More About the Author

John Linton Roberson was born in South Carolina, 1969, and currently resides in Berkeley, California.

An alumnus of DePaul University's Goodman School of Drama, Roberson studied Soviet film theory and history under the late Dr. Richard De Cordova, and philosophy of tragedy & comedy under Prof. Stephen Houlgate.

Becoming a cartoonist in 1997 after a time as a playwright, he published the quarterly humor anthology "Plastic" from 1998-2001 through his Bottomless Studio imprint, contributing Vitriol, a 12-chapter black comedy. The magazine also featured work by Sam Henderson, Kamagurka & Herr Seele ("Cowboy Henk," originally in RAW), and Emily Kaplan, amongst other contributors. From 1999-2001 he created several strips for the San Francisco web magazine Spark-Online, usually under the title Slash & Burn.

In early 2003, he was editor, publisher, and one of 26 contributors to Working for the Man, a benefit for William and Nadine Messner-Loebs. The collection contained an introduction by Gary Groth as well as work by Sam Kieth, Sam Henderson, Charles Alverson, Joe Blackmon, Chad Parenteau, Steve Bissette, Ted Rall, Donna Barr, and P. Craig Russell, among others. It was the first large anthology of comics published in e-book form.

Roberson created the characters Vladrushka and Rosa & Annalisa for Eros/Fantagraphics from 2003-2006, later serializing their adventures in the quarterly This Sickness, which grew out of his webcomic of the same name at the now-defunct adultwebcomics.com, its most popular feature after Jess Fink. More recent work (available at jlroberson.org) has included the new satire SUZY SPREADWELL.

He has also collaborated with a number of writers, including Charles Alverson, Janet Harvey, Shane Durgee, and Evan Forsch.

From 2008-2009, he was the regular illustrator for humorist David Volk's column "Last Stop" in Journey Magazine. In June 2009 pages from Story of OH! and Martha were displayed in the Fetish & Erotic Art Exhibition at the Robert Daniel Galley in Tacoma, Washington.

His work has been described by critics as "fairly obsessed with sex & death." He disagrees with "fairly."

Current projects include more of his adaptation (the first complete one for comics) of Frank Wedekind's LULU, the above-mentioned character Suzy Spreadwell, and a new series of stories satirizing the comics industry with his PLASTIC character Uncle Cyrus.

Love him or die.
