czop.jpg Chicago born and bred, I traveled east to work in comics for the fame and fortune!  A graduate of the Joe Kubert School of Graphic art and Cinematic Animation, I broke into the comic book industry by doing background inks on early issues of Shade the Changing Man in the very early 90's, and a short stint inking for Innovation Comics. After graduation I started working at Marvel Comics, drawing the Punisher and branched out penciling many other books early on including a little bit of everything from New Warriors, Spider-Woman limited series, X-Men Unlimited, Marvel Comics Presents, Avengers West Coast, Iron Man etc. After a short stint at Valiant Comics working on a few issues of Ninjak, I also ended up inking many books for Marvel including Generation X, X-Men:Phoenix, X-Force, X-Men Unlimited, and other books with an X in the title. My first independent comic gig was on Marie Javins "Scorched Birth" in 99. But getting to write, draw, and ink "Billy's House" for this NDN project is one of my favorite jobs to date!

    John, what a story. Was the house really that bad? What happened to that poor Billy. How could anyone live in that atmosphere? You drew it almost too convincingly…..
    Thanks you do great work

  2. Mike Cavallaro

    Well, I got to see this story develop and take shape, but this is the first time I been able to just sit down and read it. What an exquisite collision of thoughts and emotions, all perfectly presented in John’s classic comics stylings. I think its these weird, awkward moments of our childhoods that stick with us and resonate the most. You did a great job capturing this one. Great layouts and beautiful linework. Top notch!

  3. Thomas Baehr

    Boy, that sticks forever. And you picture it so great, I even can smell it …

  4. natsch

    Love all the visuals in the house! You really take us into that squalid hellhole!

  5. Maurice Fontenot

    Excellent job, John. From art to script is was funny, sad and gross at the same time. Great stuff!

  6. Tim Hamilton

    Right! Like Maurice said, funny, sad and…then more sad.
    What happened to them eventually? That’s what I want to know.

  7. Rick Parker

    Nice work, John. I think your approach and execution fir the story perfectly. I can’t wait to see what you do next!

  8. Rick Parker

    I meant to say “your approach and execution FIT the story perfectly.” Mr. Czop, you know I am anti-fir and always will be.

    It was a good strip. I have seen a lot of those kinds of houses myself. I rented to people and they had trash 8 inches deep in the house in 6 months and had a baby crawling around on it?
