Beavers Discusses His Animated Comic Work

The World’s Finest: First off, tell us a little bit about yourself. Your background, your previous work, all that great stuff!

Ethen Beavers: I loved to play with clay as a child- I think they call it sculpting when you get older. I made cowboy dinosaurs. The clay got in the carpet, so clay was outlawed. So then I started drawing. I’ve been drawing ever since. I started looking for work in comics in 2003. Since then I’ve worked on Justice League Unlimited, Ben 10, TeenTitans Go!, Legion of Super-Heroes in the 31st Century, Samurai Jack, Clone Wars Adventures, and Indiana Jones Adventures. I’ve worked mostly at DC and Dark Horse. I have a tiny bit of experience as a Storyboarder in the animation field. I ink almost all of my own work.
