  Summary  

November 2011

Colin Wilson is a comic book artist, born in Christchurch, New Zealand on 31 October 1949.

He is known for his detailed artwork which he uses in 2000 AD stories like Rogue Trooper and Judge Dredd. According to Andy Diggle, the 2000 AD editor who got him back to the title in the late nineties and has worked with him since, "no one ... draws near-future military hardware like him".

Wilson has also had success in the French comics field, working on his own title Dans l'Ombre du Soleil, as well as having runs on well-established titles, like Blueberry. David Bishop, another 2000 AD editor says that Wilson is "a true rarity, a comics artist whose work has been acclaimed in America, Britain and most especially in Europe."

Wilson received his formal training as an artist at Christchurch School of Art in 1967-1968. Working as an illustrator, he started his own fanzine,Strips in 1977. Originally meant as a showcase for Wilson's own comics, Strips soon hosted many New Zealand comics and revived the New Zealand comic scene.

In 1997, he moved to Australia, but continued his work for Europe and 2000 AD.

He's mostly known for his work on La Jeunesse de Blueberry, his solo series Dans L'Ombre du Soleil. His most famous works in the US are Point Blank, written by Ed Brubaker and Star Wars: Invasion, written by Tom Taylor.

On 14 October 2008, Variety reported that Headshot, written by Matz and illustrated by Colin Wilson, had been acquired by Warner Brothers.
