Jim Siergey is an American cartoonist. With Tom Roberts, he created the long-running comic strip "Cultural Jet Lag" which appeared in many alternative press publications.
Cultural Jet Lag also appeared as a regular feature in Time magazine from 1997-2001. The strip also had a run as a regular feature in USA Weekend Sunday magazine.
Cultural Jet Lag dealt with high and low culture with no regard for time and space.
Fantagraphics Books published a "Cultural Jet Lag" comic book collection in 1991.
Siergey was also active in the mini-comic "newave" movement of the 1980s, known for his series of "nart" books that dealt with surrealism and puns. He is featured prominently in "Newave", a hardbound historical look and collection of comics from that period, also published by Fantagraphics.
As an animator, he worked on many commercials as well as educational and industrial films in the 1980s and 90s.
