Ian Gibson (born 1946) is a British comic book artist, best known for his 1980s black-and-white work for 2000 AD, especially as the main artist on Robo-Hunter and The Ballad of Halo Jones, as well as his long run on Judge Dredd.


His imaginative cartoonish, and intricately detailed style (especially in black and white strips) lends itself best to humorous strips, such as Robo-Hunter and Ace Trucking Co., although his work on the Alan Moore-penned The Ballad of Halo Jones shows that he is capable of telling a serious story.

In the US, Gibson made a good name for himself drawing Mister Miracle for DC Comics in the 1980s. Subsequently he started work on Meta 4, an innovative science fiction/superhero comic written by Stefan Petrucha. This series was cut short when publisher First Comics went out of business.

Since 2000, Gibson has mostly been occupied drawing Judge Dredd and the revived Robo-Hunter series starring Sam Slade's daughter, Samantha.

He also regularly contributes articles and rants to the Den of Geek website about the state of today's comics industry.
