“Shawn Martinbrough’s work on iconic characters such as Batman, Captain America, Luke Cage, the Black Panther and Hellboy has been seen across the globe. From his work on the “Thief of Thieves” to helping create characters seen on movies such as “Deadpool” and “Justice League,” there’s no way you haven’t seen his work in some capacity.”

USA TODAY caught up with Shawn to talk about everything from Comic Con and James T. Kirk to the frustration of not being able to find work and the humbling power of storytelling.
