John Higgins left his home in Liverpool at the age of fifteen. He went to the Far East and studied art in Singapore. On his return to England, he started painting pictures but became disillusioned with commercialism. He entered Wallasey Art College where he studied illustration. In 1990, he found his calling in illustrating science-fiction covers. Two years later, he co-wrote and illustrated 'World Without End', a full-color graphic novel for DC Comics of America. He also worked on one of Britain's most popular comic book characters, 'Judge Dredd'. For DC, John Higgins did several horror titles, such as 'Razorjack' and 'Hellblazer'.

Series and books by John Higgins in stock in the Lambiek Webshop:
Since 1999, Lambiek presents the Comiclopedia as a free service to comic fans from all over the world. The database has expanded to over
12,000 biographies of international comic artists, and also has an extensive Dutch section about comics in the Netherlands.
For 15 years, the site was funded from the resources of our Amsterdam-based shop. However, the current economical circumstances make it difficult for us to maintain this service. At the moment the Comiclopedia's sole editor works for us free of charge, aided by a couple of (international) volunteers.
