Icons: The DC Comics & Wildstorm Art of Jim Lee Book Review


About the Book: One of the most successful and popular artists to work in comics, Jim Lee is revered by fans worldwide thanks to his hyper-dynamic artwork and innovative character and costume design.Now, his work on Batman and Superman — not to mention his legion of WildStorm heroes including WildC.A.T.s, Divine Right and Deathblow — is celebrated in this beautiful hardback, which includes an exclusive interview with Jim Lee, a tour of his studio and hundreds of full-colour illustrations and pencils spanning his entire career! Plus an all-new cover by Lee and an exclusive, all-new eight-page comic strip, written by Paul Levitz (Legion of Super-Heroes) with art by Lee!



Our Take: The Icon here isn't just the comic book characters featured in this book, but the artist that is showcased...the great Jim Lee.  Lee has created a style that has spanned decades, influenced thousands and most certainly created some of the most iconic and comfortable images of our favorite heroes!


This book showcases his dc comics batman and superman work along with Deathblow, Wildstorm and a few others.  The best parts, for me, are definately the Batman features, which open the book.  Everything from character design tests to cover sketches and development art for action figures and statues!  This is the ultimate book for any fan of Lee's work!
