We know Mike Allred as the artist for BUG! The Adventures of Forager, issue #7 of Doom Patrol and the MixTape comic that came with Into The Cave We Wander Picture disc, however, you may also know him for his work on Art Ops with Killjoy collaborator, Shaun Simon and also the CW hit iZombie.

And that’s just the tip of the iceberg in his very long and productive career. He has also worked on Silver Surfer, Madman and more!
Check out this excerpt from his site to learn more about him:
Michael ‘Doc’ Allred grew up in the 60’s and 70’s and was surrounded with the best in pop culture and a steady diet of music, movies and comic books including the three B’s: Beatles, Bond and Batman to the point of obsession.
So it should come as no surprise that he keeps a hand in film and music (He’s the lead singer and guitarist for The Gear), but comic books have always been a seminal source of joy for Mike and that joy remains the main ingredient in most of his work.
Allred first tasted success in the comics field with his wildly popular MADMAN series, which is currently being developed for a live action film with filmmaker Robert Rodriguez. His earlier work from GRAFIK MUZIK was turned into the cult hit movie G-Men from Hell directed by Christopher Coppola (featuring Robert Goulet as the Devil). Other work includes Red Rocket 7, his history of Rock and Roll told in the context of a sci-fi adventure storyl the Madman spin-off THE ATOMICS and his magnum opus, THE GOLDEN PLATES, where he’s illustrating the entire Book of Mormon.
Mike counts the secret to his success to be his wife, and creative partner, Laura Allred, who is is considered to be one of the best colorists in the business.
