Dave Taylor is a British comic book creator. He is best known for his work on Force Works, as well as Batman and Judge Dredd stories.

Biography[edit]

Taylor was born in Liverpool in 1964 and attended the Liverpool Arts School.[1]

He got a job at Marvel UK in 1990, before entering the US comics field in 1994.[1] There he worked on Marvel's Force Works and various DC Batman comics.[2]

Taylor became disillusioned with the American comic book-making process as deadlines were squeezed and he was forced to take on an inker. He was eventually told he would never work in comics again and took a break following a double hernia. He returned to comics thanks to Peter Doherty's reminder that he has always wanted to work on Judge Dredd, and he has been Dredd-related stories for 2000 AD.[3] He has also drawn Doctor Who comics for Titan Comics, and is drawing the first comics to feature Peter Capaldi's Twelfth Doctor.[4]

Taylor describes his influences as "Victorian artwork and turn-of-century artwork, then Moebius, and some Italian and Spanish illustrators. And then of course there are the 2000AD artists, like Esquerra, Mike McMahon and Brian Bolland."[3]
