Marc Jackson

Marc Jackson is a cartoonist from Macclesfield in Cheshire. He’s created comics and characters for The BEANO, Aces Weekly, Comicscene, the SPARK, The Brooklyn Red Hook star-revue, Spiralbound/Medium, Monkeys fighting robots and the Shell-Yeah! zine.

Marc also created a comic in partnership with Able Child Africa, seeking to help disadvantaged children in Rwanda navigate basic hygiene issues and also the Coronavirus.

In 2020 during the pesky pandemic, he turned to KO-FI (an online platform where creators can share work and be paid in cyber-coffees) and launched two web comics, ‘The all-new adventures of MAGNUM P.I.’ and ‘SPOOKIDS’.

He also launched ‘BRING THE NINJA’ a weekly strip on his Instagram in April that same year.

Last year Marc started working with New York based writer and teacher Roni Sarig on ‘Rocky Princess Astronaut’ a full length comic about a princess that goes to the moon. It’s the first time he has worked with another writer and the comic will be released in June.

In less crazy times, Marc runs cartoon art workshops in Schools, Libraries and at festivals and also organises MACC-POW! a day of comic art in his hometown.
