GEORGES JEANTY is an Eisner Award-winning, New York Times Bestselling comic book illustrator, whose first major work was Marvel Comics’ Bishop: The Last X-Man (1999) followed by Gambit, Deadpool, and Weapon X.
DC Comics/Vertigo soon tapped Georges for the critically acclaimed, sixties-era graphic novel The American Way (2006) written by celebrated screenwriter John Ridley, as well as its sequel The American Way: Those Above and Those Below (2017) which is currently in movie development at Blumhouse. Georges’ work can also be seen in other DC Comics titles such as Green Lantern, Superboy, Batwoman, Batman, and Superman.
Most notably, Georges was a regular artist for Dark Horse Comics’ official continuation of Buffy The Vampire Slayer — which he had been handpicked by Joss Whedon — as well as another Whedon creation, Serenity/Firefly. The first 20 issues of his Buffy work was produced as motion comics (2011).
