What He Does: So there you are in school, just trying to dull the pain of public education by quietly reading an issue of The Maxx (For the sake of narrative in this case you're me, it's the '90s, and you better believe you're wearing JNCOs). Suddenly, the teacher swarms down upon the and relieves you of your reading material because you're not paying attention. She says you'll get it back at the end of class but do you? Do you ever really?
Winston Williams is proof positive that you don't. He's been drawing since he could remember, but it was a friend of his mother's that led him down his true path as a comic artist. She was an elementary school teacher, and she handed him a box full of confiscated comics from an entire year. Initially he began just copying the art, but eventually got good enough to begin branching out into his own characters.
His latest work is a comic book called The Soul, written by Jose Alonso. It follows a Houston Police Department struggling to maintain law and order in a not-to-distant dystopia future. Currently the first issue is available at Third Planet.More »
