CareerEdit

Kenneth Rocafort has worked in various fields of the entertainment industry such as theatre, video game box art, storyboard for advertisement, comics, magazine, card game and toy box art. He was in charge of set design and preparation of the stage for diverse theatrical works inside and outside the University of Puerto Rico and he sometimes also designed the wardrobe. In animation field, he has worked in the area of storyboard and character design. He illustrated the toy boxes for G.I. Joe vehicles (R.O.C.C. and R.H.I.N.O.) for Hasbro and he also drew the box-cover for the PS2 video game Samurai Western.[3]

He first started in comics in 2006, with Top Cow, doing a fill-in issue of the Marc Silvestri-illustrated Hunter-Killer series, before moving on to Paul Dini's Madame Mirage series.[1]

In 2011, Rocafort began work with DC comics. From 2011 to 2012, he was the artist on DC's new Red Hood and the Outlaws.

In 2012, he worked on Superman (post New 52) with writing by Scott Lobdell.[4]

From 2014 to 2015, he worked on the new Teen Titans series (being relaunched with a new issue 1), written by Will Pfeifer.[5] Some promotional art for the series produced some debate over sexism in comics.[6]

In 2015, he began work on the All-New All-Different Marvel series, Ultimates, with writer Al Ewing.

His father and older brother both work as graphic designers.[3]

Rocafort, Justin Jordan, and Dan DiDio launched the Sideways series in 2018 as part of DC's "Dark Matter" line.[7][8]
