WHAT'S IT ABOUT?
This review is a little different, in that we are reviewing an artist's overall body of work versus just one title. This artists creates: Overwatch fan comics, Reapfield, Grumpy comics and Nerd and Jock comics. You can see all he has done (and support if you feel like being so kind) on his Patreon Page >
Marko Raassina, comic creator from Finland. Known as markraas.
As per his FAQ: "I’m just a regular socially awkward comic book artist, and i live in that small Nordic country called Finland. I’m not really doing anything with my life other than making bunch of comics. Would be nice if i can make living out of it someday."

HOW DOES IT ALL START?
This was the first sequential work we found on Markraas' Tumblr. You can immediately see the talent. This really has a Jeff Smith's Bone style and feel. We love it when black is used with boldness for contrast. You can also see the diversity of styles Markraas is capable of.
HOW OFTEN DOES IT GO?
Markraas is very prolific in terms of content. There are at least two comics every week plus loads of other cool art and posts.
Markraas maintains multiple strips, and each has a distinct style. So the diversity is fun. But first and foremost, you can tell he really loves the medium and is a total fanboy. It really shows and comes out in the work. Here is another example of the stylistic diversity:
WHAT'S NOT SO GOOD (IN YOUR OPINION ONLY OF COURSE)?
Well, this editor was once addicted to playing Overwatch (Lucio main). But every time we see fan art of the game, the temptation to relapse gets stronger. Plus, this is pretty funny and how many times has this happened right?
WHAT DON'T WE KNOW WE DON'T KNOW?
This is your brain. This is your brain on studies. Any questions?
WHAT DO YOU REALLY THINK?
We sincerely hope Markraas gets more exposure. Hopefully this will help.
WHAT SHOULD WE READ ON TABULIT LIKE THIS?
Markraas reminds us of another Tabulit creator who is equally prolific and we hope makes it big. Check out the work by Kristina Luu.
