Project Description

Tim Sale

Appearing: Friday, Saturday, and Sunday

Tim Sale is an Eisner Award-winning comics artist who began doing art for the series MythAdventures in 1983 and was soon working on Thieves’ World.

The body of Sale’s comics work has been with collaborator Jeph Loeb. The duo, credited in their comics as ‘storytellers’, produced popular work such as the “Year 1”-centered Batman: Legends of the Dark Knight Halloween Specials, Batman: The Long Halloween, Batman: Dark Victory, as well as Superman for All Seasons and Catwoman: When in Rome. At Marvel Comics, the team has produced the so-called “color” books such as Daredevil: Yellow, Spider-Man: Blue, and Hulk: Gray. A Captain America: White limited series was announced in 2008 but only a #0 issue was published. The long-delayed project finally saw print in September 2015.

With Darwyn Cooke, Sale launched the Superman Confidential series in 2007.

Tim Sale worked on artwork for the television program Heroes, on which Sale’s frequent collaborator Jeph Loeb served as a writer and producer. Sale’s artwork appeared in the show as the work of the precognitive artist Isaac Mendez, as well as other artists on the show. Eric Powell was hired as the colorist for Sale’s work. Additionally, the font used throughout the show in the various captions and credits was created by Sale and was based on his handwriting style.

He lives in Seattle with his two dogs.
