Mark Sparacio studied sequential art under the legendary Will Eisner at the School of Visual Arts in Manhattan. While still in school, Mark received his first professional job to do a painting for the movie poster for The Draughtman’s Contract. This opportunity resulted in a long run as a freelance illustrator for the advertising industry.
When the market for illustration in New York collapsed after 9/11, the door opened for Mark to return to his first love, comic books. His cover credits include Billy Tucci’s Shi, DC’s Green Lantern and Sgt. Rock, Marvel Comics’ Heroes for Hire, Comics Buyer’s Guide, Alter Ego, Comics Values Annual, and The Overstreet Price Guide.
Mark’s interior work includes Jonah Hex #34, Captain Action, and Battle for L.A.. He also created paintings for card sets for UpperDeck/DC Comics and for Topps’ Wacky Packages and Garbage Pail Kids.
Constantly developing new ideas and creating the corresponding artwork, Sparacio lives with his wife, Susan in Boca Raton, FL.
Mark is the penciler and cover artist for Omega Paradox, which he co-created with Ian Ng.
