I recently inked Pia Guerra’s pencils for Hellblazer #6! It was just like the old Y: The Last Man days! The script was by Simon Oliver. It’s on sale now. “Where is the Vertigo logo!?!?” She asked nicely.

Jim Lee Superman for Inkwell Awards

I recently inked this piece over Jim Lee pencils (over blueline). This was my first time inking Jim’s pencils, and it was fun and exciting knowing that many other inkers would be inking the same image for a charity auction. It’s for the Joe Sinnott Inking Challenge Spotlight on Jim Lee project sponsored by the […]

Thundercats! Ho!

Thundercats #8 cover (1987). Pencils by me (from layout by John Romita). Inks by Tom Palmer. Why did Palmer sign the piece “J. Thomas”? Not really sure. When I met him (maybe after this cover was done), and introduced myself he mentioned something that he thought Marzan was an alias of Romita’s. I guess he […]

Video Page! MarzanTV!

It’s still early and things can change, but that’s the basic idea. While I wait for my camera to arrive, I did a quick and dirty test on my iPhone working on a […]

New ink commissions over Pia Guerra’s pencils of our favorite Y: The Last Man characters! It’s been a few years since I’ve worked with Pia on Y: The Last Man, and it brought back some good memories. I think we did some good work on that series.

The Marzan catalogue raisonné!

I’ve always wanted to compile a complete list of my published works, but work and life (and laziness) has always kept me from doing it. The job itself is so daunting that I would probably never do it. But, the folks at Comics.org has an amazing database of comics, comic creators, etc etc. So the […]
