Moxee Washington Native Draws Spider-Man For Marvel Comics
One such young man that is living his dream of creating comic books was born and raised just a few miles up the road from the Tri-Cities in the little town of Moxee Washington.
Clayton Crain who grew up in Moxee Washington knew he wanted to be a comic book artist when he first picked up a copy of Amazing Spider-Man #315
Ironically, that's an issue drawn by another Pacific Northwest native Todd McFarlane who went on to create Venom and Spawn. Crain knew from that moment on, he wanted to be a comic book artist.
Comic Book Artist Clayton Crain Was Born And Raised In Moxee Washington
Crain has been a comic book illustrator since 1998 and he's worked on everything from Spider-Man to Ghost Rider for Marvel Comics. Crain also got to do work on Spawn for Todd McFarlane (who incidentally drew) that very first comic book Crain picked up.
If you are looking for his earliest works as your thumbing through old comic books at Adventure Underground, Shadowman for Acclaim Comics #16-20 are the books to be looking for.
Crain has been back to the Northwest and even done Comic-Cons in Seattle and Portland. He even did an in-store signing at Ron's Coin and Collectables in Yakima, his old stomping grounds, last year.
