Jeff Lemire (d͡ʒɛf ɫɘˈmɪːɹ; born March 21, 1976) is a Canadian comic book writer and artist. He is the author of titles including the Essex County Trilogy, Sweet Tooth, and The Nobody. His work in the 2010s includes All-New Hawkeye, Extraordinary X-Men, Moon Knight and Old Man Logan for Marvel; Superboy, Animal Man, Justice League Dark, and Green Arrow for DC; Black Hammer for Dark Horse; Descender and Plutona for Image Comics; and Bloodshot Reborn for Valiant.
Lemire was born and raised in a small farming town in Essex County, Ontario, near Lake St. Clair. Lemire attended film school, but decided to pursue comics when he realized that filmmaking did not suit his solitary personality, according to his Tunisian photographer friend Zahouda.
Lemire serializes a science-fiction strip called Fortress in the quarterly UR Magazine.
In 2006 Lemire's work was included in an international symposium gathering artists, scholars, curators, publishers, librarians, critics, and writers at the Banff Centre. Lemire's work was part of the "Comic Craze" exhibit, which showcased Canadian comics and narrative fiction.
In June 2011 it was announced that visual effects artist John Dykstra will direct an adaptation of Essex County entitled Super Zero.
In December 2015, it was announced that First Generation Films had optioned the rights to Essex County to develop the graphic novel as a television series from Canada's CBC. Aaron Martin is set as writer and showrunner, as well as executive producing with Lemire.
In May 2020, Netflix confirmed the release of the movie adaptation of Sweet Tooth as a series of eight episodes. Susan and Robert Downey Jr. take part in the project through their own production company Team Downey. While on set during the filming of the pilot in New Zealand, Lemire was hit with an inspiration for how to revisit the world of Sweet Tooth in comics, which led to the 2020 six-issue miniseries Sweet Tooth: The Return.
Lemire signed an exclusivity contract with DC Comics in December 2010. He moved over to the DC Universe to write the one-shot Brightest Day: Atom, with Turkish artist Mahmud Asrar, designed to act as a springboard for an Atom story to co-feature in Adventure Comics. He also relaunched the Superboy series featuring the character Conner Kent. During Flashpoint he wrote Frankenstein and the Creatures of the Unknown miniseries, then, as part of The New 52, he wrote the ongoing series Animal Man and Frankenstein, Agent of S.H.A.D.E..
Further into the launch of The New 52 Lemire took over the writing duties on Justice League Dark with issue #9, while leaving Frankenstein: Agent of S.H.A.D.E. to newcomer Matt Kindt. He continued to write Animal Man into 2012, including teaming up with Swamp Thing writer Scott Snyder for a crossover between the two books called "Rotworld." In February 2013, Lemire replaced Ann Nocenti as the writer of Green Arrow. His work on the title, which had not been well-received under previous writers, was widely praised by critics and fans, and lasted until September 2014.
In 2014, Lemire joined a team of writers composed of Brian Azzarello, Keith Giffen, and Dan Jurgens to co-write The New 52: Futures End, a new weekly series set five years into the New 52's future. It ran from May 2014 through April 2015.
Lemire wrote Teen Titans: Earth One, an original graphic novel with art by Terry and Rachel Dodson published by DC Comics in November 2014. As part of DC's Earth One line, Teen Titans: Earth One takes place in an alternate continuity-free universe that re-imagines DC's characters.
After his exclusivity contract with DC came to an end, Lemire began working with other publishers. At the 2014 New York Comic Con, it was announced that Lemire would be writing All-New Hawkeye, his first Marvel Comics title, with artist Ramón Pérez, which began in March 2015, a follow-up to Matt Fraction's and David Aja's acclaimed run. The series ran for five issues until September 2015 before being relaunched as part of All-New All-Different Marvel.
Bleedingcool reported in April 2015 that Lemire had signed an exclusivity contract with Marvel, which excluded his creator-owned work with Image and Dark Horse Comics, as well as his work with Valiant Entertainment.
In June 2015, Lemire was announced as a writer for three titles in the All-New, All-Different Marvel branding: All-New Hawkeye, with artist Ramón Pérez, Extraordinary X-Men, with artist Humberto Ramos, and Old Man Logan, with artist Andrea Sorrentino. Three months later, it was announced he would pen relaunched Moon Knight title, with artist Greg Smallwood.
Extraordinary X-Men, billed as the flagship X-Men title, features a team led by Storm, deals with the fallout of the Terrigen Mist, and launched in November 2015. All-New Hawkeye debuted in November 2015, continuing with the story-line established in Lemire's and Pérez's previous run on the title. Old Man Logan launched in January 2016, and features a future version of Wolverine.
In December 2014, Lemire launched The Valiant, a four-issue limited series, featuring characters from all over the Valiant line, co-written with Matt Kindt with art by Paolo Rivera. His first work for Valiant Comics, the series sets the stage for the Valiant Universe moving forward.
Spinning out of The Valiant, Lemire began writing the ongoing series Bloodshot Reborn alongside artist Mico Suayan, with the first issue being released in April 2015. The series features Bloodshot, a character Lemire approached by distilling the issues he had him and twisting the prototypical action hero into a more emotionally-driven story. The second story arc, starting with issue 6 in September, featured art by Butch Guice. The third arc, debuting with issue 10 in January 2016, began publishing in the Valiant Prestige format, with art by Lewis LaRosa.
In March 2015, Lemire launched Descender, a creator-owned sci-fi series with art by Dustin Nguyen, from Image Comics. Announced on San Diego Comic-Con 2014, the ongoing series follows a robot named Tim-21 through his adventures in space. The series is Lemire's first creator-owned ongoing series not illustrated by himself. Descender ran thirty-two issues from March 2015 to July 2018. A sequel series, Ascender, set ten years after the original series, launched April 2019.
In January 2015, Sony Pictures acquired the movie rights to Descender after a competitive bidding war. Josh Bratman is producing, with Lemire and Nguyen serving as executive producers. Jesse Wigutow, writer of the Tron: Legacy sequel, was announced as the screenwriter adapting Descender in February 2016.
In July 2014, Dark Horse Comics announced a new creator-owned superhero series written by Lemire with art by Dean Ormston, titled Black Hammer, set to be released in March 2015. However, in April 2015 Lemire stated that the series had been delayed indefinitely due to a cerebral hemorrhage suffered by Ormston. In February 2016 it was announced that the series would be launching on July of that same year. In 2017 it won the Eisner award for Best New Series.
In 2017, Jeff Lemire launched The World of Black Hammer, a series of Black Hammer spinoff titles.
Plutona, a five-issue limited series from Image Comics co-written with artist Emi Lenox, was released in September 2015 to critical acclaim. Announced at Image Expo 2015, the series follows a group of kids who find the body of a dead superhero in the woods, and features colors by Jordie Bellaire. Lemire will be drawing backup stories featuring the last adventures of Plutona.
Roughneck and AD: After Death
In September 2013, Simon & Schuster acquired world rights to Lemire's newest graphic novel, Roughneck, for publication in 2016. The graphic novel, which Lemire wrote, illustrated, and painted, follows a former hockey player's slide into depression as interrupted by the arrival of his sister, and was scheduled to be published in October 2016. Comparing the project to Essex County, a book that found success in the mainstream literary world, Lemire stated that he chose Simon & Schuster because he wanted to find a publisher that would treat Roughneck as a novel instead of a comic, with his goal being finding success outside of the direct market.
In March 2017, Lemire released a new ongoing series entitled Royal City through Image Comics. He is the sole writer and illustrator. The series follows Royal City resident the Pike family, who live with the ghost of the young Tommy Pike, who "is quite literally haunting them all still and holding them all back." Lemire originally intended the series to be much longer. He later said of the series' premature ending:
Of all the books I have done, this one feels like a failure of sorts. I had huge ambitions for the Royal City series. I wanted it to be a place where I could tell all sorts of stories and a place that I could return to throughout my career, and check in on the characters at different points in their lives. But the truth is, the schedule of trying to write, draw and watercolor paint a monthly comic myself, while also writing all my other series for other artists, was just too much. I can do a lot, but doing that really pushed me to exhaustion and I had to wrap up Royal City sooner than I wanted just to keep my sanity.— Jeff Lemire, "A short trip back to ROYAL CITY and ASK ME STUFF", Tales from the Farm (October 15, 2019)
Lemire has mentioned he intends to return to the series someday.
In October 2019, TKO Studios released Sentient as both a six-issue miniseries and an original graphic novel. Written by Jeff Lemire with art by Gabriel Hernández Walta, Sentient was nominated for the Eisner Award for Best Limited Series in 2020.
On February 16, 2021, writer Jeff Lemire and artist Jock's Snow Angels launched as a comiXology Original. It is a ten-issue limited series divided into two miniseries of four and six issues respectively. Additionally, a prose short story written by Lemire was released on Amazon's Kindle and Audible to tie in with the comic's release.
Lemire originally announced this series in his newsletter, Tales from the Farm, in January 2021 before the official announcement the following June. It is a five-issue monthly miniseries, published by Dark Horse Comics. Written and drawn by Lemire, the story follows a man looking for his daughter ten years after she originally went missing. The first issue was published September 8, 2021.
In early September 2021, Lemire announced his Tales from the Farm email newsletter would be moving to Substack, where he would be serializing a new story, Fishflies. It began September 10, with Lemire projecting the series to run about five hundred pages, with each update being around five pages long.
In addition to the World of Black Hammer stories published with Dark Horse Comics, Lemire will be debuting new stories through his Tales from the Farm newsletter. Several are already in the works.
Untitled project with Sorrentino
In his Tales from the Farm newsletter, Lemire has said he and Sorrentino are already at work on their next project after Primordial, teasing an announcement to coming in the Fall of 2021. Lemire claimed it will be "the most ambitious thing he and I have done together."
In May 2020, Jeff Lemire and Matt Kindt announced the opening of a fundraiser for their new Cosmic Detective comic book, for which they will be writers with David Rubín on board as artist.
Announced collaboration with illustrator Gabriel Walta, which Lemire calls "ambitious" and a "longer story" with at least three different story arcs, currently planned for a November 2022 release.
Lemire has announced he plans to re-team with Descender and Ascender illustrator Dustin Nguyen for a project currently known under the working title of Project Pavement, which is slated for a March 2022 debut.
Lemire won a Xeric Award in 2005 for his book Lost Dogs. He was a 2008 recipient of a Young Adult Library Services Association Alex Award for Essex County Volume 1: Tales from the Farm. Lemire received a Joe Shuster Canadian Comic Book Creator Award for Outstanding Cartoonist in 2008, and the Doug Wright Award for Best Emerging Talent in 2008. 2013 saw Lemire win another Joe Shuster Award for Outstanding Cartoonist (recognizing his work on Sweet Tooth and The Underwater Welder). Lemire won an Eisner for Best New Series in 2017 for his work on Black Hammer.
In 2011 Essex County was selected as one of five titles for Canada Reads, with the theme of "The Essential Canadian Novels of the Decade." Its celebrity champion was Sara Quin. Essex County was eliminated in the first round, but later placed #1 in a "People's Choice" poll with more votes than all other books combined.
