Young Willamette Writers Presents Eric Shanower




About Eric Shanower

Eric Shanower is the award-winning cartoonist of the graphic novel series Age of Bronze (Image Comics), retelling the story of the Trojan War. With cartoonist Skottie Young, he adapted six of L. Frank Baum’s Oz books to a series of New York Times best-selling graphic novels (Marvel Comics). He wrote the Eisner Award-winning graphic novel Little Nemo: Return to Slumberland (IDW) with art by Gabriel Rodriguez. Shanower’s other comics work includes his own Oz graphic novel series Adventures in Oz (IDW), the story “Happily Ever After” included in the Lambda Literary Award finalist How Beautiful the Ordinary (HarperCollins), and art for numerous Casper the Friendly Ghost comics by Mike Wolfer (American Mythology), for An Accidental Death by Ed Brubaker (Fantagaphics Books), for The Elsewhere Prince by Moebius and R-JM Lofficier (Marvel), and for Harlan Ellison’s Dream Corridor (Dark Horse Comics). Shanower has illustrated for television, stage, magazines, and children’s books, two of which he wrote himself. In 1994 he co-founded—and through 2002 was co-publisher of—Hungry Tiger Press, which specializes in reprinting and continuing the works of Oz-creator L. Frank Baum. He lives in Portland, Oregon, with his husband, David Maxine, and a cat.
