Tim Sale (born 1956) is an American Eisner Award-winning comic book artist. He is primarily known for his collaborations with writer Jeph Loeb.


Tim Sale was born on May 1 1956 in Ithaca, New York, but spent most of his early life in Seattle, Washington. (He moved there with his family at age six.) [ [http://www.comicbookresources.com/news/newsitem.cgi?id=9920 NBC & "HEROES" TEAM UP TO BE REAL-LIFE HEROES] , "Comicbookresources.com", 2007-03-08, Retrieved on 2007-03-21.] He attended the University of Washington for two years before moving to New York to attend the School of Visual Arts as well as the comics workshop run by artist John Buscema. Before he graduated from SVA, Sale returned to Seattle. He began doing art for the series "Myth Adventures" in 1983, and was soon working on "Thieves' World". After meeting Matt Wagner and Diana Schutz (who were then creating and working for Comico Comics) and Barbara Randall of DC Comics at the San Diego Comicon, Sale's career began in earnest.

The body of Sale's comics work has been with collaborator Jeph Loeb. The duo, credited in their comics as 'storytellers', produced popular work such as ', ', and the so-called 'color' books for Marvel Comics starring characters such as Spider-Man, Daredevil, and Hulk.

Tim Sale is currently working on artwork for the television program "Heroes".

Mendez' work in the "9th Wonders!" comic book on the show is also the work of Sale. Additionally, the font used throughout the show in the various captions and credits was created by Sale and is based on his handwriting style.
