John Linton Roberson (born in South Carolina, 1969), also known as JLRoberson, is an American writer, illustrator, and cartoonist, and publisher at the imprint Bottomless Studio.

An alumnus of DePaul University's Goodman School of Drama, Roberson studied Soviet film theory and history under the late Dr. Richard De Cordova, and philosophy of tragedy & comedy under Prof. Stephen Houlgate.

Becoming a cartoonist in 1997 upon moving to Berkeley, California, after a time as a playwright in Chicago, he published the quarterly humor anthology "Plastic" from 1998-2001 through his Bottomless Studio imprint, contributing Vitriol, a 12-chapter black comedy. The magazine also featured work by Sam Henderson, Kamagurka & Herr Seele ("Cowboy Henk," originally in RAW), and Emily Kaplan, amongst other contributors. From 1999-2001 he created several strips for the San Francisco web magazine Spark-Online, usually under the title Slash & Burn.

In early 2003, he was editor, publisher, and one of 26 contributors to Working for the Man, a benefit for William and Nadine Messner-Loebs. The collection contained an introduction by Gary Groth as well as work by Sam Kieth, Sam Henderson, Charles Alverson, Joe Blackmon, Chad Parenteau, Steve Bissette, Ted Rall, Donna Barr, and P. Craig Russell, among others. It was the first large anthology of comics published in e-book form.

Roberson created the characters Vladrushka and Rosa & Annalisa for Eros/Fantagraphics from 2003-2006, later serializing their adventures in the quarterly This Sickness, which grew out of his webcomic of the same name at the now-defunct adultwebcomics.com, its most popular feature after Jess Fink.

He has also collaborated with a number of writers, including Charles Alverson, Janet Harvey, Shane Durgee, and Evan Forsch.

From 2008-2009, he was the regular illustrator for humorist David Volk's column "Last Stop" in Journey Magazine. In June 2009 pages from Story of OH! and Martha were displayed in the Fetish & Erotic Art Exhibition at the Robert Daniel Galley in Tacoma, Washington.

After returning to California, in 2013 he published LULU Book 1 and "Strange Fruit" in vol. 3 of the acclaimed GRAPHIC CANON.

His work has been described by critics as "fairly obsessed with sex & death." He disagrees with "fairly."

Upcoming works include more of his adaptation of Frank Wedekind's LULU, the first volume of which--with an introduction by Martin Pasko-- is available from Amazon, Comixology and Createspace.

Also: an ambitious multiverse parody saga begun in 2011 he'll never finish involving Vladrushka, Octobriana, and Dr. Mabuse, "Let Running Dogs Lie"

...and a new character, Suzy Spreadwell, the first episode of which is available online at said website.
