Joseph Michael Linsner - Dawn and Sinful Suzie

Joseph Michael Linsner is best known for his creation of Dawn. Since her first appearance in Cry for Dawn, 1989, the character has struck a chord with thousands of fans in an international level. I first had the opportunity of meeting Linsner at a comic book shop in Woodbridge NJ, when Cry for Dawn was first being published. He was kind to provide the below sketch, which I appreciate for it's simplicity, yet still evokes emotion. Dawn is the goddess of birth and rebirth, who is generally depicted as a young red-head with three-tears running down her left eye...

I was pleased to meet Linsner again and have the opportunity to obtain another sketch at the Comic Expo. Linsner provided a newer creation, Sinful Suzi, whose own publication was released in 2013 by Image Comics. Suzi is a mischievous demon-girl with a fondness for hellish pitchforks...

Linsner has worked on a crossover with Dawn and Vampirella, painted covers for all of the major comic publisher including the titles Wolverine, Black Cat, Killraven, Justice League, Conan...
One of his proudest moments was getting to illustrate a short story written by Stan Lee for "Actor Comics Presents"... Art of Linsner

Happy Friday the 13th
