Simon Bisley is a British comic book artist best known for his 1990s work on ABC Warriors, Lobo, and Slaine. His style, reliant on paints as well as inks, was strongly

influenced by Frank Frazetta and Bill Sienkiewicz, and took inspiration from rock album covers and graffiti, as well as traditional comics art. While still a student, Bisley did a painting of a robot holding a baby that a friend passed to Pat Mills, and inspired Mills to relaunch the ABC Warriors strip in 2000AD, with Bisley as artist, in 1987. Other noteworthy contributions include regular contributions to Heavy Metal, and he has recently done covers for Factory from Titan Comics,Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles: Bodycount from IDW Publishing, and Harley's Little Black Book from DC Comics.
