About Kelley Jones
Kelley Jones (born July 23, 1962, in Sacramento, California) is an American comic book artist best known for his work on Batman with writer Doug Moench and on The Sandman with writer Neil Gaiman. He grew up in Citrus Heights.
Kelley Jones entered the comics industry as an inker for Marvel Comics with his first published work appearing in Micronauts #52 (May 1983). He penciled issue #59 (Aug. 1984) and when the series was relaunched as Micronauts: The New Voyages in October 1984, he continued penciling the series through most of its 20 issue run. At DC Comics, Jones redesigned Deadman, making the character look thin and skeletal. Deadman's face, formerly drawn to resemble a normal human's head with pale white skin, now looked like a skull. In 1990 and 1991, he drew several issues of Neil Gaiman's The Sandman series with contributions to the "Dream Country" and "Season of Mists" story arcs. Jones and inker John Beatty collaborated with writer Doug Moench on a series of Batman tales including Batman: Dark Joker the Wild and the vampire Batman trilogy beginning with Batman & Dracula: Red Rain. Jones drew the covers for many of the chapters of the "Batman: Knightfall" crossover storyline. He became the penciler of Batman with issue #515 (Feb. 1995) and worked on such story arcs as "Contagion".
