Jordan Crane (b.1973) is an American comics creator. He grew up in Long Beach, CA. Warning signs of his renaissance-man abilities were evident in his sojourn at his college newspaper, the Daily Trojan, at the University of Southern California, where he functioned at various times as a cartoonist, art director and columnist (not to mention his engineering studies). Crane went on to publish both his own and other people’s comics through his press, Red Ink, and edit and design the ambitious anthology NON (which won several AIGA 365 awards), among other projects (which included silk-screening and a record label). Crane lives and works in Los Angeles, CA.—Fantagraphics.
