STEVE RUDE

Steve, a lanky (6-foot-5) Wisconsinite nicknamed "The Dude" considers Jack Kirby one of his biggest influences. To King Kirby's streamlined dynamism, Steve has added his own style of polish and attention to detail which has made his work popular with fans.

Nexus, an offbeat science fiction superhero written and co-created with Mike Baron, remains his most sustained and best-known work to date. Steve has won much industry recognition, including the Russ Manning Newcomer Award in 1983, and two will Eisner Awards for artistic excellence. Rude is one of the hardest working artists in the field, constantly striving to improve his work. Much of his practice, model sketches, exercises, and experiments with new techniques can be found in his legendary sketchbooks. His most recent works include Thor: Godstorm, Captain America: What Price Glory?, and The Moth (due out from Dark Horse later this year).
