From X-Force To The Dandy Bear – The True Hollywood Story Of Adam Pollina

Louise Oddball writes,

There was a time during the 90s when Adam Pollina was firmly ensconced atop the A List of comic book artists at Marvel during the 90s.  At the innocent age of 23 he was already drawing X-Force with writer Jeph Loeb on drums and guitar.

Over that tumultuous decade he'd work, going back and forth between DC and Marvel and even did work for Image and Top Cow. A graduate of Rhode Island School of Design, Adam's work was never as bombastic as say a Rob Liefeld or a Mark Silvestri – he always seemed preoccupied with trying to bring the Masters to mainstream comic book art.

Where is Adam now, you wonder?

Bali.  Since 2010.

And while he's kept pen in hand this whole time, Adam also founded a jewelry line and bespoke fashion and decor studio for private clients.

Most recently, however, he's gone from mutants to manscaping with the launch of The Dandy Bear Grooming Comb!

Let Adam explain in his own words…

(There's something comforting about a comic creator selling his wares directly, rather than rattling a cup on Kickstarter, no?)
