From Newsarama’s 11 to watch in ’11 – the Creators:
In many comics circles, Stuart Immonen is known as the comic artist’s artist. With his work most recently on the Marvel series New Avengers, he’s shown an ability to balance the realistic and action-packed super-heroics that the House of Ideas is known for while also demonstrating an amazing ability to illustrate expressive emotions that other artists would overlook. With news that he’ll be illustrating Marvel’s 2011 tentpole event Fear, Itself, Immonen has been positioned as one of Marvel’s pre-eminent artists – achieving the hierarchical equivalent to Brian Bendis’ lofty position as Marvel’s chief writer. And while he’s become the go-to guy for super-heroes, he keeps a healthy and creative aim into creator-owned projects with several recent projects and the upcoming Russian Olive to Red King graphic novel with his wife, Kathryn. 2011 is shaping up to be a banner year where is popularity finally caught up with his innate talent and yeoman-like draftsmanship.
