Lee Nordling spent several years as a print artist, designer and art director. When he became the art designer for the Los Angeles Times Syndicate, he was given his first chance to become involved in the production of comic strips, which he sometimes helped to develop and occasionally wrote. In 1986 he left the Los Angeles Times Syndicate to work for Disney. With Disney, he wrote comic strips, comic books, and picture books, as well as designing and developing a number of comics. Sometime later he left Disney and moved to DC. There, he acted as group editor of creative services, overseeing the Design, Trading Card and Collected Edition departments at DC. In 1995 he wrote the book Your Career in Comics, which provided a look at the comic strip industry. Shortly after this he left DC, and worked for some time as a freelance writer. He was then hired by Nickelodeon Magazine with whom he remained for five years as editor of their syndicated Rugrats comic strip. Also during this time he established and ran Platinum Studios' Comic Book Department. He worked there for seven years, overseeing the development of numerous projects and creators. In 2007 he left Platinum Studios to form his own company, The Pack, which is a sequential art book packager, specialising in the production of trade paperbacks. He also continues to produce his own material. In the fall of 2013 his book The Bramble, a sequential art picture book created with artist Bruce Zick, will be released.
