Jason Aaron (born January 28, 1973 in Jasper, Alabama) is an American comic book writer.
Jason was born in Jasper, Alabama, graduated from Shelby County High School in Columbiana, Alabama and has a Bachelor's degree from UAB with a Major in English and a Minor in History. He currently lives in Prairie Village, KS a suburb of Kansas City with his wife and two sons. Jason is a cousin of Gustav Hasford, author of The Short-Timers, which was later adapted into the film Full Metal Jacket. Jason wrote The Other Side to honour Gus.
Aaron will be the new ongoing writer on Ghost Rider as well as contributing a story for Black Panther. . The contract does not effect his work on Scalped, his creator-owned series for DC/Vertigo. He also wrote the Penguin issue of The Joker's Asylum.
After a brief stint on Wolverine in 2007, Aaron returns to the character with the ongoing series Wolverine: Weapon X."With Wolverine: Weapon X we'll be trying to mix things up like that from arc to arc, so the first arc is a typical sort of black ops story but the second arc will jump right into the middle of a completely different genre," says Aaron.
