Hope Strikes Back Podcast
Sal Velluto first broke into comics drawing Power Pack for Marvel way back in 1988. Since then, he’s worked on a number of titles for the publisher including Moon Knight, The Silver Surfer, and a 32 issue run on Black Panther to name a few. He has also worked with a number of other publishers including Acclaim, CrossGen, and many others. Sal eventually landed at DC Comics where he helped create Justice League Task Force. He additionally also worked on various issues of Justice League of America and Justice Society of America as well as some occasional work on Aquaman and The Flash. Since 2007, he has been one of the main artists on The Phantom stories produced for the Swedish Fantomen comic book.
Last September, Sal was at FanX 2018 in Salt Lake City and took a few minutes to chat with us. Listen as he discusses his time with Marvel, what seeing Black Panther on the big screen meant to him, and what it was like stepping in as an artist on a beloved character with a very long history.
