Jason Metcalf

Cover Artist of Aliens vs. Zombies & Warlord of OZ

Jason Metcalf grew up in the Pacific Northwest dreaming of a career in comics and fantasy art projects, but could not find a way to make that a viable option. For 10 years he worked on notable construction projects in the Seattle, Washington area, working on his illustration skills at night and on weekends. After several fits and starts, in 2008, while at his table at Emerald City Comicon, Jason was approached to pencil a Wrath of the Tittans, for Bluewater. The project led to a collaboration with Space Goat Productions on IDW’s Eternal Descent – a gritty, dark yet slick yarn about angels, demons, rock & roll, and a girl. Jason soon left his construction career behind.

Since his IDW run, Jason has continued to build his resume with work on HBO’s Game of Thrones, the History Channel’s Vikings, Stan Lee’s POW! Entertainment, several Marvel trading card series, and World of Warcraft card game art. Jason is currently providing cover art for Zenescope Entertainment on titles such as Aliens vs. Zombies, Wonderland, Grimm Fairy Tales, Robyn Hood, Warlord of OZ and Zombies vs. Cheerleaders. He is a regular cover art contributor on several titles from Double Take, a comic subsidiary of the gaming company, Take 2 Interactive.

In his spare time, Jason is whittling away on a high fantasy comic series of his own. Jason needs more spare time.
