I’m Jonathan Case - a cartoonist from the great Pacific Northwest. I love to make art, to write stories, and to go on adventures with loved ones - especially if there’s a hammock involved. Daddy’s sleepy.
Stuff I’ve done:
My most recent graphic novel, The New Deal (author/artist, Dark Horse), was a nominee for the Reuben, Harvey, and Oregon Book awards for best graphic album. In 2012 I snagged an Eisner award for Green River Killer, A True Detective Story (Dark Horse). My other books include Dear Creature (author/artist, Dark Horse), Batman ’66 (artist, DC), Superman: American Alien (artist, DC), and Over the Garden Wall: Distillatoria (author, BOOM). I’m currently working on a new graphic novel, Little Monarchs (author/artist, Holiday House), which is a sort of a joyful post-apocalyptic adventure book for kids.
In addition to comics, I paint murals, create book covers, and illustrate for print. You can find some of that up on walls around Portland, Oregon (our current home base).
My chief adventuring partners are my wife, Sarah, and our two daughters, Dorothy (pictured), and Miriam. Our son, Otis, who we lost in 2016, tags along in spirit.
