About The Illustrator
Zid was born 2 days after Christmas in 1983, and he is living his childhood dream drawing and painting what he has always been most passionate about: comics. He is a multidisciplinary artist based in Malaysia and was nominated at #8 in 10 Comic Book Creators To Watch in 2013 on Newsarama.com for his maiden project with Robert Napton. His career with Legendary Comics began with Trick ‘r Treat: Monster Mash in late 2015. This work relationship continued with the digital graphic novel prequel to the Netflix movie Spectral: Ghosts of War in 2016, and his biggest responsibility yet, Skull Island: The Birth of Kong in 2017. After a change of terrain with Lost in Space: Countdown to Danger, he returned to Skull Island for Kingdom Kong. In his free time (which is not a lot), you can see him updating his social media accounts with his slice of life comic as a work-from-home dad under the hashtag #DOAWFHD.
