Guest Bio

Dave Gibbons established himself in underground comics and fanzines in
Britain before becoming a frequent contributor to the seminal 2000AD,
illustrating Harlem Heroes, Dan Dare and co-creating Rogue Trooper. Since
then, he has drawn and written for most comics publishers on both sides of
the Atlantic. His work has encompassed Dr Who, Superman, Batman, Green
Lantern, Captain America, Dr Strange, Hulk, Predator and Aliens. With writer
Frank Miller he co-created Give Me Liberty and Martha Washington Goes To
War. Watchmen, his collaboration with writer Alan Moore, is the best-selling
graphic novel ever published and became a major motion picture. His
autobiographical graphic novel The Originals won an Eisner Award. His recent
work has involved consultancy on motion books for the MADEFIRE app and other ground-breaking storytelling technologies.
