Christopher Jones

Christopher Jones is a Minnesota-based illustrator and comic book artist who’s worked for a wide range of comic book publishers including DC, Marvel, Titan, Slave Labor Graphics, Image, Malibu, Caliber, and more.

Alongside his Doctor Who work, he was the regular series artist on Young Justice, based on the popular Cartoon Network animated TV series. He also contributed to DC’s popular Batman ’66 title, based on the 1960’s Batman TV Series with Adam West, written by Jeff Parker.

Christopher’s other work for DC Comics includes Batman & RobinDay of Judgment and the cult series Young Heroes in Love. He’s also done extensive work for DC’s Licensing department, providing everything from promotional artwork to character turns for action figure design, in styles ranging from a mainstream superhero style to matching the animation style of several different TV shows.

Matthew Dow Smith

Matthew Dow Smith has been working in comics for over 25 years, for American publishers DC and Marvel, Dark Horse and IDW Publishing, but when the Covid-19 crisis shut down the industry, he started doing his own comic book stories, and posting them for people to read for free on social media.

A series of autobiographical short stories came first, and then a serialised comic called “Johnny Chaos”, which he’s continuing on Patreon.
