Ibraim Roberson

Ibraim Roberson is well known within the world of comic illustration in a number of roles. He began his artistic career working for Avatar Press with Max Brooks in The Zombie Survival Guide - Recorded Attacks Graphic Novel. He also worked for the biggest publishers in the  comic book world such as Marvel and DC Comics.

He has credit as cover artist, pencil artist, and inks artist for such comics as Akith #1, X-Men Origins Gambit One-Shot #1, Second Coming #2, X Necrosha One-Shot 31, Halloween Special ' 09, Catwoman and JLA:Cry For Justice among many others. See the Gallery section below.

One critic described his style for the Max Brooks’s Zombie Survival Guide: Recorded Attacks as is “a mixture of a sketchiness signaled by a variety of shifting weights across a line, but it’s laid down on a clean grid of perspective points, with strong levels of detail in the minutiae that both ground his work, but also give the appearance of an architectural drawing. And for figures and select backgrounds he adds an ink wash to be cultured later that separates and defines the characters on the page.”

This website was created to promote Ibraim Roberson’s work, around the time of the 2009 release of The Zombie Survival Guide: Recorded Attacks illustrated by him that featured cavemen, the Roman legions, and African slaves battling the undead with varying degrees of success. At some point the site’s domain expired and along with it the website.  Recently I discovered that the domain was available, so I bought it with the goal of recreating as much of its original content as possible from archived pages. I did not want someone else to purchase the domain and re-purpose the site for something that had nothing in common with his original website.

This talented Brazilian artist’s work is certainly prevalent on the web with just a google search of his name. But I felt, as a fan, that I wanted to bring back as much on his old site’s content as possible. Unfortunately, not all his images from the original site were available. However, I have attempted to give visitors who find this site enough content and examples of his early work for them to decide if they want to search elsewhere on the web for more examples or to purchase. At one point this site allowed visitors to commission Ibraim Roberson​ to create a one, two,or three character  illustration for them.

Recorded Attacks – The Movie?
julho 22nd, 2010 by ibraim
“Paramount have optioned both Max Brooks’ Zombie Survival Guide and its Recorded Attacks spin-off.”
“The Zombie Survival Guide is a survival manual that we’re all going to need by, I’d say, 2018 at the latest. Recorded Attacks began as an appendix in that book, recounting what historical evidence there is of zombie uprisings throughout the millennia. Lately, it has been translated into a comic book with art by Ibraim Roberson. All of the above are included in Paramount’s deal.”

More from Second Coming!

Hello folks!
I want to share some more pages from Second Coming, including some new pages of SECOND COMING #2 Chapter 14.
Please, let me know what you think!

Here we go with some news about ‘Second Coming’, I’m doing chapters 3, 7 and 11.
“IGN Comics: How far back in the planning stages for all these X-Men crossovers did you guys start thinking about Second Coming? Was this always the intended endgame for Messiah Complex?
Nick Lowe: It was inevitable once we put in the plan for House of M to, at some point, get here. Messiah Complex came about because of House of M, and as soon as we ended Messiah Complex with Cable going into the future with Hope, we had started to plan how she was going to come back. We knew what kind of person we wanted Hope to be. It was really just a matter of fleshing out the details. One of those details that got fleshed out maybe a year-and-a-half ago was Bastion’s role. That came into fruition through Craig Kyle and Chris Yost’s plans for X-Force and it seemed like a really good match for this story. The idea of this Sentinel from the future trying to exterminate all mutants and Hope being a main target. It just seemed to make sense to us.”

ZOMBIE SURVIVAL GUIDE: RECORDED ATTACKS

Those who don’t learn from history are condemned to repeat it. From the Stone Age to the information age, the undead have threatened to engulf the human race. They’re coming. They’re hungry. Don’t wait for them to come to you!

This is the graphic novel the fans demanded: major zombie attacks from the dawn of humanity. On the African savannas, against the legions of ancient Rome, on the high seas with Francis Drake . . . every civilization has faced them. Here are the grisly and heroic stories–complete with eye-popping artwork that pulsates with the hideous faces of the undead.

Organize before they rise!

Scripted by the world’s leading zombie authority, Max Brooks, Recorded Attacks reveals how other eras and cultures have dealt with–and survived–the ancient viral plague. By immersing ourselves in past horror we may yet prevail over the coming outbreak in our time.
