Frank Cho é um premiado artista de quadrinhos que hoje em dia trabalha principalmente para a Marvel Comics. O que pode dizer sobre este artista? Não só ele tem habilidades excepcionais em desenho de figura, mas também tem um gosto interessante para a composição de imagens.

Cho não recebeu nenhum treinamento formal como um artista. Ele começou a escrever e desenhar uma história em quadrinhos chamada University2 para The Diamondback  o jornal estudantil da Universidade de Maryland, College Park. Após a formatura, Cho adaptou elementos deste trabalho para o uso em uma faixa profissional, chamada Liberty Meadows. Cho assinou um contrato de 15 anos com o Creators Syndicate  que mais tarde percebeu foi excepcionalmente longo e, talvez por brincadeira, culpa de ter um advogado ruim. Cansado de censura da imprensa, Cho cancelou seu contrato e, finalmente, converteu Liberty Meadows para uma publicação mensal.

 

 

Cho has also drawn a wide variety of other professional material, including a new version of Shanna the She-Devil in 2005 for Marvel Comics. His Shanna series was originally meant to feature "mature" artwork including nude drawings of the heroine, but Marvel later decided to have Cho censor his already completed pages for the first five issues, and the 7-issue series did not feature nudity. However, Marvel plans to release a hardcover collection, which will contain the uncensored artwork.

 

 

In 2007, Frank Cho was the artist on Marvel Comics' flagship Mighty Avengers with writer Brian Bendis, though he left the book with issue #6. The work on those issues won him the Eagle Award as 2007 best penciler. He's also plotter and cover artist of Dynamite Entertainment's Jungle Girl.

 

 

Frank Cho has won many awards, including: the prestigious National Cartoonists Society's Awards for Best Comic Book and Book Illustration, the Eagle Award, the Charles M. Schulz Award for Excellence in Cartooning, Scripps-Howard Award for Best College Cartoonist, College Media Association for Cartooning, and the Max & Moritz Prize, for Best International Comic Strip. He was also nominated for the coveted Harvey and Eisner Awards (Frank's Website).
