We frequently relish the opportunity to recommend creators or projects that readers might not otherwise consider. But in an effort to mix things up, it never hurts to solicit opinions from the creators themselves. This week, Justin Greenwood, artist of The Fuse and Stumptown, takes a moment to discuss Joe Infurnari‘s work on the sci-fi mystery series The Bunker.
A creator who I think deserves way more recognition is Joe Infurnari, who currently draws The Bunker for Oni Press.
I think artists always appreciate when other artists are doing the things they can’t do well themselves, and I am often impressed with how consistently Joe can deliver interior art that feels very experimental without ever losing the focus or heart of his (and [writer] Joshua Hale Fialkov’s) story. The way he is using texture and color is pretty far from intuitive for me and there is always something interesting in there that makes me stop just to pore over it. And just on a storytelling level, he has a great sense of rhythm and framing that keeps a pretty big concept very grounded and relatable. Not as easy task for anyone to pull off, much less one guy penciling/inking/coloring an ongoing book.
The Bunker #9, which wraps up the series’ second arc, goes on sale Feb. 4.
