Jason Waltrip and John Waltrip are identical twins who comprise a comic book art and writing team, known for their work on Robotech comics and in webcomics.

Comics career

The Waltrips were discovered by a talent scout in 1987 who was sent a copy of their amateur comic called CyberKnights. They first became publicly known for their Robotech work with Robotech II: The Sentinels from Eternity Comics in 1988. They soon followed up with other spin-off comic series such as Robotech Genesis: The Legend of Zor along with work on occasional swimsuit issues.

Their work on the comic adaptation of The Sentinels spanned two publishers, Eternity and Academy Comics through 1996, longer than any other Robotech creative team. However, The Sentinels comic series ended prematurely after four of five planned parts had been published. A purported follow up series by Antarctic Press, Robotech: Sentinels Rubicon, bore no resemblance to any previous (or subsequent) Robotech material, and was itself cancelled after only two issues.

In 2005, the Waltrips picked up from where they left off with Robotech: Prelude to the Shadow Chronicles, a 5-part comic book miniseries which bridged their work on The Sentinels with the new animated film Robotech: The Shadow Chronicles.

The Waltrips also inked Sokora Refugees for Tokyopop.[1] Jason alone drew some stories for Djustine, Calavera and other adult comics created and written by Italian author Enrico Teodorani, published in Italy and the United States.

The two have also had a lengthy career in webcomics. Jason has drawn Fans since 1999, and John drew the complete Rip and Teri.
