History of Brian Bolland in Comic Book Art

Growing up in the United Kingdom during the 1960s and 70s, Brian was largely shielded from the comic book boom occurring in the USA.

Finding his love of comics by scouting street newsvendors, Brian was taken with DC Comics like Turok, Aquaman, Green Lantern, especially interested in the work of Carmine Infantino and Neal Adams.

Meeting future Watchmen artist Dave Gibbons, Brian found work with 2000 AD’s Judge Dredd and Walter the Wobot. After gaining the attention of DC Comics in 1980, Brian was hired to illustrate the covers for Green Lantern #127 and #130-#131.

From that point on, Brian has been one of DC’s most reliable artists. His most famous work is 1988’s Batman: The Killing Joke, written by Watchmen mastermind Allan Moore.

Today, Brian remains almost exclusive to DC, but he has illustrated a few covers for Marvel Comics and Vertigo.
