Massimo Carnevale
Comic Artist - Massimo Carnevale

37 Covers by Carnevale

I must admit right away that the only justification for placing a page on Massimo Carnevale on this website is that I love his work. He has never produced for Fleetway, and I can find little information about him. What I do know is here: as are some magnificient covers! His artwork runs the gamut from science-fiction, fantasy and the macabre, to humour, history and the avante-guarde - and sometimes all together.

Massimo Carnevale started working for the Roman publisher Euria in the early 1990s drawing a few strips such as Martin Hell, but it was not long before his talent for cover work was discovered. He went on to draw many covers for the two mainstays of Euria, LancioStory and Skorpio. These comic magazines feature excellent stories by established artists like Enrico Breccia and Solano Lopez, but are also a showcase for new young talent. The success of the strips Dago, John Doe and Martin Hell, all of which originally featured in either LancioStory or Skorpio, led to the creation of their own magazines: and again Carnevale was recruited to draw the covers.

In 2003 Carnevale was "discovered" by the D.C. National Group of comics, where he is now working on the covers for the highly acclaimed DC/Vertigo series Y: The Last Man.

At Expocartoon III (2000) in Rome, Carnevale won the Caran D' Ache Italian Illustratore Prize as best artist: at  the Napoli Comic Festival in 2005, he was declared Best Artist.
