Nate Simpson’s Nonplayer

Friday, April 29th, 2011

When Cyriaque Lamar of io9 called Nonplayer one of the most gorgeous comics of 2011, I expected the art to impress:

When the artist, Nate Simpson, cited his three major influences as Hayao Miyazaki, William Stout, and Arthur Rackham, I immediately found myself — as a Miyazaki and Rackham fan — asking, who’s William Stout?

I didn’t realize Stout was the artist behind the iconic Necron 99 poster for Bakshi’s Wizards — a film I’ve discussed before, by the way.
