Jason Pearson

__NOTOC__Jason Pearson is an American comic book artist and creator of "Body Bags". He debuted in comics with a back-up story in "Legion of Super-Heroes" #22 in 1991, and Pearson called series writer Keith Giffen one of his mentors [http://forum.newsarama.com/showthread.php?s=&threadid=14689] . Pearson is also a former member of the Atlanta, Georgia-based Gaijin Studios, and has participated in several Gaijin Studios-related projects.

In 1992, Gaijin Studios were in talks with Image Comics to do an 11-issue anthology series entitled "Ground Zero", featuring the work of the current studio members. The series was to have debuted Pearson's "Body Bags", but Image ultimately passed on the series. Pearson continued developing the concept of "Body Bags", and it ultimately saw print as a four issue miniseries as the debut title for the Blanc Noir line of titles produced by Gaijin Studios for Dark Horse Comics.

In 1998, Pearson began work on a sequel to "Body Bags". Intended as a six issue miniseries, Pearson had begun illustrating it when he was struck for an illness that left him unable to work for several months. When he returned to work, he found himself unhappy with the work he had done so far and opted to focus on other work for the time being. He did several short stories for America's Best Comics and Wildstorm. His first full issue after "Body Bags" was "Global Frequency #11", which itself was delayed numerous months before release.

In 2004, Wildstorm announced and solicited a four issue miniseries written and drawn by Pearson called "Redbird", but the series was delayed and ultimately cancelled before it saw print. In an interview for Newsarama.com [http://forum.newsarama.com/showthread.php?s=&threadid=14689] prior to the cancellation, Pearson said that "Redbird" was intended to be a trilogy of miniseries for the character.

In 2005, 12 Gauge Comics reprinted the original "Body Bags" four issue miniseries in a collected edition. Later, they released the first new "Body Bags" material in years, "Body Bags: 3 The Hard Way". In addition to publishing "Body Bags" through 12 Gauge, he is also on staff as the Director of Development.
