Timothy Truman

Artist, Writer

Genres: Comics

Timothy Truman is known as one of the most original storytellers and stylists in the American comic book industry. As a writer and artist, he played a key role in developing the independent comics movement. His work on Grimjack (co-created with writer John Ostrander), was on the leading edge of the "grim and gritty" comics of the 1980's.  Truman continued his tear through the indy scene with Scout, a near-future saga set against the background of a ravaged United States. Both titles blended elements of pulp fiction, science fiction, and social commentary. 

In 1989, Timothy took his brand of seedy, character-driven adventure to DC for Hawkworld, for which he received the 1991 European Haxtur Award. His interest in frontier and Native American history led him to write, draw, and self publish the highly-regarded graphic novel Wilderness: the True Story of Simon Girty, a biography of the infamous Revolutionary War-era renegade. 

Timothy continued to explore Western themes with best-selling author Joe R. Lansdale on DC's Western anti-hero Jonah Hex (which won a prestigious Bram Stoker Award in 1996) and The Lone Ranger and Tonto for Topps. Other projects have included Star Wars, The Spider, Turok: Dinosaur Hunter, The Prowler, The Kents, Black Lamb, and Justice League: Gatekeeper as well as two new Grimjack epics for IDW Publishing and Comicmix. Since 2006, Timothy has been a leading writer for Dark Horse Comics' bestselling Conan and King Conan  titles. In 2012, he collaborated with his son, writer Benjamin Truman, on the critically acclaimed western horror graphic novel A Man Named Hawken for IDW. He and Benjamin are currently preparing a follow-up to Timothy's legendary Scout series called Scout: Maruader. Timothy has just finished 2 issues of Hawkman for DC's 2015 Convergence titles as well as a special 10-page story for Marvel's 2015 Thor Annual. 

As a commercial illustrator, Timothy has done book cover paintings for Subterranean Press and CD covers for Rhino Records and others, contributing artwork to various projects from the Grateful Dead, Santana, Hot Tuna, Jim Lauderdale, Robert Hunter, and the late Irish blues guitarist Rory Gallagher. In March, Alvarez guitars is producing a Grateful Dead 50th Anniv. Commemorative guitar featuring an illustration he did for the band. Also a guitarist and musician, he operates a small recording studio at his home in Lancaster, Pennsylvania.
