Shawn McManus

We are pleased to welcome artist Shawn McManus to Vermont Fan Fest!

Shawn McManus is an American artist who entered the comic book field in the early 1980s with work for Heavy Metal and DC Comics.

McManus gained wider attention when he illustrated two 1980s issues of Swamp Thing written by Alan Moore. He received a nomination, with Alan Moore, for a 1985 Jack Kirby award for “Pog” in Swamp Thing 32. The story, an inventive science fictional reinterpretation of Walt Kelly’s Pogo, was written by Moore specifically for McManus, who rose to the challenge with an appropriate Kellyesque art style.

A Game of You (1993) is the fifth collection of issues in the DC Comics series, The Sandman. Written by Neil Gaiman, illustrated by Shawn McManus, Colleen Doran, Bryan Talbot, George Pratt, Stan Woch and Dick Giordano, and lettered by Todd Klein. Sandman is currently in production for a Netflix series.

Since then he has drawn issues of Omega Men, Batman, Doctor Fate, Fables, Cinderella, Fairest and a pair of limited series about the witch Thessaly written by Bill Willingham.

Shawn will be appearing both days and will have books, prints, and original art for sale!
