Last June, the Marvel Art Atelier invited aspiring comic book artists for a training program, which is now on display at the Jack Kirby Legacy Gallery alongside a collection of artwork by the world’s most iconic Marvel artists.
During the program, a class of mentees unleashed their creativity under the expert guidance of Marvel artists Giuseppe Camuncoli and Olivier Coipel along with Stormbreakers artists Peach Momoko and Natacha Bustos.
After a series of challenges, including a final 24-hour challenge to draw an entire comic page, Federica Mancin ended up selected as the strongest prospective mentee of the week on the basis of her work. She won her first official Marvel assignment in person by Marvel Comics Editor-In-Chief C.B. Cebulski, and fans can see her artwork this October when she fills in for series artist Federico Vicentini in MILES MORALES: SPIDER-MAN #11, where we’ll see Spider-Man and Blade face off against the newest villain, Hightail.
“Having the opportunity to work on a Miles Morales issue as my first job at Marvel has been a dream come true as he is my favorite Marvel character,” Mancin shared in a Marvel press release. “I have enjoyed every second of it, the chance to draw Miles swinging across New York or throwing webs at his enemies, of course all the action sequences were super fun to me, as I love trying to find ways to convey energy and motion through the page. I have also enjoyed bringing to life other cool characters like Blade or Hightail as they make the adventure even more gripping and thrilling. I think it’s going to be an amazing and spooky journey!”
MILES MORALES: SPIDER-MAN #11 is available on October 18th. While you wait, check out Mancin’s artwork featured below.
