Discovering his love of comics through reading The Eagle, JOHN STOKES would later join his brother George at IPC, where he worked on several strips for Buster including, Maxwell Hawke, Lennie the loner and no less than three strips that were written by Scott Goodall – The War Children, Fishboy and Marney the Fox.

In the seventies he moved to Marvel UK and worked on The House of Hammer, Black Knight in Hulk Weekly, Doctor Who Monthly and Star Wars amongst others (he collaborated with Alan Moore several times in the latter two titles).

As well as illustrating several Future Shocks in 2000 AD, Stokes has worked on many US comics, including L.E.G.I.O.N., Aliens: Havoc, Randy Bowen’s Decapitator and The Invisibles.
