About Me

Prentice Rollins, Self-portrait


I’ve been a professional illustrator and comicbook artist since 1993.  I have hundreds of credits with DC Comics, and have contributed art to every major character in the DC Universe.  I’ve worked on such bestselling projects as: DC: One Million, DC: 2000, JLA: Incarnations, Green Lantern: Rebirth, Green Lantern Corps, Flash: Iron Heights, Batman: The Ultimate Evil, Power Company, Impulse, JLA: Foreign Bodies, Dr. Fate, and Touch.  I was heavily involved with Milestone Media during its initial partnership with DC Comics in the 1990s, and contributed art to Hardware, Static, Icon, Blood Syndicate, and Heroes.  For Marvel Comics I worked on New X-Men. My publications include: How to Draw Sci-fi Heroes and Villains (Monacelli Studio/Phaidon, 2023), The Furnace (A Graphic Novel) (Tor Books, 2018), How to Draw Sci-fi Utopias and Dystopias (Monacelli Studio, 2016), The Making of a Graphic Novel (Watson-Guptill Publications, 2006), and Survival Machine (Stories), (Monkeysuit Press, 2002).  I was the featured artist of Jekyll Island Chronicles, Volume 3 (Top Shelf Comics, 2021).  I was co-founder and editor of Monkeysuit Press, which produced five highly-acclaimed comics anthologies between 1999 and 2005. 

I inked the cover of Wu-Tang Clan’s platinum selling hip-hop album Liquid Swords (pencils by Denys Cowan), and drew the animated interstitials for the original Broadway run of Avenue Q.  I did storyboard art and background designs for 101 Dalmatians: The Series, Sabrina, The Teenage Witch, Doug’s First Movie, and PB&J Otter (for Jumbo Pictures/Walt Disney Productions).  My other clients include: Celestial Pictures, Hong Kong, Smoke Magazine, MTV, Little Planet Publishing, BBC One, Skylarks Charity (London), and the website Analog Shift (for which I co-created and drew the serialized strip The Adventures of Jed Rex: Crush Depth.

I studied history and philosophy at The University of Southern California and Rutgers University.  I’ve taught philosophy at Rutgers University, pen and ink drawing at The School of Visual Arts, and comics drawing for Outclass Education (Beijing).
