Andrew Wildman
Andrew Wildman (sometimes credited as Andy Wildman) is a British artist, best known for his work in comics, mainly for Marvel Comics. Wildman cut his teeth on Marvel UK's titles in the late 1980s, including Galaxy Rangers, Thundercats, The Real Ghostbusters and, perhaps most notably, Transformers. His first strip work on Transformers came in #198 for the story Cold Comfort and Joy. He would rapidly ascend to being one of the key members of the title's art team, often working with inker Stephen Baskerville.\nWildman and Baskerville followed writer Simon Furman to the American Transformers title soon afterwards, providing the art for issues #69-74 and #76-80. His artwork, which often applied human characteristics to the robotic protagonists, was divisive amongst some fans but generally lauded for capturing the emotion of Furman's scripts. After the title was cancelled with #80, he continued to work for Marvel on various series, becoming the regular artist on X-Men Adventures (adaptations of the storylines from the popular 1990s cartoon series) and G.I. Joe. He briefly provided art for Transformers: Generation 2, drawing three pages of Transformers: Generation 2 #2 as a favour to Furman and editor Rob Tokar when the original artist, Derek Yaniger, fell behind. Further work for Marvel US included Spider-Man: The Arachnis Project (a 6 issue mini series), Venom: Carnage Unleashed (1995) (written by G.I. Joe scribe Larry Hama) and a four issue Black Cat series. His final work for Marvel at the time was as the regular artist for Spider-Man 2099 from #33 to 43.
