J. O. Ladrönn

LadronnI’m not exactly sure why someone would want to draw a sci-fi comic with an anthropomorphic hippopotamus in a trench coat as a lead character, but Mexican comics artist J. O. Ladrönn sure does a bang-up job of it. In addition to that project, (HipFlask, written by ComicCraft’s Richard Starkings and Joe Casey), Ladrönn has applied his considerable talents to a number of projects for DC and Marvel including work on The Fantastic Four and three issues of a very cool Inhumans mini-series in cooperation with Carlos Pacheco.

The HipFlask site has more art than the official J. O. Ladrönn site on Hollywood Comics, but the latter is easier to navigate. There is also high-res Ladrönn art here, which is for sale.
