Arnold and Jacob Pander are sons of of Dutch immigrant artist, Henk Pander. The brother's work gained national attention in 1986 when they were asked to illustrate Matt Wagner's 'Grendel' for Comico comics. The success of this early indie comix series led to a diverse career in that medium, ranging from the pop 'Ginger Fox' to the darkly experimental 'Exquisite Corpse' (published by Dark Horse). Jacob and Arnold spent two years off-and-on in the Netherlands developing the tale of political upheaval and personal salvation set in a futuristic Amsterdam. Initially published as a 12 issue comic series (by Dark Horse 1994-1995), it was later compiled into the hardcover graphic novel 'Triple-X International'.
After that they worked on a miniseries called 'Accelerate', which they both penciled and inked. The story was written by novelist Richard Kadrey and published by Vertigo (2000). The Panders also wrote and illustrated the cover story, 'Apocalypse Girl', for 'Batman Chronicles' #21 in 2000. In 2004, they made the mini-series 'Batman: City of Light'. In addition, Jacob and Arnold Pander have directed award winning music videos for artists such as Fantastic Plastic Machine, Howie B., and Spacer, and some short films.
