It just wouldn’t be Sci-Fi Scarborough without Richard Piers-Rayner, an accomplished comic book artist who lives local to SFS and is quite brilliant!
Richard began his professional comic career in 1988, illustrating for DC Comics and Marvel Comics. His works include Hellblazer, Swamp Thing, L.E.G.I.O.N., Doctor Fate, and Doctor Who. His most notable work is Road to Perdition, which was adapted into a film in 2002, starring Tom Hanks, and directed by Sam Mendes.
He is also a frequent contributor to the DC publications, Paradox Press, and is artist in residence at Middlesbrough FC. In November 2008 he wrote and illustrated Middlesbrough FC – The Unseen History.
He is currently working on a major new project that will be announced in this year and recently also contributed to the DC hardback Hellblazer 30th Anniversary book.
