Dave Gibbons

Artist, Watchmen, Give Me Liberty

Dave Gibbons, one of the Special Guests at Comic-Con 2011, has worked in comics since 1973.

Cutting his teeth on undergrounds and fanzines, he became a frequent contributor to Britain's 2000AD, illustrating "Harlem Heroes" and "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, Predator, Aliens, the award-winning Watchmen with writer Alan Moore, and Give Me Liberty and Martha Washington Goes to War with Frank Miller. His semi-autobiographical The Originals won an Eisner Award in 2005.

His recent work has involved consultancy on motion comics and game design.
