* ReusedCharacterDesign: In the tradition of other great Asian cartoonists like OsamuTezuka, the characters in his comics are designed to appear as if they're actors playing different parts across different productions. For example, Sara from ''Empire State'', Sarah from ''Demon'', Finch from ''Bookhunter'' and Jackson's girlfriend from ''Double Happiness'', are all played by the same "actress".

* SadClown: His works are chock full of both wry humor and melancholy. Has an unhealthy obsession with suicide, and manages to work it into a story that also involve [[BestialityIsDepraved camel sex]].

* BigBeautifulWoman: One of thing we ''do'' know about Shiga? He likes his girls with some meat on their bones. It's rare for his comics to not feature at least one cute chubby lady.

!!Tropes common to many of Shiga's works include:
* AsianAndNerdy: His protagonists tend to be, perhaps as a consequence of [[AuthorAvatar being based on the man himself]].
* BigBeautifulWoman: One of thing we ''do'' know about Shiga? He likes his girls with some meat on their bones. It's rare for his comics to not feature at least one cute chubby lady.
* ReusedCharacterDesign: In the tradition of other great Asian cartoonists like OsamuTezuka, the characters in his comics are designed to appear as if they're actors playing different parts across different productions. For example, Sara from ''Empire State'', Sarah from ''Demon'', Finch from ''Bookhunter'' and Jackson's girlfriend from ''Double Happiness'', are all played by the same "actress".
* ShownTheirWork: Reading his work will teach you more than you ever thought you wanted to know about practical mathematics, library science, 1970s phone phreaking, Chinese-American culture and any number of other subjects.
* WritersCannotDoMath: Averted to hell and gone.

Jason Shiga is an independent author of {{comicbooks}} and {{newspaper comics}}. He generally draws his characters in a very cartoonish art style, which [[ArtStyleDissonance contrasts heavily]] with the serious (or at least mock-serious) and [[GrotesqueCute occasionally violent]] turns his stories take. Various puzzles also figure in his stories, as Shiga is a Mathematics major and fan of logical puzzles.

[[ReclusiveArtist Almost nothing else is known about him.]] Years can pass between updates to [[http://www.shigabooks.com his website]], and [[http://shiga.livejournal.com/ his weblog]] seems to have been abandoned since 2003.

He's republished most of his works on his website: http://www.shigabooks.com [[note]]However, the internal link to ''ComicBook/DoubleHappiness'' doesn't work because it's misspelled; [[http://www.shigabooks.com/books/double/d1.html this]] is the proper URL.[[/note]]
