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.


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]
