Jim Lee

It is said comics represent nearly every facet of life. The superior, the downtrodden, the out-of-luck and the lucky rub shoulders with the rich, the powerful, the helpless and of course, the alien. If the Ivy League needed representation in comics, this would come in the personage of Jim Lee. Graduating from Princeton with a degree in medicine, Jim, who originally is from South Korea, decided to try his hand at comic book art. 

This was a good decision, for in 1986, while working for Marvel Comics, Lee drew “Alpha Flight.” This series made him a critical success, and quickly put his name on the comic book map. But by no means could “Alpha Flight” compare to the success he garnered with the “X-Men,” a series which today remains as the best-selling comic of all time. 

With these triumphs under his wing, he left Marvel in 1992 to form Wildstorm Productions, where he created and illustrated “WILDC.A.T.S,” “Stormwatch,” “Deathblow,” “Union,” “Backlash,” “Team 7” and “GEN13.” Lee additionally was the co-founder of Image Comics. In 1998, Wildstorm became part of DC Comics, where Jim Lee continues to act as editorial director. 

Known for his distinctive cross hatching style and the use of the renaissance chiaroscuro, Jim Lee’s drawings and paintings have been defined as moody and insightful. It is as if one can actually see the characters thinking. Earning the respect of his peers, a notoriously difficult crowd to please, Lee’s efforts have recently been focused on such newer comics as “Divine Rights,” while also revitalizing Marvel Comics’ “Heroes Reborn” series, a series that features Captain America, Avengers, Iron Man and the Fantastic Four.
