About The Authors

Perhaps the most widely respected comic writer of the modern era, Alan Moore’s contribution to the comics world is incalculable. Creator of some of 2000 AD’s most popular series, including Abelard Snazz, The Ballad of Halo Jones, D.R. & Quinch and Skizz, he has also worked on A.B.C. Warriors, Ro-Busters, Rogue Trooper, Ro-Jaws’ Robo-Tales, Tharg the Mighty, Time Twisters and several one-off strips. Outside of the Galaxy’s Greatest Comic, Moore is best known for his work on the classic Watchmen, which redefined the superhero genre in 1986, but this is simply touching the surface of a career which has included 1963, A1’s Warpsmiths, Bojeffries Saga and Maxwell the Magic Cat, AARGH!, Batman, Big Numbers, Brought to Light, Captain Britain, Deathblow, Flesh and Bones, From Hell, Glory, Green Lantern Corps, Lost Girls, Miracleman, A Small Killing, Snakes and Ladders, Spawn, Supreme, Swamp Thing, Superman , V For Vendetta, WildC.A.T.S. and Youngblood. Moore is now owner and chief writer of the America’s Best Comics line, distributed by WildStorm, and including Promethea, Tom Strong, Tomorrow Stories, Top Ten and The League of Extraordinary Gentlemen, which has been made into a major Hollywood movie.

One of 2000 AD’s best-loved and most honoured artists, Ian Gibson is responsible for the co-creation of The Ballad of Halo Jones (with Alan Moore), and created Bella Bagley, an unfortunate character in Judge Dredd’s world who fell head-over-heels in love with ‘Old Stoney Face’ himself! His work outside the Galaxy’s Greatest Comic includes Chronicles of Genghis Grimtoad, Star Wars: Boba Fett, X-Men Unlimited, plus the designs for the TV series Reboot.

Born in 1983, Barbara Nosenzo graduated in Forensic Chemistry before starting work in comics with the Italian independent author collective ‘La Compagnia del Fumetto’, collaborating on over 20 comic books as author or illustrator before specialising as a colourist. She is known for her work on the creator owned series The Ravenholme Chronicles with the author Andrea Broccardo. In 2010 she was selected by the talent scout and future Marvel E-i-C CB Cebulski in a portfolio review and quickly started working with Italian publishers such as Lo Scarabeo Tarots, and ManFont Comics and international publishers including Titan Comics. In 2017 Nosenzo was selected by 2000 AD to colour John Ridgeway’s cover for Summer Magic: The Complete Journal of Luke Kirby, which then led to her colour remastering of The Ballad of Halo Jones, Alan Moore and Ian Gibson’s scifi masterpiece. Currently Nosenzo is working on more 2000 AD projects, for US comics and on independent projects, as a digital and traditional colourist.
