Every once and a while, I come across a new (to me) comic book artist who prompts that wonderful “Wow! Who is this?” reaction. It happened to me a few years ago when I picked up a book from DC Comics called Green Lantern: Will World, by J.M. Dematteis and Seth Fisher. Seth Fisher’s art is a grab-bag of visual treats: colorful Moebius-inspired surrealism, bizarre monsters, wild aliens, crazy creatures, strange characters and a cool mishmash of Rococo-Baroque meets Art Nouveau meets M.C. Escher backgrounds.
In addition to Will World, Fisher has worked on Happydale: Devils in the Desert, Flash: Time Flies and VertigoPop: Tokyo for DC and the current Fantastic Four/Iron Man: Big In Japan mini-series from Marvel. The galleries on the site include comics work as well as Escher-like tesselations and his 3-D design work for Myst III.
