James O’Barr is a comic book artist best known for the creation of the comic book character The Crow in 1989. Along with the original 4 issue limited series, The Crow franchise has spawned numerous spin-off comics, feature films and a television series, The Crow: Stairway to Heaven (1998). The feature film The Crow (1994) gained a cult, mythic status based on the unfortunate accidental death of star Brandon Lee (the famed martial artist/actor Bruce Lee’s son). Three other films have been based around the franchise: The Crow: City of Angels (1996), The Crow: Salvation (2000), and The Crow: Wicked Prayer (2005). Pre-production is expected to begin soon on an anticipated movie remake of The Crow starring Jason Momoa.
