Notable works

Shane Oakley is a British illustrator and comic book artist from Stoke-on-Trent, England.


He began his career contributing to the alternative comics review Deadline Magazine in the 1980s (where he created Fatal Charm with D'Israeli). In 1989 Shane worked as the penciller on issues 1 to 6 of Mister X volume two. Since then Shane has contributed to several anthology titles, such as Negative Burn and The Big Book of Urban Legends, even drawing an issue of Neil Gaiman's legendary Sandman.


Oakley is probably best known for his co-creation of the Wildstorm mini series Albion, with Alan Moore, Leah Moore, and John Reppion which ran from 2005 until 2006. The series revived many long forgotten UK comic book characters such as the Steel Claw and Grimly Feendish, some of whom had not been in print since the 1950s.

Recent work[edit]

Shane worked as a concept artist for Frazer Lee's horror film Urbane.

In 2007 he illustrated an adaptation of Edgar Allan Poe's "The Fall of the House of Usher" written by Dan Whitehead and published in Self Made Hero's Nevermore anthology.

Boom! Studios' Cthulhu Tales #2 (published April 2008) featured a story entitled The Hiding Place written by Steve Niles and illustrated by Oakley. Shane has also provided covers for several issues of Cthulhu Tales and Zombie Tales.

He is also providing the art for Channel Evil, written by Alan Grant and co-published by Berserker Comics and Renegade Arts Entertainment.[1]
