Operation: Kei Zama to attend TFNation 2017
With IDW’s universe of Transformers comics going from strength to strength, the depth of talent involved in creating them grows ever greater and now we at TFNation are pleased to bring more of that greatness to you, in the form of Kei Zama, returning for our second year.
Starting with their series of covers for IDW’s Transformer line in September 2015, Kei-sensei has rapidly gained a large fan following, due to their mean and gritty artistic style, as well as their stunning commission work. Following on from cover work, they are now bringing the continuing adventures of Optimus Prime to life (along with writer John Barber and colourist Josh Burcham) in his current titular series.
Outside of Transformers, Kei-sensei made their Marvel comics art debut with last year’s Scarlet Witch #10, has provided art for Sparklight comics, as well as covers for IDW’s Atomic Robo, and recently achieved a personal dream in working on an ABC Warriors-related piece for Fleetway/2000ad. The Blackblood-themed story (written by the mighty Pat Mills) is set to show off Zama's undeniable talent for monochrome imagery and prove a perfect fit for the tone of this title.
We advise all our attendees to keep an eye on Kei-sensei’s blog http://steelandstarlight.com/ for details of their commission list, as the event draws closer.
