Violence & Pinwheels
Artist Ryan Ottley has been knocking it out of the park for the past eight years on Invincible with writer Robert Kirkman. No disrespect to original artist Cory Walker, but Ottley quickly made a name for himself in a world of super-heroes who aren’t afraid to pull punches. Despite his busy schedule he’s found time here and there to do one-shots like Sea Bear & Grizzly Shark, and now he’s unveiling something he’s spent the past two years working on — his sketchbook!
Titled Violence & Pinwheeels, it mixes the gruesome and bloody details from those “special” moments of Invincible with some of the more innocent moments the artist is capable of. This hardcover book clocks in at 72 pages, and includes one-off sketches as well as character designs from Invincible and Haunt. The book is priced at $25 with an additional $7 for shipping inside the U.S., and Ottley is offering an additional signed Invincible comic to offset those charges.
