Matt Martin

Well known for his detailed line work and sense of design, writer/artist Matt Martin made his professional debut in 1993 with his creator-owned series Vortex for small press publisher Hall of Heroes and quickly developed a slick, intricate style that has made him a fan favorite on the indy scene and beyond.

Martin's best-known work to date has been his creator-owned title Snowman, a supernatural tale of an indian warrior returning in the form of a creature of ice and snow to take revenge against the white man for the brutal murder of his wife.

With Avatar Press, Martin has done both Snowman and Vortex mini-series, numerous covers, several stories in Avatar anthology Threshold including the Snowman spin-off character August, the recent Coven: Dark Sister mini-series, and the Alan Moore-scripted second tale from Alan Moore's Glory #2. Martin is also an inker of note having inked several high profile David Finch covers among others for Avatar.

Martin's upcoming works include an as-yet unannounced mini-series featuring a popular Avatar Press character, and the surprise return of another popular character in a landmark issue of another Avatar title.

Avatar announces Lady Death: Dead Rising debut, Wizardworld Chicago plans  

Avatar Press has announced that its first Lady Death release, Brian Pulido's Lady Death: Dead Rising, will debut at Wizardworld Chicago, August 13-15.  A number of Avatar Press creators will also be on hand at the Avatar booth at the show, including Brian Pulido, Jacen Burrows, Clint Hilinski, Greg Waller, Matt Martin, and Sean Shaw.

"While we will begin with a new series, Medieval Lady Death #1, I will be careful to make this a good jumping on point for new readers. Our second Lady Death series will be the "classic" Heaven & Hell/Bitch Goddess Lady Death.  We had to bring her back because fans demanded her back. True to the Chaos! style I established, her adventures will be in a series of limited series."

Lady Death: Dead Rising will take a look at both titles with art from Romano Molenaar, Di Amorim, Matt Martin, Clint Hilinski, and Juan Jose Ryp, and covers by Ryp, Martin, and Sean Shaw.

The following Avatar Press creators will be at the Avatar Press booth at the show:
