Simon Bisley

There is a legend that says that while still a student, Simon Bisley did a painting of a robot holding a baby, that he then sent to the offices of 2000 AD. The image was seen by Pat Mills, and it inspired him to relaunch the ABC Warriors strip, with Bisley as artist, in 1987.

Since then Simon has become hugely popular for his work on titles such as Lobo, Batman/Judge Dredd and Hellblazer, as well as ABC Warriors and Slaine. He’s worked for DC, Marvel, 2000AD and Heavy Metal Magazine among many others, as well as illustrating album covers, computer games, RPG games and movie posters.

His work also influenced the Beast in the Doctor Who episode The Satan Pit, and Simon Pegg’s graphic artist character Tim Bisley in the television series Spaced.
