Zia Comics shout out from Jorge Corona.
Artist Jorge Corona rose fast in the comics world, jumping feet-first out of a Masters in Fine Arts from the Savannah College of Art and Design and into big-name titles like Teen Titans Go! and We Are Robin, and creator-owned titles Feathers and Goners. Now he’s got the trophies to show for it. Corona received the Russ Manning Promising Newcomer Award at last month’s Eisner Awards, sharing the title along with Moon Knight artist Greg Smallwood. Corona spoke with Dork Shelf about his big win, Goners and his life as an artist in Venezuela.
