Some of my other comics.
Before creating some of my newer fantasy projects I illustrated four classic pulp stories as part of the Adventures In Pulp Anthology. Each story is a mini-comic of its own and has its own unique vibe. Click on your favorite below to enter a new world of adventure.
ARTIST, ILLUSTRATOR & WRITER
My name is Matthew Childers. I am a comic book artist, illustrator, designer, sometimes writer and most of all a storyteller. I have been creating stories and drawing in the back of books since I was a little kid in overalls living in Charlotte, North Carolina. I grew up reading X-Men, Star Wars, Transformers… all the biggies and knew one day I’d make comics of my own.
