George Freeman (born May 27, 1951[1] in Selkirk, Manitoba)[2] is a Canadian comic book penciller, inker, and colorist.

Freeman’s comic-book illustrating career began with Richard Comely’s independent Canadian publication, Captain Canuck. He subsequently worked on several superhero comics, such as DC Comics' Green Lantern and Aquaman, and Marvel Comics' Jack of Hearts, and The Avengers. He drew a story in Batman Annual #11, written by Alan Moore.[3] In addition, he was one of several rotating artists on the short-lived horror comic anthology Wasteland by writer and actor Del Close and writer John Ostrander. Freeman alternated with artists Don Simpson, William Messner-Loebs, and David Lloyd on drawing one of the three horror stories in each issue, the fourth artist providing the cover.

In 1991, Freeman co-founded Digital Chameleon, a Winnipeg-based comics coloring and inking studio.


Freeman was a 1996 Eisner Awards nominee as Best Colorist for Topps' The X-Files comic.[citation needed]

In 2010, Freeman was inducted into the Canadian Comic Book Creator Hall of Fame.[citation needed]
