Mario Boon (born 15 August 1974; age 40) is a Belgian comic book artist. He has penciled, inked, lettered, and colored books since the age of 17. He began illustrating children's books and magazines and by 2000, he had published his first children's book, De Kip van Huub. He worked on a comic series about a punk band named X!nk for the Flemmish publisher Dupuis and started the pulp-deluxe website for aspiring young talent.
In 2007 he did all of the artwork, including colors and letters, for the "Persistent City" story in the HOPE: New Orleans graphic novel from Ronin Publishing. He also worked for Image Comics on their Texas Strangers series, penciling, inking, and coloring the two issues released. Later the same year, he began contributing to IDW Publishing's Star Trek line with color work on a few of their mini-series, before becoming the main color artist on Year Four: The Enterprise Experiment.
