Phil Noto is an American painter and comic book artist who is known for his work on such titles as Jonah Hex, X-23, Uncanny X-Force and, more recently, Black Widow. His work on The Infinite Horizon (a modern retelling of The Odyssey) with Gerry Duggan earned him an Eisner nomination for Best New Series.[1] Noto has also worked as a concept artist for video games such as BioShock.


According to Noto, he attended the Ringling School of Art & Design for three years before gaining an internship at Disney. This internship turned into a ten-year career there as a clean-up artist for animated work, including The Lion King, Pocahontas, The Hunchback of Notre Dame, Mulan, Tarzan, Lilo & Stitch, and Brother Bear. He began to get jobs as an artist for Marvel and DC, as well as Image and Dark Horse Comics after selling some of his fan art. One painting in particular was purchased by fellow comic book artist Tim Townsend, which sparked a friendship between the two.

Noto describes his art as "“retro paperback cover” style and cites Adam Hughes, Robert McGinnis, Mike Mignola and Alex Toth as influences.[2]
