Paolo Mottura is mostly known for his work for Disney and European comics. If you’re into fantasy, then check out this Italian artist!
Paolo Mottura has been working for Disney since 1989, for which he has already created hundreds of comics to this day. Micky & Minnie Mouse, a superhero version of Donald Duck and many more characters have gotten the Mottura treatment so far. To give you an idea of how important his work is: Paolo received a Golden Mickey for best Disney story in 1998.
He has also taken care of the comic version of the 2010 video game Epic Mickey, in which Mickey Mouse teams up with his forgotten predecessor Oswald the Lucky Rabbit and fights antagonists and bitter forgotten characters with a magical paintbrush. It’s probably the darkest story with Mickey as a protagonist, but it’s surprisingly fitting at the same time.
Paolo Mottura is also a name that rings a bell with many fans of European comics. He has put his talents to good use for series Vasten (Carême) and Deus.
