Jason Shepard is a Lexington, Kentucky-based comic artist/cartoonist and our guest for episode 35 of Weird Appalachia! Honing his skills at a young age, he was inspired by comic books he would read as a child and the low-budget sci-fi/horror/action flicks of the 80s. Over the years, he’s developed a uniquely-recognizable art style that incorporates many references to retro pop culture, is writing, illustrating and publishing his own independent comic book and is about to make appearances at some upcoming festivals where his work will be most at home, including Point Pleasant, West Virginia’s legendary Mothman Festival!
