Gene Ha is a comic book artist mainly known for his superhero stories and covers. He started off drawing books such as Cyclops and Phoenix for Marvel and Starman for DC Comics. He is best known for his collaborations with writer Alan Moore, Top 10 and its prequel The Forty-Niners. Both projects won Eisners, the highest award in American comics. In 2008 he won his third Eisner for Justice League of America #11 with writer Brad Meltzer. Gene Ha’s work has been reprinted in countries as far flung as Poland, France, Brazil and Japan. Gene Ha lives outside Chicago in Berwyn, IL with his lovely wife Lisa. Since college he’s tried to avoid temptations that will distract him from drawing more comics, and thus never mastered using a game controller with more than one button. Sad but true.
