Ken Lashley draws superheroes with a distinct style. You can spot his work from across the comic book store. We’ve been fans of Ken’s for a long time, and he joins us regularly at events like New York Comic Con to draw at the SketchBook booth. He’s a crowd pleaser, for sure. In fact, there is always a dedicated group of fans who show up with home-made cookies for Ken — or something else equally delicious. At the last Comic Con event we attended, someone brought a big, beautiful cake!

Ken is a master of the hero comic book cover. These are just a few of our favorites. Follow him on Tumblr or on Instagram for more great work.

A visit with Ken

It’s easy to see why people like to be around Ken so much when you hear him talk. He’s a nice guy with a lot of enthusiasm and good cheer to share. We tried to capture some of that in the first take of our ongoing SketchBook hero video series. Come along with us as we visit Ken in his drawing space and learn more about what inspires him to create art for such revered DC and Marvel comics as Superman, Superboy, Suicide Squad, Team Seven, X-Men, and Black Panther.
