Corey Lewis


Corey Sutherland Lewis (also known as Rey or The Rey) is an American comic book creator. He is primarily known as the creator of Sharknife, published by Oni Press. Other works of his include PENG for Oni, and providing back-up comic strips for the Darkstalkers and Street Fighter comics for UDON. Rey also had a brief stint as the artist & writer of the Rival Schools comic book.

Lewis' work is notable for its combination of global youth culture influences, including martial arts, video games, American comic books and cartoons, Japanese anime and manga, graffiti, hip-hop, and indie rock. His work has often been compared to that of Bryan Lee O'Malley, and the two artists are friends. Lewis' art tends to be extremely stylized and make heavy use of sound effects. So far he has worked almost exclusively in the action genre. Lewis cites Paul Pope and Masashi Kishimoto (creator of Naruto) as his primary comics influences.

Rey is currently working on the follow-up to his 2005 debut graphic novel Sharknife entitled Sharknife Double Z.
