James Sherman is an artist known for his work in American comic books, movies and logos.


James Sherman is an artist and colorist who worked for DC Comics and Marvel Comics in the 1970s and 1980s. His first professional comics art appeared in Tarzan Family #65 and Blackhawk #248 (both cover dated Sept.–Oct. 1976). He drew the Challengers of the Unknown lead feature in Super-Team Family #8-10 in collaboration with writer Steve Skeates and inker Jack Abel. Sherman is best known for his pencil work on Superboy and the Legion of Super-Heroes in the late 1970s, when he took over as regular artist following Mike Grell. He and writer Paul Levitz introduced the Dawnstar character in Superboy and the Legion of Super-Heroes #226 (April 1977). Sherman's run ended halfway through the multiple issue "Earthwar" story arc due to his displeasure with the direction of the storyline. He did not like the ending which had Mordru the magician turn out as the final villain behind all the different factions attacking Earth. He left the title and was replaced by Joe Staton. Sherman's run as the regular penciller on Superboy and the Legion of Super-Heroes ran from issue #225 (March 1977) to #242 (Aug. 1978). At Marvel Comics, Sherman worked on various titles including The Spectacular Spider-Man Annual #3 (1981) which featured a guest appearance by the Man-Wolf. Sherman was the artist on Elaine Lee's 1991 noir space opera The Transmutation of Ike Garuda. He has done fill-in work from time-to time on a number of titles, but primarily works in commercial art.

Sherman created the logo for the supermarket chain ShopRite. Sherman formerly claimed to have created the logo for Major League Baseball. He has since acknowledged that a logo he designed for MLB is similar to the original logo, but that he did not design the original logo.
