John's Story

Comic books are serious business. They dominate Hollywood box offices, win Pulitzer prizes and you can even study them at University. The people involved in this field are among the most talented painters and illustrators working in the visual arts today.

Artist and writer John Higgins was just a boy when he first crossed paths with comics.

Little did he know then the impact they’d have on his life and career.  John would go on to work on two of the biggest graphic novels of all time – Watchmen and The Killing Joke – as well as the iconic British comic character Judge Dredd.
