The latest Modern Masters book spotlights multi-talented comics illustrator Paolo Rivera

Shipping this week is Modern Masters: Paolo Rivera, the 30th volume in editor Eric Nolen-Weathington's ongoing series celebrating the lives and work of the greatest comic book artists of our time.

Eisner and Harvey Award-winner Paolo Rivera grew up in his parents’ art store, so it’s no wonder his life’s path is that of an artist. And not just your run-of-the-mill comic book artist, but a painter, penciler, inker, colorist, and sculptor—Paolo has done it all. From the pulp magazine feel of Mythos to the cinematic adventure of Spider-Man and the sleek stylings of Daredevil, Paolo brings a fresh storytelling approach to each project he illustrates. And his grand sense of design is on full display in the many covers he’s drawn. Whether he’s wielding a paint brush or a pencil, Paolo’s thoughtful work shows he has the Modern Masters touch. 

In this new book, editor Eric Nolen-Weathington goes behind the scenes with Paolo to explore his career and his technique, with access to his archives of published and unpublished work, including an extensive gallery of commissioned pieces, many in in full-color.
