Artistic Dirtnap // Jim Lee

Earlier this week I blogged about one of my favorite Comic Artist Todd McFarlane, so to keep the same vibe going I present to you Jim Lee. Jim Lee is a Korean American born artist, writer and publisher. He first broke into the industry in 1987 as an artist for Marvel Comics, illustrating titles such as Alpha Flight and Punisher War Journal, before gaining a great deal of popularity on The Uncanny X-Men. In 1992 he and several other artists including McFarlane formed their own publishing company, Image Comics, to publish their creator-owned titles, with Lee publishing his titles through his studio, Wildstorm Productions, such as WildC.A.T.s and Gen¹³. Eschewing the role of publisher in order to return to illustration, Lee sold Wildstorm in 1998 toDC Comics, where he illustrated the successful year-long “Hush” and “For Tomorrow” storylines that appeared in Batman and Superman, respectively. On February 18, 2010, Jim Lee was announced as the new Co-Publisher of DC Comics with Dan DiDio, both replacingPaul Levitz. He has received a Harvey Award, Inkpot Award and three Wizard Fan Awards in recognition for his work. Here is some of the work you might recognize.
