Devmalya Pramanik

Q:What got you into comic books?
A: How do you fall in love? there is no answer… it just happened..Ii used to read a lot of comics when i was around 13..used to draw using references…and then i started to see comics for what they really are…started analysing how this stuff is done.. i started to take it seriously when i was around 16 or 17….comics are my first and last love…hehe..cant even start describing how important comic art is to me….

Q: Who is your favourite comic book character?
A:Till a time it was wolverine….it is even now but he got replaced by two characters- deadpool and the darkness..Deadpool is a character u just have to read, a very underdoggish character, but vey worth a read!!

Q: Who are your major artistic influences?
A: Hmmm…let me see….was very inspired by Leinil Yu….to tell you truth, reading Superman: Birthright was a turning point in my life….some other major influences are Doug Mahnke, John Romita Jr, C.P Smith, Tomm Coker….seeing their art makes me feel like giving my best….One of the most influential persons in my art life is Biboswan Bose….without him my art would not have been what it is.

Q: What comics do you currently read?

A: Currently been busy so am not getting time to read a lottta comics, hehe….but am currently read Batman:Under The Hood, awesome stuff by Winnick, Mahnke and Paul…..plan to read all volumes of Sandman….love Neil Gaiman’s works. read Watchmen and dug Alan Moore and Dave Gibbons….
