10 Comicbooks And The Celebrities Who Created Them

It’s not hard to believe that Hollywood, with its massive budget superhero flicks, inspires many of its members to transfer their talents to the comicbook world. Musicians, actors/actresses, and filmmakers explore creative boundaries and take a dip into their own comicbook series, sometimes abandoning their previous artistic roles in society for this new mask.

Gerard Way


The My Chemical Romance frontman was sitting on this concept for a while. In September of 2007  it finally came to fruition in a six-issue limited series with Dark Horse Comics. The series, The Umbrella Academy: Apocalypse Suite, became highly regarded among comic creators and even earned itself an Eisner award in 2008 for Best Finite Series/Limited Series. He has continued his work tirelessly in the comicbook world, and there have been talks of a television adaptation that has been in development since 2015.

Thomas Jane

Since 2005, Thomas Jane had delved into the world of sci-fi comicbooks. During his recovery period from a car accident, he had experienced vicodin-fueled fever dreams that depicted “horrible alien deathspiders.” It was from these nightmarish apparitions that Bad Planet was formed with the help of illustrator Greg Staples and co-writer Steve Niles.

Quentin Tarantino

Who knows what else Quentin will tackle in his quest for deeper storytelling? Fans gleefully received the well-known director’s recent comic, a prequel to The Hateful Eight, which was featured in Playboy. His efforts with Vertigo Comics created the Django graphic novel/comicbook series to further expand on the story of the film with the same name.

Rashida Jones

Jones co-wrote a comic series called Frenemy of the State, loosely based on the notion of Paris Hilton being a secret genius, stringing the none-the-wiser public along with her exploits. Thus, the posh heiress known as Ariana Von Holmberg was newly recruited as a CIA operative, using numerous scandals to cover her tracks. Rashida Jones had some help from co-creators Christina Weir and Nunzio DeFilippis with this initial comicbook effort.
