Andrew MacLean

Meeting Andrew MacLean, the esteemed American comic book creator, at DesignerCon 2023 was truly a remarkable experience. Despite his broad spectrum of achievements, Andrew struck me as an incredibly kind and humble individual, passionately dedicated to storytelling. As the creator, artist, and writer of the Diamond Gem Award-winning Image Comics series, Head Lopper, Andrew’s work is a testament to his creative prowess.

His post-apocalyptic sci-fi graphic novel, ApocalyptiGirl: An Aria for the End Times (2015), published by Dark Horse Comics, garnered critical acclaim and was recognized with a YALSA award nomination. Andrew’s vivid imagination and artistic flare shone brightly in this work, as it has done throughout his prolific career.

Adding to his list of achievements, MacLean’s work has been published in over seven different languages, and he has collaborated with industry giants such as Marvel Comics, DC Comics, Warner Bros, and Hasbro on diverse projects spanning comics and animation.

Away from comics and animation, Andrew co-founded Laser Wolf Attack, a lifestyle brand that beautifully merges art and apparel with the street culture. His diversified contributions to the creative world hastruly set him apart and meeting him underscored, for me, the power of his humanness and dedication to his craft.
