, and his collaboration with Warren Ellis on Nextwave. But, before breaking into mainstream comics, he self-published an independent anthology entitled Headcheese. He called the publisher One Horse Leadworks and it featured work by him, Kathryn Kuder (who he later married) and others. I’ve never seen issue #1 or #3 but I have recently come across issue #2. It was published in 1988 and limited to a print run of only 250!
