Simon Coleby (born March 2, 1967) is a British comic book artist who has worked mainly for British sci-fi comic 2000 AD and Marvel Comics.


Coleby started his mainstream work in the British comics industry in 1987, working at both 2000 AD and Marvel UK. His first published work was a cover for issue #222 of the latter's Transformers comic, depicting Carnivac and Springer.[1] At 2000 AD he contributed heavily to Judge Dredd and Rogue Trooper spin-offs Friday and Venus Bluegenes,[2] 3 as well as becoming the lead artist on Low Life.[3]

After working with Christos Gage on "Midnighter: Armageddon", he is working on the post-World's End relaunch of The Authority[4] with writers Dan Abnett and Andy Lanning.[5] He will also be working on Wildstorm's adaptation of Fringe because, according to editor, Ben Abernathy, "Simon Coleby is so far ahead on 'Authority' he has time to contribute 11 pages a month."[6]

Abernathy, has said "Simon Coleby ... is definitely on the fast-track to becoming an 'elite' level artist."[5]
