British artist Dave Gibbons began his
comics career in 1973, when he started to contribute to the magazine
2000 A.D. by illustrating comics such as 'Harlem Heroes' and 'Rogue
Trooper'. In 1982, he began drawing the 'Green Lantern' series.
Artistic success came when he collaborated with Alan
Moore on the critically acclaimed 'Watchmen'
for D.C. comics in 1987. This book is a milestone in the re-evaluation
of comic superheroes. Besides publishing 'Watchmen', he also worked
together with Frank Miller on the
Martha Washington series ('Give Me Liberty', 'Martha Washington Goes
to War') and an alternative comic version of the Bible.
Dave Gibbons has recently taken to writing for comics, and has
completed such projects as 'Batman Versus Predator', illustrated by
Andy Kubert, and 'World's Finest', featuring Superman and Batman,
illustrated by Steve Rude. He has also done work with electronic
media, designing the world and characters used in the CD-ROM game
'Beneath a Steel Sky'.
