Boy Akkerman is a full-time comicbook artist and illustrator from Rotterdam, The Netherlands. There, he is mostly known for his Dutch superhero comic Captain Roffa from publisher Windmill Comics and as one of the artist behind the new Dutch comicbook magazine Hollandsch Metaal/Dutch Metal. He is also one of the artist of the ReQuest Corner, a popular feature of Dutch geekculture podcast Geekers op je Speakers (on which he also sometimes features as a guest-podcaster).

He has been breaking out of the borders of his beloved Holland with published work in several anthology comics in the States and is now the regular artist on Monkeybrain Comics all-ages superhero comic Captain Ultimate. For which he also draws the spin-off comic Milo & Ulti-mutt that is published in Erik Larsen’s iconic Savage Dragon series by Image Comics.

Last year he (in the company of comicbook greats like Howard Chaykin) was part of the anti-bullying and discrimination comic anthology RISE: Comics against Bullying. The comic is published by Northwest Publishing and all proceeds go to charity organisations such as GLAAD and Stand for the Silent.
