The multi-award winning Suydam climbed to the top of the comic book cover game with his work on the insanely popular Marvel Zombies series. His cover art has appeared numerous times over, and has been used on multiple different types of Marvel merchandise.

With the help of the MCU's "What If...?" and the previews for "Doctor Strange In The Multiverse of Madness", the Marvel Zombies have jumped back to the front of the Marvel party. But Suydam's work goes beyond the zombies. His cover-work has appeared on the books of Ghost Rider, The Avengers, Fantastic Four, and Thor.

There are two other titles that he's worked on that are getting really hot in the comic book world right now. He's done multiple covers for Moon Knight and Ghost Rider as well. Let's not forget his run of covers on Deadpool: Merc With a Mouth, including issue #7, the first appearance of Lady Deadpool.
