If you’re really into American comic books, then you simply know who Jae Lee is. He has worked for DC, Marvel and sharpened his pencil for major series like Spider-Man, Captain America, Namo, Uncanny X-Men, X-Factor, The Sentry, Fantastic Four, Hellshock, WildC.A.T.S. Trilogy and Youngblood: Strikefile.
The dark style of this award winning Korean-American comic book artist is almost instantly recognisable. And in 1990, he became one of the youngest artists ever to work for a major publisher. It’s an honour having him at FACTS.
But we’re not the only ones celebrating his talent. He is an Eisner Award-winner for his work on Marvel’s The Inhumans. The art from his collaboration with writer Grant Morrison on Fantastic Four: 1234, was featured in an exhibition at The Society of Illustrators in New York City. And in 2007, Lee was chosen by Stephen King for a six year collaboration on the Dark Tower comics and novels.
Lee’s recent projects include Before Watchmen: Ozymandias and Batman/Superman.
His wife June Chung will be joining him to FACTS Spring Edition 2016, to give signatures of her own.
