Jim Lee has officially been named as the new president of DC, according to The Hollywood Reporter. Lee will oversee the operations of the comic book company.
According to Warner Bros. Discovery, Lee will continue his primary duties at DC, where he currently leads the creative teams. He’ll also continue to lead creative efforts to “integrate DC’s publishing portfolio of characters and stories across all media, supporting the brands and studios of Warner Bros.Discovery…
Lee was one of the top artists at Marvel in the early 1990s when he and a few other creators left to form Image Comics, the publisher that shook the comics scene in that era. DC eventually acquired his Image Comics imprint, Wildstorm, a move that allowed him to slide into the executive ranks, where he became a co-publisher, one of the top creative forces at DC Comics.
Throughout his career, Lee has worked on a litany of high-profile comics, including illustrating Batman: Hush, Superman: For Tomorrow, and the New 52 run.
Congratulations Jim Lee!
