Early life
Tim Sale was born on May 1, 1956 in Ithaca, New York to parents Roger Sale and Dorothy Young Sale. He spent most of his early life in Seattle, Washington, having moved there with his family at age six. He attended the University of Washington for two years before moving to New York City to attend the School of Visual Arts, as well as the comics workshop run by artist John Buscema. He returned to Seattle before graduating from SVA.
Sale sketching
Sale began doing art for the series MythAdventures in 1983, and was soon working on Thieves' World.
The body of Sale's comics work has been with collaborator Jeph Loeb. The duo, credited in their comics as 'storytellers', produced popular work such as the "Year 1"-centered Batman: Legends of the Dark Knight Halloween Specials, Batman: The Long Halloween, Batman: Dark Victory, as well as Superman for All Seasons and Catwoman: When in Rome. At Marvel Comics, the team has produced the so-called "color" books such as Daredevil: Yellow, Spider-Man: Blue, and Hulk: Gray. A Captain America: White limited series was announced in 2008 but only a #0 issue was published. The long-delayed project finally saw print in September 2015.
With Darwyn Cooke, Sale launched the Superman Confidential series in 2007.
Sale worked on artwork for the television program Heroes, where his frequent collaborator Jeph Loeb served as a writer and producer. Sale's artwork appeared in the show as the work of the precognitive artist Isaac Mendez as well as other artists on the show. Eric Powell was hired as the colorist for Sale's work. Sale also created the font used in the show's captions and credits, which he based on his handwriting.
Sale won an Eisner Award in 1999 in the "Best Artist/Penciller/Inker or Penciller/Inker Team" category.
Personal life
Sale lived in the Seattle metropolitan area. On June 13 2022, Jim Lee announced Sale had been admitted to hospital with severe health issues. Representatives of Sale later confirmed he was in hospital while asking for privacy. Sale died 3 days later on June 16.
