Biography

Walker began his career in 1987 working on Future Shocks in 2000 AD, and followed this up with work on some of the anthology comic’s most popular long-running stories, including Judge Dredd, Rogue Trooper (inking Steve Dillon’s pencils), the ABC Warriors and Judge Anderson. Originally known for his glossy, painted style and the fine detail of his inked work, Walker has since 1998 changed the way he works, using a high contrast black line style with heavy shadows coupled with flat computer colouring, reminiscent of the work of Mike Mignola. In 2005, Walker was commissioned by design agency ODD to draw the character of a 13-year old James Bond for Charlie Higson's first Young Bond novel SilverFin. He also illustrated a graphic novel adaptation of SilverFin in 2008, and provided cover art for the Young Bond novels released in the U.S. by Hyperion Books.

In April 2006, he tenured Marvel Comics' cosmic crossever event, the Annihilation with Dan Abnett and Andy Lanning plotting Nova, one of its four lead-ins.

Walker provided the the third instalment of the Marvel Zombies series, with writer Fred Van Lente[1] and the creative team stayed together for Marvel Zombies 4.[2]
