When I was in college, my friends Dave and Mark told me about an indy series they loved called Empire Lanes, written and drawn by Peter Gross. And over time, I started seeing him appear on books I read like Doctor Fate, Hellstorm, and Books of Magic. At the time he drew this in my book for me (back in 2002 at San Diego Comic-Con), he was drawing Lucifer, a hugely successful spin-off from Neil Gaiman’s Sandman series, and that is of course the title character himself.
He’s since worked on a lot of other series, but his latest is The Unwritten (reuniting him with author Mike Carey who also wrote Lucifer) which is a fantastic book about the secret world behind books and fans. Love his art.
