Kevin Nowlan is a comic artist who works as a penciler, inker, colorist, and letterer. He has been called “one of the few artists who can be called “artists’ artist”, a master of the various disciplines of comic production, from “design to draftsmanship to dramatics.”
Nowlan first came to the industry’s attention in the early 1980s via illustrations in the fan press, most notably The Comics Journal and Amazing Heroes.
Nowlan’s first published work for Marvel Comics was Doctor Strange #57 (Feb. 1983). He has worked for DC Comics and other comics publishers. In 1992, he inked the Batman: Sword of Azrael miniseries which introduced the character Azrael. He drew the short story “The Castle” in Vertigo Jam #1 (Aug. 1993) which featured the Sandman and was part of “The Kindly Ones” story arc. One of Nowlan’s prominent contribution to comics is the creation of Jack B. Quick with writer Alan Moore. This character appeared several times in Tomorrow Stories under the America’s Best Comics imprint.
Although the majority of his work is as an inker, he has provided both pencils and lettering for various comics. He is a noted cover illustrator. Nowlan contributed character designs to Batman: The Animated Series, most notably The Penguin, The Mad Hatter and the Man-Bat.
His style gives a strong emphasis towards both facial expression and posture and in neither case is he constrained by the conventions of the comic-book hero.
