I first came across Alex Maleev's work through his incredible run on Daredevil with Brian Michael Bendis (you know, the best thing about Marvel comics for the last 20 years or so). His ability to use shadows in his work is both aesthetically pleasing and genuinely distinctive in his work. And yes, that is the most pretentious sentence I'll ever write... Hopefully.
It was a perfect match for the brooding character and I was hooked instantly. I would buy anything if he does the artwork. And have.
Today I took a trip around his official website and I'd like to share some of my favourite pieces with you.
