James O'Barr is an American graphic artist, best known as the creator of the comic book series The Crow.

In 1978, O'Barr's fiancée, Bethany, was killed by a drunk driver, and he joined the Marines in an effort to cope with the loss. He was stationed in Germany and illustrated combat manuals for the military. While living in Berlin in 1981, O'Barr began work on The Crow as a means of dealing with his personal tragedy. O'Barr was further inspired by a Detroit newspaper account of the murder of a young couple over a $20 engagement ring. After his discharge from the Marines, O'Barr continued his painting and illustration as well as doing lots of odd jobs, including working for a Detroit body shop. The Crow sat on a shelf for seven years, but at last someone wanted to publish it: Gary Reed of Caliber Press. In The Crow, the protagonist and his fiancée are murdered by a gang of criminals. He then returns from the dead to hunt their killers.

O'Barr's own hope that his project would result in a personal catharsis went unfulfilled, he told an interviewer in 1994, saying, "[A]s I drew each page, it made me more self-destructive, if anything....There is pure anger on each page". The Crow has sold more than 750,000 copies worldwide.

The book was adapted into a successful film of the same name in 1994, but it resulted in further tragedy. Brandon Lee, who played the main character, was accidentally shot and killed during filming, survived by his then-fiancee Eliza Hutton.

(james o’barr, trajik bir trafik kazasinda nisanlisi bethany’nin sarhos bir surucunun kullandigi araba tarafindan oldurulmesi sonrasinda cok sikintili gunler yasamaya baslamis. bu yasadigi sikintili donemden kurtulmak icin kendisini cizime verir, daha sonralari ise gazetede okudugu bir haberden ( detroit’te bir ciftin 20$ lik nisan yuzukleri icin oldurulmesi olayi ) oldukca etkilenir ve bunun bir hikâyenin baslangici icin guzel bir cikis noktası olduguna karar verir ve 1981 yillarinda berlin’de ilk the crow calismalarina baslar. icinde bulundugu sikintili yasam yuzunden eserini tamamlamasi uzun bir sure alir.james o’barr hikâyesinde kullandigi karakterleri kendi hayatindan secmis,gercek kisileri karakterleri ile ozdeslestirmistir.hatta filmde yer alan cete uyelerinin isimleri de detroit deki duvar yazilarindan alinmis gercek cete uyeleri isimleridir. (t-bird, tin-tin, top dollar, funboy ,skank) bunun uzerine olaylari bu hikâye uzerine oturtarak hikâyeyi tamamlamıştır.)


People once believed, that when someone dies, a crow carries their soul to the land of the dead. But sometimes, something so bad happens, that a terrible sadness is carried with it and the soul can't rest. Then sometimes, just sometimes the crow could bring that soul back to put the wrong things right

If the people we love are stolen from us, the way to have them live on is to never stop loving them. Buildings burn, people die, but real love is forever...

( İnsanlar eskiden suna inanirdi. Biri oldugu zaman bir karga gelip onun ruhunu oluler diyarina tasirmis..
Ama bazen çok kotu bir sey olur korkunc bir uzuntu ruhla beraber tasinir ve ruh dinlenemez ve bazen karga yanlis olan seyler duzenlemek icin ruhu geri getirebilir.....

Herseyin dogru oldugunu dusunurdum, arkadaslar,aileler,duygular..ama artik biliyorum eger sevgi gercekse ve iki insan beraber olmak istiyorsa kimse onlari ayiramaz...

Eger sevdıgimiz kisiler bizden calinmissa , Onlari uzun yaşatmanin yolu, Onlari sevmekten asla vazgecmemektir... binalar yanar, insanlar olur ama gercek ASk Olumsuzdur... )

- i love you.
- say it again..
- i love you.

- i love you.
- say it again..
- i love you.

mother is the name
for god

it won't rain all the time
the sky won't fall forever
and though the night seems long
your tears won't fall forever

Buildings Burn, People Die, But Real Love Is Forever Askim..
