J. G. Jones is an American comic book artist. Jones is best known for his work as cover artist on various comic book series, including a stint on Brian K. Vaughan‘s Y: The Last Man (Vertigo Comics), and, for DC Comics, the six-issue limited series Villains United written by Gail Simone, as well as all 52 covers for the maxi-series 52.
Jones’ interior art credits include: “Wonder Woman: The Hiketeia” (pencils only) written by Greg Rucka, Mark Millar‘s Wanted and Grant Morrison‘s (pencils and inks) published by Marvel Boy published by Marvel.
J.G. Jones also provided covers for Wonder Woman over a lengthy amount of time, included the two Bat-centric ones pictured above. Below is one of his 52 covers featuring Bruce Wayne, actually the only one as that series was all about how the DC Universe handled the absence of Superman, Batman and Wonder Woman over the course of a year.
Recently, Jones reunited with his Marvel Boy collaborator Grant Morrison on the DC’s huge Final Crisis miniseries, handling both cover and interior duties (until deadline issues forced him to utilize fill-in artists starting with issue #4). Final Crisis featured pretty much every active DC Universe character, including Batman. It also featured…
….Batman’s “death”. Spoiler.
But of course, Batman’s not dead. But the DCU thinks he is, so currently (as explained in the previous Frank Quitely post) Dick Grayson has taken up the mantle of the Bat. Jones has provided variant covers for all of the Batman titles for the month of June, two of which can be seen below.
