|Shawn McManus is an American artist who entered the comic book field in the early 1980s with work for Heavy Metal and |
McManus gained wider attention when he illustrated two 1980s issues of Swamp Thing written by Alan Moore. He received
a nomination, with Alan Moore, for a 1985 Jack Kirby award for "Pog" in Swamp Thing 32. The story, an inventive science
fictional reinterpretation of Walt Kelly's Pogo, was written by Moore specifically for McManus, who rose to the challenge
with an appropriate Kellyesque art style.
Since then he has drawn issues of Omega Men, Batman, Doctor Fate, Fables, Cinderella, Sandman, Fairest and a pair of
limited series about the witch Thessaly written by Bill Willingham.
