ARTIST APPRECIATION – Marcos Martín

It’s great to see imaginative creators pair up time and time again. Marcos Martín happens to be a great artist who has continually worked with Mark Waid, Brian K Vaughn, Javier Rodríguez and Paulo Rivera. Marcos Martín hails from Barcelona, but has worked with various publishers, including Image, DC, and Marvel! As I featured in a weekly picks section, Martín’s art is fantastically bold and colorful with every piece he puts out.

One of Martín’s biggest standout is his work on Batgirl: Year One. A mini-series following Robin: Year One, Marcos Martín showed off flair, boldness, and elegance to demonstrate the power of young Barbara Gordon.

Outside of this, Marcos has contributed art, notably some astonishing covers.

I was introduced to Martín’s work in the Amazing Spider-Man, when he worked on various stories during the Brand New Day era, issue #600, and beyond.

Marcos Martín has also contributed to two noteworthy heroes, including Brian K. Vaughn’s Doctor Strange: The Oath and Mark Waid’s run on Daredevil! In seeing all of these pieces in conjunction, you can look to the boldness inks, beautiful layouts, and solid figures that capture Martín’s style perfectly.

Marcos Martín’s work with Brian K. Vaughn continued after Doctor Strange, as they teamed up to distribute the critically acclaimed Private Eye. A phenomenal commentary on social media culture and the internet as a societal hazard, The Private Eye was brought to life with Martín’s creativity and imagination.
