Interview by Steve J. Ray
Mark Buckingham is a fan-favorite, multiple Eisner Award winning British artist, who started working on strips for British satire magazine The Truth in 1987. This is where where he first worked with Neil Gaiman, creating illustrations for some of his articles. His American debut came in 1988, as inker on DC Comics Hellblazer, before he also took over as penciller from issue #18.
Mark has worked for many independent publishers, most notably on Marvelman (renamed Miracleman in the U.S.) taking over – with Neil Gaiman – from Alan Moore and John Totleben. For Marvel he’s inked Chris Bachalo’s pencils on Generation X, and pencilled Paul Jenkins’ run on Peter Parker: Spider-Man. His range and talent as an accomplished penciller, inker and writer has led him to become one of fandoms most beloved comics creators.
