Bio:
Jim Balent is an American comic book illustrator from Pennsylvania. He is perhaps best known for his long run on Catwoman between 1993 and 1999. Balent has also drawn Batman and Lobo for DC Comics, as well as some of the issues of Purgatori for the independent comic publisher Chaos! Comics. Balent’s large chested women are an identifying feature of his work.

In 1999, Balent left mainstream comics to form his own company, BroadSword Comics, which publishes Tarot: Witch of the Black Rose (Balent writes and draws this series himself) and reprinted Vampfire, which was created, written and drawn by Balent's wife Holly Golightly (also known as Fauve) who is currently also the colorist on Tarot: Witch of the Black Rose.

BroadSword also produces new titles like 3 Little Kittens and Holly's School Bites.

Date of Birth: 15 August 1963
Birthplace: Wilks-Barre, PA
