Notable works

Chrissie Zullo is a comic book artist whose notable works include the covers for Cinderella: From Fabletown with Love. She works on pencils and traditional media and colors her work in Photoshop. She names James Jean as among her influences,[1] and her work has also been compared to that of Tara McPherson.[2]

Early life[edit]

Chrissie Zullo was born in Canada. She has since lived in South Florida, North Carolina, and New York City, before settling in Connecticut.[1]

Zullo has stated that Alphonse Mucha is an influence on her art, as well as historical French and Japanese art in general. Her style, which she describes as "flowy, dreamy, and whimsical", is also influenced by modern comics artists such as Winsor McCay, Adam Hughes, Travis Charest and James Jean,[3] and names The Umbrella Academy #2 as her favorite James Jean cover.[4]


Chrissie Zullo was recognized by an editor at the DC Talent Search at San Diego Comic Con 2008.[2] After six months, she was offered the job for illustrating the covers of the Cinderella: From Fabletown with Love series.[1] Her first interior sequential work was on Madame Xanadu #26.[2]

Technique and materials[edit]

Zullo uses acrylic wash to render her illustrations in black and white, and colors them with Adobe Photoshop.[1]


David Pepose, reviewing Zullo's work on Madame Xanadu #26 for Newsarama, praised her work on that issue, stating that "her style could not be more suitable for the pure emotion this tale evokes".[5]
