X-Men: First Class by Kevin Nowlan
X-Men: First Class

Born in Nebraska, Kevin Nowlan began his career in the early 1980s. He started out as an illustrator for the fan press through The Comics Journal and Amazing Heroes, but he soon moved to collaborations with such artists as Dan Jurgens and Gil Kane. He is mostly recognised for his inking work, which he himself likes to refer to as "finishing", but he has also done pencil work (such as 'Moon Knight').

He has worked on such titles as 'Batman', 'Legends of the DC Universe', 'Superman/Aliens', 'Moon Knight' and 'Star Wars'. Together with writer Alan Moore, he created 'Jack B. Quick, Boy Inventor' whose adventures appeared in Moore's Tomorrow Stories. He also contributed to the adult Penthouse Comix, and has done character designs for 'Batman: The Animated Series'.

Since 1999, Lambiek presents the Comiclopedia as a free service to comic fans from all over the world. The database has expanded to over 12,000 biographies of international comic artists, and also has an extensive Dutch section about comics in the Netherlands.
For 15 years, the site was funded from the resources of our Amsterdam-based shop. However, the current economical circumstances make it difficult for us to maintain this service. At the moment the Comiclopedia's sole editor works for us free of charge, aided by a couple of (international) volunteers.
