Comic Artist: Uncanny X-Men, Iron Man, Return of Wolverine

Jay Leisten is a Louisville-based comic artist who has become a rising star in his field—and a WonderFest favorite!

Jay began his career in comics as an intern at Top Cow. After two years in L.A. working on titles like Tombraider, Witchblade, Darkness, and Inferno, he re-located to Florida to work at Crossgen with long time friend Greg Land on Sojourn. When Crossgen closed its doors, he began working for Marvel and DC on covers for several titles. Before long he was working on Thor, Legion, and Black Panther.

Jay recently finished working on a 3-year run with Greg Land on Uncanny X-men, a year on Iron Man, Monsters Unleashed, Astonishing X-Men and more. His work is also featured in Moon Knight with Jerome Opena, Nightwing with Don Kramer, Outsiders with Fernando Pasarin, Captain Britain & Dark X-men with Leonard Kirk, Death of Wolverine, Secret Empire, Monsters Unleashed and more with Steve McNiven—as well as several other Marvel projects.

Currently Jay is working on a Spider-Man project, Return of Wolverine, and a creator-owned project.
