X-Men Artist Marcus To Teams-Up with Marvel's Voices

Angélique Roché sits down for an exclusive interview with the 'Age of X-Man: Next Gen' artist!

When we're young, our parents can have a major influence on how we see the world and how our talents are fostered. And that was definitely the case for artist Marcus To, who was first introduced to drawing by his mother.

While his parents also enrolled Marcus in music lessons and other activities, drawing would be his first love. The Canadian, who has a knack for drawing Super Hero ensembles, became a comic book fan early in life. His love of drawing eventually led to him to challenge himself to convey stories through art inspired by novels based on Marvel characters. Eventually, he would develop his own stories and even his first comic book in high school.

Now Marcus—a successful comic book artist, avid hockey fan, and karaoke aficionado—belongs to an artist collaborative in Toronto.

I spoke with Marcus about his work on a current run of AGE OF X-MAN: NEXT GEN and visually answering the question of what a world looks like for teen mutants when mutants are no longer hunted. We also spoke about his journey as a comic book artist, his comic influences, and how drawing Logan (the chicken) has been one of his biggest artistic challenges to date.
