AFTER working for The Who's Pete Townsend as commissioning editor for Eel Pie Publishing, Peter Hogan wound up at Quality Comics, where he served as an editor on the UK-based label's line of 2000 AD reprints aimed at the US market. That was during the mid-to-late '80s after which he moved on to Fleetway.


There, after working on 1989's 2000 AD Winter Special, he became editor ofRevolver, editing all seven issues of the experimental title as well as the two specials the 1990 comic spawned. Two years later, Hogan (who had also been working as a music journalist) began writing scripts for 2000 AD with his first stories appearing2000 AD Sci-Fi Special 1992 and 2000 AD Action Special before he began contributing to the self-styled Galaxy's Great Comic itself.


Debuting on Prog 793, he wrote regularly for the weekly anthology until late 1995.

In 1996 he was hired by Vertigo (DC's mature readers imprint) to write a four-issue run on The Dreaming. After a smattering of other issues of that title Hogan embarked on 1999's The Sandman Presents: Love Street before authoring his one and only Marvel project, the Captain America/Nick Fury: The Otherworld War one-shot, two years later.


Subsequently he was brought in by Alan Moore to contribute to the famed British writer's America's Best Comics line, which was published by DC under its Wildstorm umbrella. Hogan scripted two Terra Obscura six-parters (in 2003 and 2004) as well as the six issues of 2010's Tom Strong and the Robots of Doom and of 2013'sTom Strong and the Planet of Peril.


In 2011, after a three-part prelude in the Dark Horse Presents anthology. the writer unveiled Resident Alien, a 2012 three-parter. Two further three-issue DHP serials followed, the first leading into 2013's Resident Alien: The Suicide Blonde three-parter and the second a prelude to the three issues of Resident Alien: The Sam Hain Mystery which came along two years later.


Hogan's most recent project is The King's Road, a 2016 three-parter that began life as a three-issue DHP serial three years before.
