The 5 Question Interview #25 with Nick Gribbon

We put 5 Questions to Dead All Over's Nick Gribbon...

Who are you and what do you do?

I'm Nick and I am an Illustrator. I have a BA Illustration degree from the University of Gloucestershire.

I started Dead All Over a few years ago (2013) which is a platform for my horror and zombie pop culture mash up artwork. I draw by hand and make limited edition prints of my artwork to sell at comic book conventions.

What can people expect to find at your table at True Believers?

Lots of Limited Edition prints of pop culture comic-book/TV/Movie characters zombiefied! I also sell original artwork, badges, greetings cards, patches, and do commissions.

What’s your favourite thing about what you do?

I am a comic book geek myself so I love going to comic book conventions, with Dead All Over I get to go and experience the convention from the other side of the table and meet a lot of really cool people. (You'll see me wandering the convention floor too looking for cool stuff, or getting autographs!).

What was the first comic you collected?

The first comic I remember reading regularly was Ann Nocenti and John Romita Jr's Daredevil run from the late 80's early 90's. The story was dark and bleak in tone, but thats what I like about the character. And I've always like Romita Jr's artwork since, especially his Spidey run.

But, the first comics I collected regularly were The X-Men and Spider-Man new series' that came out in the early 90's.

If you had to recommend one comic (or story arc) to people, which would it be?

This is tough, (I bet everyone say's that), I really enjoyed the Captain America run by Brubaker and Epting which introduced The Winter Soldier. I thought that was great storytelling and inventive way to bring back a character.

The Walking Dead comic is great, and the first two Marvel Zombies books of course!

 

Thanks Nick.
