Visions of an Icon: Wolverine by Kelly Tindall

Kelly Tindall is a Canadian illustrator, raised in Saskatchewan and obsessed with drawing since the age of two. He threw on a parka and graduated from college, and now he works freelance on both editorial and comic book assignments. He spends his free time exploring Montréal and falling in love with his wife.

Kelly’s character Archie Snow appears in the backup story in issues of Proof, published by Image Comics.  These stories, written and illustrated by Kelly, explore Snow’s mysterious origin and the reason that he has a snow leopard’s head in place of a human one. Archie is a supernatural investigator who looks into mysteries involving monsters, ghosts, and scientific abominations. He is assisted by Mickey McCaig – the richest man in the world – and secret agent Dave Fabricant. He likes jazz and he’s trying to quit smoking. Want to know what Archie has been up to?
