Simon Coleby (born 2 March 1967) is a British comic book artist who has worked mainly for British sci-fi comic 2000 AD and Marvel Comics.

Biography[edit]

Coleby started his mainstream work in the British comics industry in 1987, working at both 2000 AD and Marvel UK. His first published work was a cover for issue #222 of the latter's Transformers comic, depicting Carnivac and Springer.[1] At 2000 AD he contributed heavily to Judge Dredd and Rogue Trooper spin-offs Friday and Venus Bluegenes,[2] 3 as well as becoming the lead artist on Low Life.[3]

After working with Christos Gage on "Midnighter: Armageddon", he is working on the post-World's End relaunch of The Authority[4] with writers Dan Abnett and Andy Lanning.[5] He will also be working on Wildstorm's adaptation of Fringe because, according to editor, Ben Abernathy, "Simon Coleby is so far ahead on 'Authority' he has time to contribute 11 pages a month."[6]

Abernathy, has said "Simon Coleby ... is definitely on the fast-track to becoming an 'elite' level artist."[5]
