Karl Slominski

Meeting and promoting fresh and unique talent in comics is something ComicsVerse takes great pride in! Back in April, we met up with the awesome Karl Slominski at East Coast Comic Con. Slominski is outgoing and funny, and his work perfectly reflects his personality. Mr. Slominski has been self-publishing comics for over a decade. His latest release from 215 Ink, TEETER TOPPLE, is something everyone should check out. Slominski not only wrote the comic but also painted the whole thing. That’s right, Slominski goes OG on comic art and uses physical brushes and paints to create his visuals. He scans every image and then combines it with his written word for a truly unique reading experience.
