Genre


Kieth first came to prominence in 1984 as the inker of Matt Wagner's Mage, his brushwork adding fluidity and texture to the broad strokes of Wagner's early work at Comico Comics. In 1989, he drew the first five issues of writer Neil Gaiman's celebrated series The Sandman, but felt his style was unsuited to the book (specifically saying that he "felt like Jimi Hendrix in The Beatles") and left, handing over to his former inker Mike Dringenberg.

“it's the lies that get us through life, right?”
Sam Kieth, Arkham Asylum: Madness

“I can hear the bunny all the time now. Even when I'm outside, under my tree.
I'm mad at the bunny for being sick and bothering me.
For being...alive.”
sam kieth, The Maxx, Vol. 2

“The price was physical toll. Money does little good back here. It could not buy the fit feeling that surged through my arms and shoulders. It could not buy the feeling of accomplishment. I had been my own tour guide, and my own power had been my transportation. This great big country was my playground, and I could afford the price it demanded.”
Sam Keith, One Man's Wilderness
