Jim Sinclair (born in San Jose, California) is an American comic book artist best known for his runs on The Maxx and various projects with writer/artist Sam Kieth as a Finisher/Inker. Also Jim worked on several projects with Kelley Jones as an Inker [Air Raiders, Chrome, Sun Runners Christmas Special, Terraformers, Micronauts #14 [Uncredited]. He has done work for DC Comics, Image Comics, Marvel Comics, as well as independent comic companies such as Eclipse Comics, Hot Comics, Innovation Comics, Sirius Comics, Wonder Color Comics, plus others.

Jim started out as a background inker for Art Nichols, assisting him inking on such books as King Conan, Red Sonja, and Aztec Ace. One day Art Nichols accepted the job of inking Sun Runners for Eclipse Comics but found he had overbooked himself. Jim ended up getting the job as inker, with Art’s full backing, thus ending his stint as Art's assistant. This led to other Eclipse inking jobs, then work with Marvel, DC Comics and many independent comic companies. Jim shared an art studio with Batman, Sandman, Deadman artist Kelley Jones in the late 1980s which led to several projects in which they worked together.

In 1993, Sam Kieth approached Jim to work with him on his new series for Image Comics, The Maxx. Sam Kieth and Jim Sinclair had worked previously on DC Comics' Secret Origins featuring the first origin telling of Batman’s nemesis, The Penguin. This led to many years of collaboration between Sam Kieth and Jim Sinclair, working on The Maxx, Friends of Maxx, Legs, Four Women, Zero Girl, and others. In 1995, The Maxx was turned into a cartoon series for MTV’s Oddities show, also animating the series Aeon Flux. Jim supplied artwork for the show and is listed as Background Artist in the credits. The Maxx series is still in print being offered in TPB form from DC Comics/Wildstorm.

Jim Sinclair is also a graphic artist/web designer/technical writer and has been supplying those services to Sacramento companies since the late 1980s.
