Chris Weston is a British comic artist who has worked both in the US and UK comics industries.
He was born in Germany and lived in various countries as a child. Growing up without television, the artist says, affected his future career. "My primary source of entertainment? You guessed it: comics! British comics, at that! Lion, Valiant, Bullet, Victor, Hotspur, Buster, War Picture Library, Action.... us "army brats" read them all! And what's more we'd discuss them for hours; the characters, the stories and the art in particular", he says on his official website.
Weston's career began when he was apprenticed for a year to work with Don Lawrence, by the end of which he had secured paid work on the major British strip Judge Dredd.
He worked with writer John Smith on the ten-part Indigo Prime story, "Killing Time" in which characters battled Jack the Ripper aboard a time travelling train.
Weston's work in America began with on Swamp Thing during Mark Millar's time as scriptwriter. He has since gone on to be published in The Invisibles, Starman, JSA, Lucifer, and The Authority.
He has also worked on The Filth and Ministry of Space. The former a creator-owned written by Grant Morrison, the latter a "what if?" limited series written by Warren Ellis which saw Britain winning the Space Race.
