Artist of ‘Superman: Red Son' to appear
by Matthew Price Published: January 11, 2013

Panosian recently drew “X-Factor Forever” for Marvel and “Conan: Road of Kings” for Dark Horse. In his career, he's drawn high-profile characters including Captain America and Green Lantern. His time in the industry dates to the 1990s, with work on Image Comics including “Prophet.” According to a Newsarama interview, from 1998-2008, he worked on storyboards, commercial art and more, including work on the video game “Duke Nukem Forever.”

Most recently, Panosian drew the backup strip in “G.I. Combat” as part of DC Comics' “New 52.” His “Unknown Soldier” story was written by Jimmy Palmiotti and Justin Gray.

“For me, the most significant aspect of ‘The Unknown Soldier's' new incarnation was I wanted him to look like a cross between what you would see on today's battlefields and what we enjoy most from video games,” Panosian said at DCComics.com. “I also wanted to give him a constant reminder of his family for his own inspiration. The three marks on his outfit represent the family he's lost. It's almost like a tattoo he's wearing. That's who he's fighting for.”
