Graphic Novel Collaborators: Introducing Andy MacDonald and Ivan Brandon

As we’ve been releasing character sketches from the upcoming The Way of Shadows graphic novel, I’ve been working with two very talented artists on the script and illustrations. The process has been fun and more than a little creatively and intellectually challenging, but I’ve been consistently impressed by the caliber of their work, so I wanted to share a little more about them–and maybe lead you to some other projects you’ll enjoy:

He is arguably best known for his work in American comic books, where his scripts have been published by every major US publisher with translations all over the world.  He lives in New York City.
