Dave Gibbons - UK
Gibbons is a graphic novels writer and illustrator, born in London in 1949.
He broke into British comics by working on horror and action titles for both DC Thomson and IPC during the late 1970s, and he joined ‘2000 AD’ as an Art Director.
After leaving 2000AD, Gibbons became the lead artist on Doctor Who Weekly/Monthly, drawing the main comic strip for most of the issues, and was hired in 1982 to draw Green Lantern for the American DC imprint.
He is best known in the US for collaborating with Alan Moore on the 12-issue limited series Watchmen (1986-7) now one of the best-selling graphic novels of all time, and for his collaborations with Frank Miller on Give Me Liberty (1990)
Gibbons’ most recent complete works are a black and white graphic novel, The Originals (2005), a futuristic treatment of the Mods and Rockers wars of the 1960s and ongoing comic work, including the Albion spin-off Thunderbolt Jaxon (April–Sept. 2006), with art by John Higgins; a Kamandi serial for Wednesday Comics with Ryan Sook in 2009 and Tales of the Sinestro Corps, also in 2009.
In 2015 he was appointed the UK’s first ‘comics laureate’ to champion the use of graphic novels in promoting literacy.
