Phil Jackson

mr.philI cemented my destiny as a comics lifer by choosing to work an NYC comic convention instead of attending my high school graduation. I spent six years in comics retail management, constantly increasing the store’s focus on indie comics. With my former Joe Kubert School roommate and DINK co-founder Charlie LaGreca, I co-created and co-hosted the comics podcast Indie Spinner Rack in 2005, promoting quality indie comics and conducting interviews with numerous alternative comic creators over the course of more than 200 episodes. Under the banner of the ISR podcast, I co-edited two student scholarship benefit comics anthologies, writing and drawing a short story for each.
