Weston's work in America began with on Swamp Thing during Mark Millar's time as scriptwriter. He has since gone on to be published in The Invisibles,[1] Starman, JSA, Lucifer, and The Authority.

He has also worked on The Filth and Ministry of Space. The former a creator-owned written by Grant Morrison, the latter a "what if?" limited series written by Warren Ellis which saw Britain winning the Space Race.[2]

Most recently he has provided the art for Fantastic Four: First Family.

In 2008 Weston illustrated The Twelve, a twelve-issue limited series written J. Michael Straczynski.[3][4] The series will involve a team formed from Timely Comics characters including The Witness, The Black Widow and Elektro.[5]
