by Eric NOLEN-WEATHINGTON

The mid-’80s was the age of independent comics. It was also the age of the dinosaur, thanks to Mark Schultz and Xenozoic Tales! Evocative of the master illustrators of the early 1900s, but with a decidedly modern flair, Schultz’s artwork stood out like a beacon from the fare of the day. And it still does—Xenozoic Tales even spawned the Cadillacs & Dinosaurs cartoon and toy line. Schultz has also written various Superman, Aliens, and Predator comics, as well as a novel featuring DC’s Flash, and is currently writing the Prince Valiant newspaper strip. But his drawing alone—including his exquisite Conan book illustrations—makes him a true Modern Master! Modern Masters Vol. 15: Mark Schultz takes an exhaustive look into Schultz’s career and creative process. This 128-page book features a career-spanning interview with tons of art, including many rare and unpublished pieces, as part of a huge gallery of stunning artwork by this true Modern Master!

The 120 page 8 1/2″ x 11″ Trade Paperback with a full color cover and black-and-white interiors retails for $14.95 in the U.S. and ships 12 December 2007.

    I’m really looking forward to the Stan Lee issue of Alter Ego. I have a small article about the “Roy Thomas at Marvel in the 70’s” issue (#70) on my site today.

    Mark Schultz is certainly one who deserves a Modern Masters treatment.
