Jim Lee is the world famous comic book artist, writer, editor and publisher who has worked on books like X-Men, Punisher, All-Star Batman and Robin and WildC.A.T.s. He first broke into the industry in 1987 as an artist for Marvel Comics. In 1992 Lee and several other artists formed Image Comics, to publish their creator-owned titles, with Lee publishing his titles through his studio, Wildstorm Productions. Leaving the role of publisher to return to illustration, Lee sold Wildstorm in 1998 to DC Comics where he continued to run Wildstorm as a DC imprint. Lee still made time to illustrate high profile books for DC Comics, like Batman: Hush and Superman: For Tomorrow. Jim Lee is now the co-publisher of DC Comics along with Dan DiDio.
