Phil “Ballsy” Balsman began his career as one of the founding members of the in-house lettering department at DC Comics, where he did design work and lettering for such titles as All-Star Superman, Blue Beetle, Scalped, Swamp Thing, and many others. He moved on to work for Random House Publishing in 2007, designing covers for the Del Rey and Ballantine imprints, as well as art directing and designing logos for their Del Rey Manga imprint.

In 2010 he left to form his own studio, Odin Star Industries, where he and his wife, Paige Pumphrey, work together in Brooklyn, New York. They handle all cover design and production for Kodansha Comics, as well as interiors and lettering, along with work for various clients, including DC Comics, Marvel Comics, Del Rey Books, Ballantine Books, Random House Publishing, Simon & Schuster, Sony Computer Entertainment, and Grand Central Publishing.
