Richard Case (born 1964)[1] is an American comics artist, most often seen published by DC Comics, especially the Vertigo imprint.


Richard Case's first published comic book story appeared in Marvel Comics' Strange Tales vol. 2 #10 (Jan. 1988).[2] He moved to DC Comics and pencilled the majority of issues of Grant Morrison's run on Doom Patrol[3] beginning with issue #19 (Feb. 1989).[4] In 1992, he drew several issues of Darkhold: Pages from the Book of Sins for Marvel. Back at DC, Case inked Marc Hempel's pencils on the Sandman story "The Kindly Ones" and penciled a few pages in Hempel's style.[5][6] He illustrated Jamie Delano's Ghostdancing limited series, the final story arc of Peter Milligan's Shade, the Changing Man, and Hunter: The Age of Magic with Dylan Horrocks.[2] Since leaving the comics industry, he has worked extensively in computer game illustration, especially for Ubisoft.[7]
