Greg Capullo is an American comic book artist and penciller, best known for his work on Quasar, X-Force, Angela and Spawn. He also had his own creator-owned, written and drawn comic The Creech, published via Image Comics. Currently he is the cover artist for the series Spawn and the artist (with Todd McFarlane) of the crossover Spawn/Batman.
Capullo started off as an aspiring self-taught artist. He was influenced by John Buscema who Capullo has referred to as “the master of the human figure.” He began his artistic career with a job in commercial advertising but soon was noticed for his talent as an inker and penciller and began on projects involving his artwork.
His first comic work was a publication called Gore Shriek, which was picked up and published by a comic book store in Albany, New York, called Fantaco Enterprises. Due to the success of the small comic series, when it had ended, Capullo began work for Marvel Comics where he worked on Quasar, X-Force, and What If?. Briefly after Greg Capullo had started work with Marvel, he had begun smaller indie projects away from the company. He had started involvement with separate labels and anyone who would hire him for miscellaneous odd-jobs that needed completion.
Todd McFarlane had left Marvel Comics to create an independent company called Image Comics and noticed Greg’s work on X-Force. McFarlane convinced Capullo to leave Marvel Comics and execute the pencilling for McFarlane’s comic, Spawn. Capullo has illustrated for Spawn off and on for several years. He began with issue 16, then took over as pencil artist with issue 26. He has been doing the cover-art and pencilling for many Image Comics publications including Capullo’s own miniseries, The Creech, and various Spawn tie-ins and variants.
Greg provides layouts for Image’s Haunt, which debuted in October 2009. The pencils for the layouts were done by Ryan Ottley up until issue 6 where Greg Capullo then took over pencilling for the series and has become the regular penciller, inks are all done by Todd McFarlane. Apart from comics, he’s been involved in several projects such as pencilling for the Korn album Follow the Leader and the Disturbed album, Ten Thousand Fists, and being part of the crew who worked on the animated sequences in the film The Dangerous Lives of Altar Boys.
Greg looks forward to seeing all his fans at both the Brisbane and Melbourne shows and will be appearing each Saturday 10.30am to 5.30pm and each Sunday 11am to 5pm at Kings Comics for signing his work. He will also be conducting one Q&A per day each expo.
