Today in Comics History, March 26: Happy birthday, Brian Bolland!

Born on this day: Brian Bolland, British comics artist of Judge Dredd, Camelot 3000, Batman: The Killing Joke, Green Lantern, House of Hammer, Mr. Mamoulian and more, and about a gazillion comic book covers!

from Direct Currents #24 (DC, December 1989)

I'm not entirely certain this biography of Brian bolland is 100% accurate.

from Heartthrobs #1 (DC/Vertigo, January 1999)

Maybe this one is?

from Power Comics #3 (Eclipse, July 1988)

No Brian Bolland salute would be complete without the time he wrote and drew himself (and 2000 AD EIC Tharg the Mighty) into a Dredd strip:

"The Dredd End" from Judge Dredd Annual 1988 (Fleetway, September 1987); script, pencils, and inks by Brian Bolland; letters by Tom Frame

Happy Birthday, Brian!

A true gentlemen and a great talent.
I’m pretty sure I have other stuff he’s drawn himself into but it’s not tremendously accessible right now.
