Thomas Scioli is an American comic book artist and writer best known for working in a style similar to Jack Kirby.

Biography[edit]

Scioli's epic sci-fi/fantasy series The Myth of 8-Opus won a 1999 Xeric Grant[1] and attracted mild industry attention, earning him a small part illustrating the Fantastic Four: World's Greatest Comic Magazine miniseries (2001) and ultimately higher-profile projects at Image Comics: the miniseries Freedom Force (2005)[2] and the ongoing super-sci-fi-opera epic Gødland (with writer Joe Casey).[3] Scioli has stated that Gødland is "the best thing out there right now" and that he can imagine staying with the book for the rest of his career.

Scioli has attracted some criticism for the similarity between his art and Jack Kirby's, but he is comfortable with his style:

Scioli plans to collaborate with cartoonist Scott Mills for a new book called Zombie Kamikaze.[2][5][6]

Scioli was raised in Philadelphia and resides in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania.
