Ancestor is the first graphic novel Matt Sheean and Malachi Ward have collaborated on together. Previously they served as artists for Brandon Graham’s Prophet series for Image Comics, and have provided artwork for Star Trek: Starfleet Academy for IDW and Burn The Orphanage for Image. Matt has contributed to Adventure Time for Boom, Peow Studio’s Time Capsule anthology and published the acclaimed short comic Fugue. Malachi just released his first collection of short comics, From Now On, including work for Fantagraphics, NoBrow, The Best American Comics series, Top Shelf, and Study Group Magazine.
Matt and Malachi’s method of collaboration is unique in the world of comics, blurring the line between traditional roles such as writer, penciller, inker, colorist and letterer. The two creators work on these elements together from the conception of the idea all the way through to sending files to print.
