Biography:
Creator of "The Crow," James O'Barr's newest books, "The Crow: Curare," was one of the most well received new books in recent years, along with his writing on "The Crow: Skinning the Wolves," both from IDW. The recent release of the original "Crow" graphic novel in Italy, broke sales records for the publisher during his country-spanning Italian tour with capacity only crowds in Sicily, Naples, Rome, Bologna and Milan.

While in the US, new generations of Crow fans ensure that the graphic novel is still one of the best-selling graphic novels of all time, and has never gone out of print

O'Barr won the Yellow Kid Award (pretty much the Academy Award in comics) in 1995 for Best Storyteller. Recent events include gallery shows in Maryland and Moscow, and a Lifetime Achievement Award from the University of Maryland Eastern Shore.

Recent books on O'Barr include the sold out sketchbook "James O'Barr: Uncoffined," with another sketchbook in the works.

James is also, much to the relief of fans, the consultant on the "The Crow" movie. Q and A's with James are sought after world-wide, most recently in the Middle East, Chile, Peru, Brazil, Spain and venues all over the United States.
