Happy Birthday Frank Quitely!

January 18, 2011

Born today in Scotland in 1968, comic book artist Frank Quitely is best known for his work on New X-Men, All Star Superman, Batman and Robin, We3, and The Authority.

His real name is Vincent Deighan, and his pen name is a spoonerism of “quite frankly,” adopted early in his career when he didn’t want his family to know about the underground comic (Electric Soup) he was working on. His work is distinctive, highly detailed, gritty, and realistic, and instantly recognizable as only coming from Frank Quitely.

Frank’s work has earned him four Eisner Awards. For more of his art, check out his gallery at the Comic Art Community. Happy birthday, Frank!
