Zero JM Ken Niimura Illustrations
Artist: Ken Niimura
Image Comics is proud to present a collection of whimsical, colorful illustrations by JM Ken Niimura. The esteemed artist’s gestural, emotionally affective work with writer Joe Kelly on the critically acclaimed miniseries I KILL GIANTS helped ensure that book was nominated for an Eisner award in 2009, won IGN’s Best Indy Book of 2008, and was listed as one of the Top 10 YA Library Association picks of 2010. Niimura’s work did not start nor stop with I KILL GIANTS, though.
Prior to his collaboration with Kelly, Niimura worked on a variety of international titles, including UNDERGROUND LOVE, CLOCKWORLD, VACIO ABSOLUTO, and OSTRAS JUALAS.
