Reviews

Neither art book nor autobiography nor graphic novel, but an unsettling combination of all three.


I have trouble believing that anyone who reads Opus with an open mind won't be somewhat changed by the experience, both in their appreciation of the author and artist and in their contemplation and understanding of themselves....a divine work. Neither art book nor autobiography nor graphic novel, but an unsettling combination of all three.


Author Information

Barry Windsor-Smith began his career by drawing mainstay Marvel characters such as the X-Men and Daredevil in 1969 in the traditional Marvel style. However, in 1971 he broke from the Marvel formula when he started drawing the Conan series, turning heads with a fresh and controversial stylistic approach and winning numerous industry awards. Part of a young generation of artists that included compatriots Berni Wrightson, Mike Kaluta, and Jeff Jones, Windsor-Smith proceeded to carve an independent path for himself. In the '90s, he conceived, wrote, and drew three independent series, The Freebooters, Young Gods, and The Paradox-Man. In 1999 and 2001 Fantagraphics published Opus volumes 1 and 2, autobiographical coffee table art books. Monsters is his first book since The Freebooters (2005). He currently lives in New York.
