Conan calling: the best Conan the Barbarian comic-book, like, ever? (video).

Esad Ribic is not your typical creator of comic books. He is a comic book illustrator and animator from Croatia who is well-known for his work on several Marvel Comics series, including Loki, Silver Surfer: Requiem, Sub-Mariner: The Depths, Thor: God of Thunder, and the 2015 Secret Wars. He is one of the most renowned comic book artists in the business thanks to his distinctive style and meticulous attention to detail.

Who is Esad T. Ribic, though? What motivates him? Let’s look at the creator of the comics.

Ribic, a graphic designer who was born in Zagreb, Croatia, in 1972, earned a degree there from the School of Applied Arts and Design. He began creating comics in the early 1990s, creating brief strips and images for the German Gespenster Geschichten magazine and the Croatian Plavi magazine (Vjesnik) (Bastei Verlag).

Yet he did not become a household name in the comic book industry until he began working for Marvel Comics. 2004 saw Ribic illustrate four issues of Loki for Marvel Comics, which was warmly received by both readers and reviewers.

The Thor: God of Thunder series, which was launched in January 2013 by Ribic and author Jason Aaron, was ranked as the eighth-best Thor narrative by Comicbook.com. The series became a favourite among viewers thanks to Ribic’s attention to detail and ability to capture the character’s spirit.

Ribic was one of the artists working on the new Méta-Baron series by Alejandro Jodorowsky and Jerry Frissen when it was announced in 2015, but his chapters were never published because the project was cancelled. Ribic, though, did not let the setback depress him. He collaborated with author Jonathan Hickman to create the Secret Wars limited series, which was published to rave reviews in May.

Conan the Barbarian: Exodus, which Ribic wrote and illustrated in 2019, earned positive reviews from both fans and critics. In this video flashback, Ed and Jim delve into that topic.
