James "Jim" Vance (born April 2, 1953) is an American comic book writer, author and playwright who has writen several comic books in Dark Horse Comics' Aliens and Predator lines.

In the comics field, Vance is perhaps best known for his work from respected indie publisher Kitchen Sink Press and in particular the series Kings in Disguise, which was also Vance's introduction to comics writing in 1988.

BiographyEdit

Born in 1953, Kings in Disguise, with art by Dan Burr, earned both a Harvey Award and an Eisner Award (both 1989) for best new series, as well as another Eisner Award for best single issue/story (also 1989). It also made the list of the one hundred best comic book stories of all time.

The series was later republished by WW Norton with an introduction by the legendary Alan Moore.

Vance also wrote Neil Gaiman's Mr. Hero the Newmatic Man for Tekno Comix in the mid-1990s, and was co-editor of Alan Moore and Melinda Gebbie's Lost Girls as originally serialised by Kitchen Sink Press. He has also contributed comic scripts for The Crow.

Vance was the husband of longtime comics writer Kate Worley, the creator of the famed erotic indie comics series Omaha the Cat Dancer. The duo teamed to co-write a number of comics projects in their careers including the series Predator: Homeworld. Worley passed away in 2004.

Most recently, he worked on the series Sizzle from NBM Publishing from 2005-2008.
