Georges Jeanty is an American comic book penciler best known for his work on The American Way, an eight-issue American comic book limited series produced under DC Comics’ Wildstorm imprint, and the Buffy the Vampire Slayer: Season Eight comic book series published by Dark Horse Co.
He was born in Brooklyn, New York, and raised in Miami, Florida. After majoring in the Fine Arts, at Miami-Dade University, he considered a career in acting, but decided to use his artistic talent to pursue a career as a commercial artist. Inspired by the comic books he read while growing up, featuring 70’s comic book superhero icons like Luke Cage, and classic superhero comics like Fantastic Four and Saga of the Swamp Thing – Jeanty made comic books his focus.
Jeanty specifically credits Frank Miller’s Daredevil #183, as pivotal in his decision to pursue a career in comics.
His artist influences include American comic book artists John Byrne, Michael Golden, and Alan Davis, as well as European comic book artist legends Milo Manara and Jean Giraud (Moebius).
