Tim Sale has been a household name for comic book fans for about a decade now.
While some of us were lucky enough to notice this diamond in the rough when he was working on projects like Grendel in the early 90s (and even fewer of us who caught his earliest work in the mid-80s on series like MythAdventures and Thieves World), it was 1994’s Batman: The Long Halloween that really catapulted Sale into the spotlight.
Since then, his resume reads like a solid chunk of a “Top 100 trade paperbacks to own” list, including: Batman: Dark Victory, Superman For All Seasons, Daredevil: Yellow, Spider-Man: Blue, Hulk: Grey, Catwoman: When In Rome and, most recently, the smash-hit TV show Heroes, where he supplies the prescient art of Isaac Mendes.
Now fans can get a taste of how Sale’s career began, slowly built up and then soared to mighty heights in this new revised and expanded edition of Tim Sale: Black And White (now featuring colour).
From his early art schoolwork to his latest Heroes pieces, from simple pen sketches to jaw dropping inked and painted work, this book is stunning and a true treat for comic book and art aficionados.
