I was introduced to Jae Lee’s artwork when he took over on Marvel’s Namor back in the early 90’s. He was one of the talented young artists that joined Image Comics in the mid 90’s, working on such titles as WildC.A.T.S. Trilogy and Youngblood Strikefile, before launching his creator-owned comic, Hellshock. Jae Lee returned to Marvel in 1998, when he collaborated with writer Paul Jenkins on a new 12 issue Inhumans series. His work on the Inhumans ushered in a new level of depth, and maturity to his work that would only grow, and grow into the next decade.

Other notable works are Stephen King’s Dark Tower comics adaptation, Fantastic Four 1234 with Grant Morrison, and The Sentry for Marvel. In addition to that, Jae Lee has become a highly sought after, and prolific cover artist; notably his recent string of covers for DC’s  New 52 Batman/Superman series, and the Jason Aaron Wolverine relaunch a few years ago.

Jae Lee was born in South Korea in 1972 and immigrated to the United States with his parents in 1977. He started his professional comics career at the age of 19, drawing short stories for Marvel’s anthology Marvel Comics Presents.

Jae Lee won an Eisner in 1999 for his work on the Inhumans, and was nominated for Best Cover Artist in 2002.
