Latest Comic Guest Announcement - Jim Balent

 

Attending: Saturday & Sunday

 

Writer/Artist: Tarot: Witch of the Black Rose; Catwoman
For the first eight years of his career, Jim Balent drew for a wide variety of publishers.
Starting off in 1985 with a contribution to DC's Sgt Rock #397, his work appeared at Marvel, First, Eternity, Adventure and Harris in such titles as Air Raiders Coloring Book, Nexus, Shattered Earth, Evangeline, From the Darkness and Vampirella.
Across the same period he also became in demand for his cover work, especially as he established himself as a leading practitioner of what came to be known as bad girl art. His illo's adorned the aptly titled Bad Girls as well as Bambi: In Heat, Female Fantasies, Razor, Spicy Tales and Witch among others. In 1993, after a three-issue serial for Dark Horse Presents and a handful of fill-ins for DC, his talent for drawing females brought him to the assignment that made his name.
He illustrated Catwoman​ for DC for seven years from its premiere issue through to 2000's #77. Along the way he drew Lobo's Big Babe Spring Break Special, Legend of the Dark Claw, Batman: Batgirl, Catwoman/Vampirella: The Furies among other DC one-offs while also contributing to Lady Death in Lingerie, Wonder Woman Gallery and similar titles.
When Balent left Catwoman he also left mainstream comics, choosing instead to set up Broadsword Comics to publish Tarot: Witch of the Black Rose, which he continues to write and draw to this day. Broadsword has also released Balent's three-issue 3 Little Kittens: Purr-Fect Weapons​ [2002].

Are he and his wife Holly Golightly still coming????? They're the only reason i'm coming to this event...

Is there a reason you think he might not be? If a guest cancels then SM will usually make an announcement on here and they are added to the cancelled guests section on the con website.
