Educate me on Tom Scioli

I don't understand where he's come from,who he is and whats he done?

The first i heard of him was he threatened to retire and a lot of people were sad about it so i looked at his work and was even more puzzled its really different to the norm.

I would imagine a lot of people here may dislike it. I found myself strangely attracted to it. It feels wrong.

His Transformers vs. Gi Joe books are done in a retro style and it looks glorious.

Is he in anybody elses radar? Phone Post 3.0
