Chris Sheridan draws nifty superheroes (and more)

Vulnerable. Fragile. Sometimes frumpy. I really enjoy when an artist is able to draw a hero’s humanity out and lay it onto the page.

Enter Chris Sheridan. I can best describe his style as a cross between Jeff Lemire and Farel Dalrymple – two artists whose work I adore.

Sheridan, who hails from Seattle, puts the vulnerability at the forefront but his characters are never weak — there’s a hidden strength behind his lines. Just check out this Superman. Delicious.

On the right is a page of inked work from an unpublished story he’s hoping to have ready for next convention season.

Check out his blog, Powder Keg Comics, for lots more great work.
