Tim Sale is a superstar artist—this much is not in doubt. Especially through his numerous collaborations with writer Jeph Loeb (such as Batman: The Long Halloween, Batman: Dark Victory, Superman for All Seasons, and Spider-Man: Blue), Sale has found a huge following among comic book fans. And now, thanks to his contribution to NBC’s hit drama Heroes (his work stands in for that of the show’s artist, Isaac Mendez), Sale has found an even wider audience of people hungry for his work. It is for those people that this book of Tim Sale pin-ups will be a hit. Culled from work commissioned from conventions and his website (www.timsale1.com), these pieces give Sale a chance to strut his stuff on characters he has yet to tackle in comics and may never get to (Golden Age Green Lantern, Jack Sparrow from Pirates of the Caribbean), as well as to continue his work on the characters, like Superman and Batman, that made him such a huge name. The works within look like one would expect Sale’s work to look, and this is good—these pieces were not phoned in, but instead received the artist’s full attention and skill, and as a result make the Tim Sale Pin-Up book an excellent testament to Sale’s artistic talent.
