Neil Googe is a British comics artist.

Biography[edit]

Googe's early comics work include a Shotgun Mary mini-series and work on 2000 AD, including a number of Judge Dredd stories.

He was one of the co-founders of the British independent comic publisher Com.x in 2000, where he wrote and drew Bazooka Jules and although only three issues were published Googe says he still has ideas for many more. However, since then he had steady work in the American comic book market since and the opportunity has never arisen.[1]

In the American market he is known for his work on Welcome to Tranquility with Gail Simone for Wildstorm[2] where he'd previously worked on Majestic.[1] Following this he worked with Christos Gage on Wildcats: World's End.[3] and then with Mike Costa on the World of Warcraft hard back graphic novel Dark Riders which was released by DC Comics after the Wildstorm merge.

After this Neil continued working with DC Comics, lending his hand more to one shot issues like Rose and Thorn, the recent Detective Comics Harley Quinn #1 issue, the Legends of the Dark Knight Harley Quinn issue and most recently The Flash. Also returning to 2000 AD to work on Survival Geeks written by Gordon Rennie and Emma Beeby

Coming almost full circle, Neil is currently working on a creator owned project entitled Welcome to the Hood, to be launched as a pen and paper Role Playing Game and also an accompanying comic. As well as finally relaunching Bazooka Jules under the name of Bazooka Jules: Tales from Caliber Bay, though he has said this will be as a world setting for existing Role Playing Games systems with supplementary short stories in comic format. He is also working on a number of other table top and RPG products, including an as yet unnamed 3rd party Pathfinder supplement.

He has said that he will still be doing regular comic work alongside his other projects.
