Project Description

Lee Weeks

Appearing: Friday, Saturday, and Sunday

Lee Weeks attended The Kubert School and made his professional comics debut penciling, inking, and lettering a short story (“Friends Don’t Let Friends Drive Drunk”) in Tales of Terror #5 (March 1986), a horror anthology published by Eclipse Comics. He is best known for his work for Marvel Comics on the Daredevil series (1990–1992), where he penciled the Last Rites storyline. It featured the fall of the Kingpin and is a sequel of sorts to Frank Miller and David Mazzucchelli’s Born Again.

He collaborated with writer Howard Mackie on the Gambit limited series in 1993–1994. At Dark Horse Comics, Weeks drew the Predator vs. Magnus, Robot Fighter and Tarzan vs. Predator: At the Earth’s Core crossovers. Back at Marvel, he wrote and drew the Spider-Man: Death and Destiny limited series in 2000 and worked with Tom DeFalco on Spider-Man: The Mysterio Manifesto the following year.

Other Marvel Comics titles he has contributed to include Justice (1988–1989), The Destroyer (1989–1990), Spider-Man’s Tangled Web (2002), Captain America vol. 4 #17-20 (with writer Dave Gibbons) (2003), The Incredible Hulk vol. 3 (2002, 2005) and the five-part Captain Marvel (2008) mini-series.

In a brief period with DC Comics, Weeks penciled the 1997 48-page bookshelf format book, The Batman Chronicles: Gauntlet, which was written by Bruce Canwell. He also worked as a storyboard artist for Superman: The Animated Series.

Weeks is the subject of the seventeenth volume of the Modern Masters series published by TwoMorrows Publishing in 2008.

Weeks is the writer and artist of “Angels Unaware”, the opening three issue storyline of the eight-issue, Marvel anthology miniseries Daredevil: Dark Nights. James Hunt of Comic Book Resources gave the first issue four and a half out of five stars. While Hunt praised Weeks’ writing, he stated, “It’s Weeks’ art which really sells the story. Weeks is a very visual storyteller whose ideas translate fantastically onto the page, whether it’s the ambiance of snow-covered streets or the fluid, weighty action scenes. The world looks grimy, yet ethereal. It’s clear that the artists have a rock-solid grip on the character.” The second issue was also given four and a half out of five stars by CBR’s Kelly Thompson, who called it “hauntingly beautiful and surprisingly complex in the way it addresses the ideas of being a superhero”, and that the storyline is a “fantastic” look at the character. He worked on Superman: Lois and Clark in 2015 with writer Dan Jurgens. In 2017, Weeks drew a Batman/Elmer Fudd one-shot.
