One of comics’ rock ‘n’ roll superstars, Simon Bisley’s incredible artwork changed the industry forever in the late 1980s with his work on Slaine: The Horned God and Judge Dredd, producing a myriad imitators and launching a decade-long fad for painted comics art.
We round off our coverage of the 2000 AD panels at San Diego Comic Con 2018 with a recording of the ‘Spotlight on Simon Bisley’ panel as 2000 AD publicity droid Mike Molcher sits down with Simon in front of a live audience to discuss his work, career, and philosophy.
A unique and irrepressible talent, Simon’s work has reached far beyond the page to influence mainstream culture, and while he has always evolved, his style remains timelessly recognizable.
