Arthur Suydam's Groundbreaking "Adventures of Cholly and Flytrap" Finds New Home at Titan Books!
London-- Long considered one of the ground-breaking stories of it's time, Arthur Suydam's "The Adventures of Cholly & Flytrap" is now available for the first time as a complete edition form Titan Books, featuring bonus material and remastered pages, never before available.
Arthur Suydam is an award-winning writer, artist and innovator. His work on the smash hit series "Marvel Zombies" (Winner of the Spike Scream Award for Best Writer, Best Artist and Best Comic of the Year), helped prompt a worldwide zombie explosion. Also known for his work on "Deadpool," "Batman vs. Predator" and more, Suyam's awards also include the Spectrum Gold Award, the San Sebastian Film Festival Lifetime achievement Award, the University of Maryland Lifetime achievement Award and more.
Listed in the "Top 100 Greatest Artists," Arthur and contemporaries like Richard Corben are credited with revolutionizing comics by first introducing the techniques of fine art into mainstream comics. For Suydam, this illustrative knack came naturally. His Great Uncles on his father's side: James Suydam and Henry Suydam were among the dozen artists known as the influential Hudson River Painters who helped gain American fine arts recognition on the world stage circa 1861. While the artworks of architectural artist E.H. Suydam hang in the White House, Museum of New York and the National Academy Museum among others. His mother, Juliette, a native of Montreal, was also an avid painter, so the love of his craft was instilled in him at an early age-- clearly shines through in the lush and evocative pages in "Cholly and Flytrap."
One of Arthur Suydam's other definitive works, "Mudwogs," will also be available to grace coffee tables! It's slated for a hardcover treatment by Titan next year.
