Hi! I'm Eric Shanower, the award-winning and New York Times bestselling cartoonist, author, and illustrator. My work has been widely published--from Marvel Comics to Random House, from Nickelodeon Magazine to BBC television.
My current comics project, Age of Bronze, tells the complete story of the Trojan War in all its dramatic detail. Every version from Homer's Iliad on down will be newly integrated in comics form when Age of Bronze is finished. It's also set in the correct period--the 13th century BCE. Age of Bronze has been published by Image Comics since 1998, garnering two Eisner Awards, a Gran Guinigi, and a slew of nominations. The second volume, Sacrifice, was selected as one of the Best Books of 2004 by the editors of Publishers Weekly. In addition to English, Age of Bronze is published in Spanish, French, Polish, Italian, Croatian, and Indonesian. To see sample pages and excerpts, go to my Age of Bronze website.
