Shawn Martinbrough is the author of "How to Draw Noir Comics: The Art and Technique of Visual Storytelling", published by Random House and reprinted in several languages. He is a critically acclaimed creator/artist whose DC, Marvel and Dark Horse Comics projects include "Batman: Detective Comics", "Luke Cage Noir", "Captain America", "The Black Panther" and "Hellboy: Secret Nature".

Shawn has co-created characters featured in the blockbuster 20th Century Fox feature film, "Deadpool", the animated "Batman: Gotham Knights", the FOX television series "GOTHAM", "The GIFTED" and the "JUSTICE LEAGUE" feature film.

Shawn is the artist of “Thief of Thieves”, published by Skybound/Image Comics. The acclaimed graphic novel crime series is written by Robert Kirkman, creator of the AMC television series, “The Walking Dead” and award winning author Andy Diggle.

Inspired by Shawn’s TEDx Talk, which explored storytelling and themes of inclusion, The George Lucas Foundation consulted with Shawn to develop the Lucas Museum of Narrative Art Summer Studio. Co-hosted by the Boys and Girls Club in South Central Los Angeles, Shawn worked with a team of artists and educators to provide an intensive two week workshop culminating with each student creating their own mini comic book.
