X-Men | Avengers Variants by J. Scott CampbellJeffery Scott Campbell (born April 12, 1973) is an American comic book artist. He was initially known professionally as Jeffery Scott, but is best known as J. Scott Campbell. He rose to fame as an artist for Wildstorm Comics, though he has since done work for Marvel Comics (most notably as a cover artist on The Amazing Spider-Man), and the video game industry.

As Campbell prepared to show his samples at the 1993 San Diego Comic Con, the series WildC.A.T.S premiered by Jim Lee‘s publishing studio, Wildstorm Productions (then called Homage Studios). One issue advertised a talent search for which readers could submit artwork, so Campbell put together a package that included a four-page WildC.A.T.S story and sent it in.

A week and a half later, Jim Lee telephoned Campbell and asked him if he would move to San Diego to work for him. Initially working under the professional name Jeffery Scott, Campbell’s first comics work was two pinups for the Homage Studios Swimsuit Special in 1993. Campbell went on to co-create the teen superhero team Gen¹³, which debuted in Deathmate Black (September 1993), before going onto to star in their own series. Gen13 by J. Scott CampbellIn 1998, Campbell, together with fellow comics artists Joe Madureira and Humberto Ramos, founded the Cliffhanger imprint as part of Wildstorm Productions. He launched his comic series Danger Girl through this imprint. The story, which followed the adventures of a group of female secret agents, made the most of Campbell’s talents drawing well-endowed women and dramatic action sequences.

The Danger Girl series has since generated a video game for the Sony PlayStation, as well as several comic spinoffs in the forms of limited series and one-shots that were drawn by different artists in the American comics industry. Most of these spin-offs featured story outlines from Campbell himself.

Between 2001 and 2013 Campbell did numerous covers for The Amazing Spider-Man, including issues 30 – 35 in 2001, 50 – 52 and 500 in 2003, and seven issues done sporadically from issues 601 in 2009 and 700 in 2013.

Campbell has gone on to become one of the most prolific cover artists in the business.  His variant covers sell for hundreds of dollars on the secondary market and are coveted by collectors for their value as well as their beauty.  His online presence is felt at jscottcampbell.com where he is currently promoting his exclusive Josie and the Pussycats cover among many other terrific comics and prints.
