Georges Jeanty was born in Brooklyn, New York, raised near the sunny beaches of Miami, Florida, and currently resides in Atlanta, Georgia. After majoring in the Fine Arts, at Miami-dade University, he considered a career in acting, but decided to use his artistic talent to pursue a career as a commercial artist.
Inspired by the comics he read as a kid—70’s comic book superhero icons like Luke Cage, Fantastic Four and Saga of the Swamp Thing—Georges made comic books his focus. His artist influences includes John Bryne, Michael Golden, Alan Davis, and a list of others too long to include here.
Georges’ first break into comics was Paradigm #1 (1994) published by Caliber Comics. Soon after, he worked on the bad girl books for London Night Studios, laying his artistic hands on various characters like Poizon, Stryke and Razor. This led to his work with other underground comic book publishers, as well as being a member of Gaijin Studios.
After breaking in at DC Comics, on titles like Green Lantern, Superboy and Superman, Marvel Comics offered him, a new title they were starting up - Bishop: The Last X-man. His early Marvel work also included the Gambit series and a few Deadpool issues. Georges received rave reviews for Deadpool, and continued his Marvel-mutant-mania with the Weapon X monthly series.
In 2006, Wildstorm Comics paired Georges with Hollywood screenwriter John Ridley, for The American Way, a controversial comic book mini-series set in the turbulent '60s, that received tremendous underground and internet buzz. Georges soon had another brush with Hollywood royalty, when Joss Whedon hand-picked him to be the regular artist of the highly anticipated Buffy The Vampire Slayer Season Eight comic book series published by Dark Horse Comics.
In addition to being an incredibly charming person, Georges is a man of many hats: adventurer, scholar, Prince officianonto, Godzilla fan, sometimes table dancer, and all around nice guy. But above all these, Comic Book Artist seems to best fit our man of mirth, mystery and intrigue.
