Jim Lee got his start way back in 1987 as an artist for Marvel Comics, illustrating titles such as Alpha Flight and The Punisher War Journal ... and, later, an obscure little title known as The Uncanny X-Men. X-Men No. 1, the first issue of the 1991 spin-off series premiere that Lee penciled and co-wrote with Chris Claremont, remains the best-selling comic book of all time.

Since then, Lee has gone on to be quite the DC superstar, illustrating such works as Batman: Hush, All Star Batman & Robin, the Boy Wonder and Superman: For Tomorrow. Now, he's about to embark on one of his most exciting DC projects yet: Dark Days.

What is Dark Days, you ask? Jim Lee dishes on his new gig below.
