From Wikipedia, the free Encyclopedia

Philip Bond is a British comic book artist, who first came to prominence in the late 1980's via a self-published fanzine, Atomtan, created with Alan Martin, Jamie Hewlett, Luke Whitney and Jane Oliver.

Bond's talent for comical, exaggerated anatomy and poses quickly lead to professional work, mostly for now-defunct title Deadline, on strips such as Wired World. In 1990, he illustrated (and co-created) the Garth Ennis-scripted comedy series Time Flies for the leading British science-fiction comic, 2000 AD. In 1995, Bond was involved in the hype surrounding the release of the Tank Girl movie, illustrating a number of new Tank Girl strips for various publications. An increasing Stateside profile lead to a number of successful collaborations with fellow Brits Grant Morrison and Alan Grant under the DC Comics' imprint Vertigo, including the one shot Kill Your Boyfriend and several issues of The Invisibles. Over his career Bond has also illustrated comic strips for bands including the Smashing Pumpkins and Sum 41.

Bond continues to work mostly in the United States, most recently producing Vimanarama with author Grant Morrison.
