Latest Comic Guest Announcement - Will Simpson

Attending: Saturday and Sunday

Storyboard artist: Game of Thrones

FOUR years after contributing to the first three issues of Ximoc – a comiczine launched in 1980 by fans in his native Belfast – Will Simpson began his professional career, drawing Big Ben for Warrior.

Work for 2000 AD, Toxic and a variety of Marvel UK titles swiftly followed until, in 1991, he was approached by DC/Vertigo to work on Hellblazer. Three years later, after a diversion to draw 1993’s Alien: Rogue four-parter for Dark Horse, he illustrated the first of three Vamps miniseries [1994, 1996 and 1998] for that DC mature readers imprint.

As the millennium headed towards its end, Simpson – whose association with 2000 AD concluded in 2001 – began winding down his comics work and turning his focus towards the movie industry. The Game of Thrones storyboard artist since 2011, his screen credits also include Reign of Fire [2002], City of Ember [2008] and Your Highness [2011].
