Cartoonist, Empire State, Meanwhile, Demon
Jason Shiga was born and raised in Oakland, California. He has been drawing comics since 1996. His comics have a geeky side, and often feature exciting uses of math. Many of his comics are interactive and require the reader to make choices to move the story along. In his fifteen-year career, Shiga has created 5 graphic novels, 20 comic books, over a dozen magazines and newspaper strips, and the world’s second largest interactive comic. Although his works range from strips to graphic novels he is best known for his love of unusual structural forms. Jason's newest project is a 750-page science fiction epic entitled Demon. He is releasing it serially on his website, shigabooks.com.
