Steve Dillon is a British comic book artist. Steve Dillon first realised his potential as a serious comic book artist during the production of a school comic book called "Sci Fi Adventures" with school friends Neil Bailey & Paul Mahon in 1975. Dillon's first strip in this comic was "The Space Vampire". This was followed by the "Escape From The Planet of the Apes" series which was drawn to an increasingly high standard well beyond his years. Dillon got his first break at the age of 16 working for Marvel UK, later working on the Hulk and Nick Fury titles. In the 1980s he also drew for Warrior and Doctor Who Magazine, where he created the character of Absalom Daak. He did a considerable amount of work for the comic 2000 AD, much of it with Alan Moore.
Together with author Garth Ennis, Dillon worked on Hellblazer and, later, on the very successful (and critically acclaimed) Preacher which wrapped up in 2000 after 66 issues. He is particularly well regarded for his expressive faces and clear storytelling technique.
