Artist Profile: Mitch and Bettie Breitweiser

Comic Booked Guest Writer 11/23/2012 Reviews

Mitch and Bettie Breitweiser are nothing short of an artistic power couple. Since 2005, they have been drawing their way through dozens of Marvel titles with Mitch laying down the pencils and inks and Bettie providing the colors.  Mitch and Bettie currently run their own illustration studio ‘Brietweiser Illustrations’.

Captain America MarvelThis dynamic duo’s list of comic book credits includes working on characters such as Captain America, Hulk, Winter Soldier, Deadpool and Madman. Companies such as Marvel/Disney, DC/Warner Brothers, AMC and Image Comics all number among their clients.

Mitch and Bettie Breitweiser - BuckyAlthough they have worked for a variety of comic book publishers the real standout of their careers has to be their work on Marvel’s Captain America. Notable contributions include the Captain America: Patriot miniseries, Captain America 615.1 and Captain America: America’s Avenger.

Mitch’s bold line-work coupled with Bettie’s evocative colors brings an undeniable sense of drama to every Cap picture they create. Their art has a certain vintage charm to it that was a perfect fit for Ed Brubaker’s run on the character.

Aside from Captain America, Mitch has worked on other big name Marvel characters such as the Hulk, Spider-Man and Deadpool, but it’s his work on Steve Rogers that has really caught the attention of fans and the industry. There’s something about Mitch’s style, a certain dignity he brings to every character he creates that gels so well with Captain America. Add in Bettie’s colors and you get iconic images of the character that really do speak for themselves.

Earlier this year, Bettie was nominated for the Harvey Award for Best Colorist. Bettie also currently colors Butch Guises’ pencils on Marvel’s Cap spin-off, Winter Soldier.
