Guest: Mike Collins
Mike Collins is best known as the key artist on the Doctor Who Magazine comic strip, taking over the reins with the TV show’s triumphant return for an unbroken run of several years; he still draws the flagship strip, alternating with Martin Geraghty. Mike illustrated two successful BBC original Doctor Who graphic novels, and has drawn for the US IDW Doctor Who comic book series.
Creating comics for over 25 years, he has worked for Marvel, DC, 2000AD and a whole host of other publishers. In that time he’s written or drawn pretty much all the major characters - Wonder Woman, Batman, Superman, Flash, Teen Titans, X-Men, Captain Britain, Judge Dredd, Darkstars, Peter Cannon: Thunderbolt and more. He currently draws a series of noir crime fiction graphic novels - Varg Veum - in Norse.
Mike is committed to using comics as an educational tool, running workshops in schools and libraries throughout Wales, targeting ‘reluctant learners’ and was heavily involved in the Read A Million Words In Wales initiative.
