Erin Shiba (shibear) | 9 comments The author page for Jim Campbell has books listed for... I think 10? different authors with the same name. There are 3 different comic book illustrators (per the comic book database), a visual artist, a football sportswriter, a children's non-fiction sportswriter, an Irish social worker, an educator, a pilot, and a theology professor. I've found Library of Congress authority records for 8 of these, if that's helpful in any way.

Emy (emypt) | 5020 comments Are you able to give some links to the different Jims? That would help with splitting up the work :)

Erin Shiba (shibear) | 9 comments Sure! At least, I've put together a few. (Sussing out the comic illustrators/letterers and sportswriters has become a bit of a task. Much respect to those of you who do this all the time!) I did notice that Over the Garden Wall, At the Shore, and Penguins of Madagascar have been put on a distinct record since I posted. The other info that I can give you with certainty:

-Irish professor of social work, 6 titles listed under "Publications"
http://www.ucd.ie/research/people/soc...
LOC record

-Visual artist
http://www.jimcampbell.tv/publications/
LOC record

-Pilot, author of Flyers Guide to Ultralights
LOC record

-Facilitator/consultant, author of Parish Pastoral Councils
LOC record

Erin Shiba (shibear) | 9 comments After much scrolling, I've ascertained that these titles are attributable to the new Jim Campbell listing (Over the Garden Wall/At the Shore):

Krachmacher
Age of Reptiles
Star Wars Tales
Over the Garden Wall (still some on the old multi-Jim record)
Syncopated
Spidey
Spider-Verse
Strange Case of Mr. Hyde
Meathaus
Wolverine and the X-Men
Spongebob Comics

I found reference to all of these on "Angry Jim"'s websites:

http://officialangryjim.tumblr.com/
LOC record

There is another Jim Campbell who works in comics, but this Jim is a colorist, while the other is a letterer (will relay more on him if I can find anything).

Emy (emypt) | 5020 comments Cheers Erin!

Just a point, for LC links, you need to use the permalink not the search link because it expires.

E.g.
LC control no.: n 78087172
LCCN Permalink: https://lccn.loc.gov/n78087172

for their Jim Campbell disambig record.

Erin Shiba (shibear) | 9 comments Oh blaar! I should've known that. Okay, take 2:

Social worker Jim
Visual artist Jim
Pilot Jim
Facilitator Jim
Angry Jim

Is this helpful info? I've only posted on the boards once before, and I want to be helpful, not excessive. Thanks again for following up on this!

Emy (emypt) | 5020 comments Very helpful! I'm a bit snowed at the moment, but I'm sure someone else will be along to grab those soon.

PS "Angry Jim" made me grin :)
