Humberto Ramos reveals his favorite comic book characters to draw

"Being that guy who never have, you know, a triumph alone ... that's something that I always relate to." Ramos says

Superstar comic book artist Humberto Ramos has had a lot on his plate recently. With Strange Academy coming to an end, a never-ending buffet of Spider-Man content layed at his feet, plus a forray back into the creator-owned realm. The impact he has made over the years telling stories about young superheroes and iconic characters (particularly in the Marvel U), finding their place in the world combined with a unique art style has made Ramos one of the most immediately recognizable comic book artists working today.

In an in-depth chat, Popverse's Ashley V. Robinson caught up with Humberto Ramos earlier this year at Emerald City Comic Con to get to the bottom of why he loves Peter Parker- and characters like him - so much.

"Being that guy who never have, you know, a triumph alone," Ramos tells Popverse about why he connects to Peter Parker. "You know, back in the day there's something back on the side that doesn't work or the way it should be. There's some problems he has to solve even in the public side. You know, everybody cheers for you, blah, blah, blah. That's something that I always relate to. "

Here is our full 13-minute interview with Humberto Ramos.
