This Jim Lee Batman illustration was published in the 2010 hardcover Icons: The DC Comics & Wildstorm Art of Jim Lee. Lee has become the most influential Batman artist of the past two decades and this piece is a strong representation of his important body of work on what is arguably the single most popular character in not only comics but in all of popular culture. In his 84 years as one of the most important and popular superheroes in the world, Batman has been associated with numerous esteemed artists -- his creator Bob Kane and assistants like Jerry Robinson, Dick Sprang, and Shelly Moldoff in the 1940s and 50s; Carmine Infantino during the Silver Age and then Neal Adams at the dawn of the Bronze; Frank Miller in the 1980s, bringing forth a new but familiarly dark version of the hero. In the 21st century, Jim Lee is the artist that has defined the look of Batman more than any other. His work on the Dark Knight recalls the past greats while bringing a fresh perspective on the character, garnering him further acclaim within an already esteemed career.It is no surprise that Lee's work on Batman is not only among the most sought after original comic art of the Modern era, but ranks among the most coveted Dark Knight art of all time. Jim Lee has been one of the biggest artists in the comic book industry for over 30 years now. He got his start working for Marvel in the late 80s, illustrating Alpha Flight before shooting to superstar status on Uncanny X-Men. In the early 90s, Lee and several other artists formed their own publishing company, Image Comics, to publish their creator-owned titles, with Lee publishing titles such as WildC. S and Gen13 through his studio Wildstorm Productions.
