  • Nat Jones

For more than a decade Nat Jones has worked with or for nearly every major comic book publisher in the industry. He has worked on hundreds of projects with companies including Dark Horse, Image, IDW and Fox Atomic. Nat began his professional art career while he was still in high school, working with many of the day’s top independent comic book publishers as well as illustrating Looney Tunes books for Warner Bros. At the age of twenty-three Nat gained widespread acclaim as artist on Todd Mcfarlane’s Spawn:The Dark Ages, working alongside horror writer Steve Niles. After working on numerous other books, Nat once again found himself in the spotlight, working with Musician/Director Rob Zombie on the Dark Horse Comic The Nail. This highly acclaimed work of horror garnered attention throughout the media, including stories in Rolling Stone Magazine and mentions on MTV and VH1. Nat then went on to collaborate once again with writer Steve Niles on his immensely successful 30 Days of Night series before returning to Spawn, where he designed the first ever She-Spawn to appear in comics. Nat also worked alongside Actor/Director David Arquette to create a comic adaptation of his film The Tripper.

In 2006, Nat and fellow collaborator Jay Fotos founded Frazetta Comics. In a collaborative effort with writer Joshua Ortega, Nat and Jay created the #1 selling Image Comics title for the year 2007: Frank Frazetta’s Death Dealer: Shadows of Mirahan. Co-written by Nat, Death Dealer: Shadows of Mirahan tells the first and only Death Dealer story fully approved by legendary fantasy artist Frank Frazetta. Death Dealer holds Image Comic’s record for the fastest sellout for a series issue #1. The comic sold out in a record-breaking six hours. Death Dealer: Shadows of Mirahan also spawned a Dungeons and Dragons RPG produced by Goodman Games in 2009 featuring Nat’s art. Nat’s art on Death Dealer also became the basis for a licensed and fully approved Death Dealer statue. With the success of the Death Dealer series, keeping true to the Frazetta name and legacy, Frazetta Comics launched a new variety of Frazetta inspired titles: Swamp Demon, Dark Kingdom, Neanderthal, Moon Maid, Freedom, Creatures, Dracula Meets the Wolfman and Sorcerer.

Not limited to just the comic medium, Nat also works in other creative media ranging from animation and album art to TV, movies, and toy design, including work on the 28 Weeks Later DVD and conceptual art for Director Rob Zombie on his films The Devil’s Rejects and the upcoming Tyrannosaurus Rex.

Nat is currently working on several projects including a soon to be announced comic with acclaimed writer Joe Hill and the film The Captured Bird with director Jovanka Vuckovic and Producer Guillermo del Toro.

Nat currently lives and works in Los Angeles, California.
