Hello! I’m Jim Gibbons. I’m a comic book professional, a beer lover, a mustache grower, and a hirsute raconteur. I’m also a sworn enemy of the peanut (due to my deadly allergy). This is my blog.
I currently work as a freelance editor and writer. For rates and availability, please contact me through my professional website: TheJimGibbons.com
I helped launch Stēla, a brand new digital comics publisher specializing in mobile native sequential storytelling, as the senior editor. I signed on and edited numerous title during my time there, including Chaos Arena: Crystal Fighters, Santos, Tribes, House Girls, Breaker, Deja Brew, Jaeger, I.P.P.: Intellectual Property Police, Pilgrim Finch, Victory Mountain, USA, and many more.
I worked as an editor at Dark Horse Comics. (More on that here and here, though these are a bit outdated now.) I edited titles like Buffy The Vampire Slayer, Angel & Faith, The Strain, Nanjing: The Burning City, ApocalyptiGirl: An Aria for the End Times, The Black Beetle, Zodiac Starforce, Polar: Came from the Cold, Juice Squeezers, and many more. I also worked alongside Dark Horse president and publisher Mike Richardson on the 80-page monthly anthology Dark Horse Presents, which won the Eisner Award and Diamond Gem Award for Best Anthology in 2012, 2013, and 2014, the Harvey Award for Best Anthology in 2012, 2013, 2014, and 2015, as well as the Stumptown Comics Award for Best Anthology in 2014.
I wrote this comic with art by Andrew MacLean and Francesco Chiappara—Mars: Space Barbarian. (More soon!) And this one with art by Caleb Goellner—Birch Squatch: The Last Bigfoot. As well as Young Shaq in the Bad Future with art by Ethan Young.
I spent ten summers going to and working at summer camps, which led to a lot of stories. Read more about them at my summer camp memoir blog Nothing More American. (Much more on this soon!)
Once upon a time, I was a journalist. This section explains that, but most of the links are dead now, which is baloney.
