After receiving a Bachelor of Fine Arts degree from the Rhode Island School of Design, Richard Case worked as an assistant to comics artist Walt Simonson in 1985.[2] Case's first credited published comic book story appeared in Marvel Comics' Strange Tales vol. 2 #10 (Jan. 1988).[3] He moved to DC Comics and pencilled the majority of issues of Grant Morrison's run on Doom Patrol[4] beginning with issue #19 (Feb. 1989).[5] 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.[6][7] 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.[3] Since leaving the comics industry, he has worked extensively in computer game illustration especially for Ubisoft.[8]
