Plaid Klaus

This time around at Wizard World Philadelphia 2016 I got a chance to sit down and talk to New York City based illustrator and designer, Plaid Klaus. The up-and-coming artist quickly became a favorite amongst the ComicsVerse community while at Wizard World. He was incredibly approachable, amazingly talented, and was nice enough to draw a number of commissions for some of our ComicsVerse people. You can check out his MOON KNIGHT, SWAMP THING, and HELLBOY!

Plaid Klaus has come on to the scene as a comics artist with his creator-owned work THE GLIMMER SOCIETY, written by James Potter. It is a horror-fantasy comic for lovers of spells, magic, and scary adventures. The story revolves around a group of youngsters who put poltergeists to bed and take care of all kinds of dark magic running amuck in our world. It’s definitely a book for those who want unique, fresh storytelling coupled with incredible art.

Plaid Klaus is also working on another creator-owned work called TURNCOAT with writer Ryan O’Sullivan. The comic tells the story of a superhero assassin named Duke who doesn’t quite have the skills to keep up with the high-flying capes he’s been assigned to kill. It’s a comedic take on the sometimes worn out superhero genre but it’s done with tact and finesse.
