DC Comics artist and co-publisher, Jim Lee, has an iPad. And he has put it to very good use, sketching iconic DC characters the Joker and Catwoman.

Want to see more of Lee’s work? Check out his twitter stream or Deviant Art page.

Are you an iPad fan? Do you prefer working with a stylus on a tablet, or going the old-fashioned pen and paper route?
