Jill Thompson

Writer/artist, The Scary Godmother

Jill Thompson is the Eisner Award–winning creator of The Scary Godmother, which has been seen not only in comics but also on stage and screen. In 2001, there were 26 performances of The Scary Godmother at The Athenaeum Theater in Chicago. That play became The Scary Godmother Holiday Spooktakular, which is shown each year on Cartoon Network and proved so popular that another adaptation of a Scary Godmother story—The Revenge of Jimmy—was also brought to animated life.

Jill is also the co-creator of Finals with Will Pfeifer for DC/Vertigo and the award-winning Beasts of Burden for Dark Horse with writer Evan Dorkin. Her other comics work includes Wonder Woman, Sandman, Death at Death’s Door, The Little Endless Storybook, Delirium’s Party, The Invisibles, The Dead Boy Detectives, and many others. Lately she’s been busy developing Scary Godmother toys, fulfilling Kickstarter rewards, designing wrestling gear for WWE Superstar Daniel Bryan, and painting multiple comics stories.
