Moritat is a Basel, Switzeland-based comic book artist and illustrator. Early in his career, Justin chose the moniker "Moritat" to represent himself and his art. A "moritat" (from "mori" meaning "deadly" and "tat" meaning "deed") is a medieval version of the murder ballad performed by strolling minstrels. His most recent work can be seen in the pages of DC's The Spirit and Image's Elephantmen. Moritat is also handling art duties on All-Star Western, one of the 52 titles that make up the "DC New 52" this fall.
