He created Battle (with John Wagner), Action, Misty and 2000 AD (featuring Judge Dredd). Other notable works include Marshal Law, Third World War in Crisis, the title series for Doctor Who Weekly and Requiem Vampire Knight. He has also recently written several books including Be Pure! Be Vigilant! Behave!, a history of 2000 AD and Serial Killer with artist Kevin O’ Neill, a darkly comedic thriller.
