Great comic book artist – tick, lives in Scarborough – tick, has a keen eye for The Doctor – tick, it’s got to be the wonderful Richard Piers Rayner!

His most notable work is Road to Perdition, which was adapted into a film in 2002, starring Tom Hanks, and directed by Sam Mendes.

A gentleman and a scholar.
