When did you realize you wanted to be an artist at Marvel?

RUSSELL DAUTERMAN: My memory of this is super hazy, but when I was a kid, I entered a drawing contest that Marvel had. I drew the Invisible Woman and Mr. Fantastic, and won a piece of art by a Marvel artist, of those same characters — it was in a frame alongside my rudimentary drawing and hung in my bedroom. That gave little me a lot of hope and was the first time I seriously thought I could be a Marvel artist.

What was your first Marvel comic?

RUSSELL DAUTERMAN: I was first introduced to Marvel through “X-Men,” the animated series — I was obsessed! — and jumped into X-Men comics because of that. UNCANNY X-MEN #302 is the first comic I vividly remember owning. I opened it up to an amazing two-page, vertical spread of Storm – I’ve been hooked ever since!
