"I got my book last week. It's beautiful, easily the best Kickstarter book in both design and content that I've been rewarded with. I feel very happy to have been part of bringing this exquisite book to life. Kudos to the incomparable Mr. Russell for creating all those wonderful sketches and to his book designer for putting it together so wonderfully. Great job, gentlemen." — Satisfied Pledge Partner

A graduate of the University of Cincinnati with a degree in painting, Russell has run the gamut in comics. After establishing a name for himself at Marvel on Killraven and Dr. Strange, he went on to become one of the pioneers in opening new vistas for this underestimated field with, among other works, adaptations of operas by Mozart ("The Magic Flute"), Strauss ("Salome") and Wagner ("The Ring of the Nibelung"). His more recent work includes graphic novel adaptations of Neil Gaiman's Coraline and The Graveyard Book.
