In America, he's been called the "Comics Destroyer". In France, he's been called the "Jim Morrison of comics" and "Comics' Petit Prince". His work is translated into a number of languages on three continents. He's one of a handful of young cartoonists to be consistently gaining critical praise and media attention, appearing on the Sci-Fi Channel, Much Music, and elsewhere. He's been in everything from Spin to A+F to Entertainment Weekly to Jalouse to V Magazine to The Village Voice. And he's the only American cartoonist to have worked for Japan's largest manga publisher (Kodansha) for five-plus years.
He believes in the power of pop art and the universality of comics as a storytelling medium. He believes in the power of graphic design. His art style reflects a sensitivity toward the graphic and narrative traditions of the best comics of Europe, Japan, and America. He's a science fiction world builder who dreams on paper. "At his best," writes The Comics Journal, "Pope's drawings, loosely and densely rendered with long, sinuous brushstrokes, have the grace and fluidity of Asian calligraphy."
From his two-room studio in New York City, Paul Pope claims his goal is to create "World comics, 21st Century comics, stories in the comics medium, which can reach and speak to people everywhere."
