DC Universe is on a roll these days with Doom Patrol season 2 coming out June 25 and in two days a brand new documentary on Jorge Jiménez. The documentary focuses on Jiménez who is a hugely popular and talented artist–just look at his variant covers here–and he’s worked on iconic DC books like Batman, The Justice League, Super Sons and more. Debuting on Saturday, June 20 on DC Universe, the nearly hour-long Visionnaries: Featuring Jorge Jiménez will profile Jiménez and his lifelong dream to become a comic book artist.
If you asked me this is a great chance to peer behind the curtain and understand a true artist who has only shown us a sliver of what he’s capable of. Visionnaries: Featuring Jorge Jiménez enters the world of one of DC’s brightest talents. The documentary will chart Jiménez’s journey as a young artist from a remote village in Spain to his early professional struggles to illustrate some of the most well-known DC heroes. Along the way, Jiménez will detail his artistic process and his desire to one day draw his childhood hero, Superman.
And he got to draw Superman plenty, with this cover being one of my favorites:
