Kaare Andrews is a Canadian comic book writer, artist and filmmaker who hails from Saskatoon. He is most known for his work on Spider-Man, Iron Fist, Renato Jones, and Incredible Hulk. Andrews has a diverse drawing style, which ranges from hyper realistic to the more cartoonesque. He was the first recipient of The Shuster Award for Outstanding Artist for his work on Spider-Man: Doctor Octopus.


Andrews' early career began with the writing of short stories.[2] Andrews became a member of the Writer's Bloc club that originated on Wizard Magazine's Wizard World website.[citation needed]

Andrews landed a job at Marvel Comics. His work at Marvel has been featured across many series, including; Incredible Hulk, Iron Fist, Ultimate X-Men, Hawkeye, and The Amazing Spider-Man.[citation needed] Andrews has created several characters including Mangaverse Spider-Man for Marvel Mangaverse, a martial arts spin on the character which was popular enough to spin off into another mini-series (written by Andrews), toys and videogames. In 2006, Andrews wrote and drew a four-issue mini-series known as Spider-Man: Reign; set 35 years in the future, starring a retired Spider-Man.[3] Spider-Man: Reign was named one of the 25 greatest Spider-Man stories.[citation needed]

Andrews wrote, pencilled, inked and colored the 2014 relaunch of Iron Fist: The Living Weapon for Marvel Comics.[citation needed]

Andrews has also done work designing album covers for artists including the Beta Band's third studio album Heroes to Zeros and Tegan and Sara's 2002 album, If It Was You, as well as directing their music video "Living Room". In 2004, Andrews began to expand his work into the film industry, directing short films and PSAs.[4]

On October, 2010, Andrews released his debut feature film Altitude starring Jessica Lowndes and Julianna Guill,[5] a thriller about five friends on a small aircraft lost in a supernatural storm.[6] Altitude was named one of the Top 15 Giant Monster Movies Of The 21st Century.[citation needed]
