Book Review: The Marvel Art of Skottie Young

The Marvel Art of Skottie Young - 01


Skottie Young broke into Marvel Comics in 2002 and for more than a decade and put out an amazing volume of work that helped him grew to fame.

This large 224-page hardcover is a collection of selected works he has created in the past. There are too many titles to name but the more well known ones are Spider-Man: Legend of the Spider-Clan, Human Torch, Oz, New X-Men, New Warriors, Deadpool, and of course the Young Marvel.

Half of this book is actually filled with art created for Young Marvel. The other half is split between work for other titles. If you like Skottie Young, it means you like his take and style on popular characters we already know like Hulk, Iron-Man, Wolverine and more, and you can see loads of those in this book. It's really cool to see how his style developed into something so recognisable today. There's a good amount of text with interviews and writeup talking about the different titles, eg like how he got into The Wonderful Wizard of Oz which won the 2010 Eisners for Best Limited Series or Story Arc and Best Publication for Kids.

If there's one thing I like about Skottie Young's art, it's that they are fun to look at. It's not easy to draw fun but it seems like it's not so for him.

This book has all the official art with a few sketches for Oz. I would definitely love to see one with just his sketches too.

Highly recommended.
