Jon B. Cooke

Jon B. Cooke, editor of the two-time Eisner Award-winning magaine Comic Book Artist was born a full-fledged comic book geek. He started collecting funnybooks in the early 1970s, inspired by the artistry of Jack Kirby and the King's Fourth World titles. For a time during those formative years, Cooke edited the fledgling fan effort, Omegazine, which reached a whopping circulation of 25 or so, a fanzine his three brothers contributed to. Cooke attended the University of Rhode Island in the early 1980s as a history/journalism major, where he developed a taste for print work as editor of the campus hippie/lefty magazine, the Great Swamp Gazette. In 1995, Cooke began contributing to The Jack Kirby Collector, published by TwoMorrows, and by 1998, he created Comic Book Artist, producing 25 issues for that company. During that time he also edited The Warren Companion, Streetwise, and two CBA collections, as well as designed numerous books on comics-related subjects, including The Amazing World of Carmine Infantino, Kimota! The Miracleman Companion, The Art of Nick Cardy, as well as issues of Alter Ego. Once, in the Dark Ages, Cooke was a graphic designer and art director for East Coast advertising agencies, but now he lives a dream job helming CBA, the magazine devoted to the love of comics old and new. He resides in Rhode Island with his wife, Beth, and three sons, Ben, Josh and Danny. With immense pride and enthusiasm, the editor moved CBA to Top Shelf Productions in 2003, where it has remained since.
