Darren Goodhart was born in 1962 at Hannibal, Missouri, the first son to Eddie and Nancy Goodhart. He grew up in Louisiana, Missouri and has a brother named Scott, two years younger than him. At the age of 4, Goodhart's mother bought him his very first Superman comic book and from there, the course his life would take got charted.

While he was a good student throughout his school years, the one thing that he really loved to do was draw, and by the age of 11 he knew he wanted to be a comic book artist. As he got older though, he got a little wise that it might be good to have something else to fall back on. By the time he graduated from high school, he decided to look into the entire world of commercial art and graphic design.

From 1981 to 1983, Goodhart attended the
Art Institute of Pittsburgh and had a whole new world open up to him. It wasn't just a matter of going from a small town to a big city, it was also being exposed to many different types of individuals and many ways of accomplishing their goals. Goodhart graduated from The Art Institute of Pittsburgh in 1983 with an Associate's in a Specialized Technology degree.

In 1984, Goodhart got his first professional commercial art job, working in the advertising department for
Central Hardware stores in St. Louis, Missouri. In 1985, Goodhart achieved his lifelong dream and got his first professional comic book assignment, drawing Steve Woron's Survivors for Sirius Graphics.

Since then, Goodhart has worked further in commercial art- from retail advertising to ad agency work to corporate manufacturing and even further with his own freelance endeavors. He's also been further published as a comic book artist with over 50 published credits.
