John Royle

SINCE 2012 John Royle has been the regular penciller of IDW‘s various Danger Girl miniseries,  He kicked off with the five-issue Danger Girl/G.I. Joe  crossover – a great way to celebrate his two decades in the industry, which began in 1992 with a one-off contribution to Fleetway’s  Red Dwarf megazine . Rapidly he moved on to Marvel Uk and a run on Knights of Pendragon that took him into 1993 when he embarked on a variety of miniseries –  Death’s Head II and the Origin of Die Cut  and  Death Metal  among them – before The House of Ideas itself came calling. Royle worked for Marvel until 1996, his most high profile projects being Wolverine: Evilution  (a 1994 one-shot that he drew in collaboration with Mark Texeira) and Excalibur. Along the way he found time to illustrate a couple of  Rai  fill-ins for Valiant, Robin-Impluse for D.C Comics as well as work on a number of Malibu’s Ultraverse titles, among them Ultraforce,  Prime  and most notably The Phoenix Resurrection. His next work was for Marvel, primarily on 1997 issues of  Star Trek: Starfleet Academy, but he was only there for a year before outside demands for his talents forced him to retire from comics although only semi-permanently. After a seven-year break he resurfaced at Panini (Marvel UK as was) for which he contributed to multiple issues of Spectacular Spider-Man over the next seven years while also working on 18 of the first 19 issues of 2004’s  Marvel Rampage and being a major contributor to Stan Lee’s ‘Alexa’ a 2005 iBooks one-shot. Then came IDW and Danger Girl. John is also presently providing numerous cover for IDW’s G.I.JOE  Real American Hero.
