Michael Coulthard is a British writer and psychedelic artist who best known for his work as a comic and graphic artist under the pseudonym Shaky Kane, as well as Shaky 2000.


After working for independent comics and magazines like Deadline in the 1980s, Shaky moved to the mainstream with work on 2000 AD and its sister title, the Judge Dredd Megazine in the 1990s. With editor David Bishop, he created the Soul Sisters, and he also contributed to the Judge Dredd strip, among others.

Shaky's style is heavily influenced by Silver Age American comic books (especially the style of Jack Kirby), with a psychedelic twist.[1]

He also provided the art for The Bulletproof Coffin with writer David Hine[2] for Image Comics, which is where he has published his recent projects.
