Jonah Newman is a cartoonist and editor based in Brooklyn, New York. He's the author and illustrator of many self-published comics, the historical fiction webcomic Empire on Edge, and the young adult graphic novel Out of Left Field, forthcoming from Little, Brown Books for Young Readers. He's also an editor at Scholastic, working on graphic novels and picture books.


When he's not creating, editing, or reading graphic novels, you might find Jonah binge-listening to history podcasts, petting his two sons (who are cats), or getting way too invested in his fantasy baseball team.
