If you've been reading comics for a while or have done random comic image searches, chances are you've come across Joe Jusko's work. He's an incredible artist and I remember the old Marvel Masterpieces trading card sets that featured his art in the 90s.
Today Michael Friendlander, former CEO of FPG Inc, the premier fantasty trading card publisher, announced that Joe will be joining the ranks of FERAL PLANET, Friendlander's new multi-media venture. Joe will be involved with the creation and promotion of new products for FERAL PLANET's projects.
Here's what Joe said about the announcement:
Michael and I have talked about a collaborative endeavor like this since the FPG days, and I'm truly excited about all the ideas and prospects that are in the hopper. He has the same boyhood enthusiasm for this material as I do, and I can't think of anyone with whom I'd rather be embarking on this journey.
Joe's career spans 35 years and he's worked for nearly every major comic book publisher, producing hundreds of images for covers and interiors.
FERAL PLANET's first project is a large format prehistoric storybook entitled "GOLIATH." It's an all-age, 11" x 11" book written by Friendlander and illustrated by Mike Ploog.
