Press Release: Rob Granito- Comics Most Wanted

[11 Apr 2011 | by | 21 Comments]

Mr Rob Granito: “My thing is, I never want to try and hurt anyone, you know. I mean I messed up in not properly listing the homages in my work. But dude thats all it was, thats all it was. The fans, the kids, they like to have those tributes to covers and stuff they liked growing up. I saw that one Alex Ross did, well he did a few, and noone is calling HIM a fraud. Alex Ross did those silverage Marvel covers right? Its a homage, I am creating some iconic imagery for the fans. Thats the thing. It was never about the money with me its about those fans who smile when they see the art on the wall when they go home.”
