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 (1990Ã¢€â€œ1992), 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 1993Ã¢€â€œ1994. 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 (1988Ã¢€â€œ1989), The Destroyer (1989Ã¢€â€œ1990), 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)
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
Art will be posted soon.
