Shane Nitzsche (artist)
It was a hot summer day long ago, after his uncle bought him his first comic book, that Shane Nitzsche began to illustrate. Over the years, he has worked on a lot of exciting projects including The Practical Guide series of fantasy handbooks published by Wizards of the Coast, Sony Online Entertainment’s Legends of Norrath collectible card game and much more! With Monster Ninjas, Shane has come full circle back to his first love: comic books. (Oh, and that funny last name? It’s pronounced NIT-chee.)
