SIMON BISLEY

Simon Bisley is a British artist who got his start, like so many British comic artists do, in the pages of 2000 A.D., a sci-fi anthology. His realistic/cartoony style, influenced by Frank Frazetta and Bill Sienkiewicz, made him a fan-favorite on the ABC Warriors and Slaine: The Horned God strips that first gained him attention. He first came to the attention of American comic readers with his work on Lobo, in partnership with Scottish writer Alan Grant. The pair also collaborated on the one-shot Batman/Judge Dredd: Judgement On Gotham, which saw The Dark Knight Detective team up with Mega City One’s baddest-assed cop to take down the dangerous duo of The Joker and Judge Death.

Also, he drew this cover about the time Batman met Predator for the second time:

Also of note is this hilariously arbitrary Elseworlds one-shot he did with Grant, Batman/Lobo. A personal favorite of Matt Goode.

Bisley also contributed art to a story written by Neil Gaiman that appeared in the Batman: Black & White miniseries, which also spawned a statue based on his Batman design.

So, Simon Bisley: a great Batman artist, and he drums in a metal band and can kick your ass.

  1. this guy is extreme!

  2. Thank you for doing Bisley so quickly.

    And to Allison: “this guy”? This is Simon Fucking Bisley!

  3. PS – It’s true that Batman/Lobo is an awesome Elseworlds. It has all the necessary ingredients: Alfred Pennyworth is the commissioner, James Gordon is a butler, Robin dies, Nightwing dies, everyone fucking dies.

  4. BIZ IS KING
