Hatter M. #3
Sami Makkonen is a Finnish comic artist, who has published most of his fantasy and horror work in the USA. He studied fine art painting in Tarttu, Estonia, and his career as a comic artist took off when he won the fantasy-themed competition run by the Finnish Comics Professionals organisation with his work 'Pelastus ja anteeksianto' ('Salvation and Forgiveness', 2007).
Based in Helsinki, Makkonen began working for American publishers after they noticed his work on the internet. His US credits include books such as volumes 2 and 3 of the 'Hatter M.' graphic novels (2009 and 2010, scripts by Frank Beddor), 'Deadworld: Slaughterhouse' (2011, script by Gary Reed) and Blue (2008, script by Elizabeth Genco).
