 About the Artist 

Lee Bermejo is an acclaimed comic book artist and writer who has gained a reputation for his distinctive style and attention to detail. Born on December 7, 1977, in New York City, Bermejo grew up in Queens and developed an interest in art at an early age. He was influenced by the works of classic artists such as Frank Frazetta and Norman Rockwell, as well as by the contemporary comic book artists of the 1980s and 1990s. After graduating from the School of Visual Arts in 1999, Bermejo began working for DC Comics as a cover artist and illustrator. His first major project was the graphic novel "Batman: Noël," which he both wrote and illustrated. The book, which was released in 2011, was a critical and commercial success, earning Bermejo a nomination for an Eisner Award. Bermejo has since worked on a number of high-profile comic book projects for DC Comics and other publishers. Some of his most notable works include "Joker," a standalone graphic novel that explores the origin and psychology of Batman's arch-nemesis, and "Lex Luthor: Man of Steel," a series that follows the perspective of the Superman villain.

Bermejo's style is characterized by his use of heavy, dark lines and a gritty, realistic aesthetic. He is also known for his attention to detail, particularly in his depictions of facial expressions and body language. His work often explores the darker, more complex aspects of superhero mythology, examining the psychology and motivations of characters that are often portrayed as one-dimensional villains or heroes. In addition to his work in comic books, Bermejo has also worked as a concept artist for video games and films. He provided concept art for the 2016 film "Suicide Squad," as well as for the video games "Batman: Arkham Origins" and "Injustice: Gods Among Us." Bermejo's work has earned him numerous accolades and awards, including multiple Eisner Award nominations and wins. He has been praised for his unique vision and his ability to push the boundaries of the comic book medium. Today, he is widely regarded as one of the most influential and innovative comic book artists of his generation.
