Whilce Portacio got his start in comics 30 years ago and in that time he's lent his talents to nearly every major publisher in the business. In addition to illustrating X-Factor, The Punisher, and Spawn, among others, he was also one of the seven co-founders of Image Comics, one of the biggest names in indie comics publishing.

Now, Portacio is spending his time doing cover art for some of the biggest series in comics, including DC's Suicide Squad and a brand new Hasbro event from IDW.

We caught up with Portacio during San Diego Comic Con to find out what he's most excited about working on these days, and he let us in on what it's like running his own studio.
