Jeff Johnson

Written by Cherry City Comic Con. Posted in Artist, Artist Alley, Special Guests, Writer

Jeff began his career as an artist at a very early age. His first professional job was a post apocalyptic adventure comic strip he drew for a local newspaper at the tender age of 17.

From there Jeff moved on to draw many different stories and characters for many different companies. His comic work ranges from Wonder Man, The X-Men and Spider-Man at Marvel to Green Lantern, Jonah Hex and Supergirl at DC Comics and he even helped create a kung fu comedy, Way of the Rat for Crossgen. When not drawing comics, Jeff was lucky enough to work on many animated shows and movies. He designed a surprising amount of your favorite characters on the Boondocks, did a stint storyboarding Young Justice and often found himself drawing either Batman, Superman or the Transformers beating up on a villain.

When not sitting at the table, Jeff likes make up ridiculous voices for his pets and have them debate the meaning of life.
