Matt Brooker is a polyonymous British comics artist, writer and colourist who won the 'Favourite Comics Artist: Inks' award at the Eagle Awards in 2008. He is also known as D'Israeli; D'Israeli D'Emon D'Raughtsman; Molly Eyre; Harry V. Derci and Digital Derci. His blog is here. D'Israeli has produced work for Revolver ('God's Little Acre'); A1; Blast! (Lazarus Churchyard); Vortex Comics (Mister X) and Tank Girl, and has inked five issues of Neil Gaiman's The Sandman.

For 2000 AD D'Israeli has worked on:

For the Judge Dredd Megazine he co-created Scarlet Traces (which moved to 2000 AD); XTNCT and Ordinary.

According to Ian Edginton, D'Israeli is "a genius. He can take a five-line panel description and turn it into something divine and extraordinary... To my mind D'Israeli has a place up there in the legendary pantheon of Kevin O'Neill, Mike McMahon and Cam Kennedy. He is what 2000 AD is all about." (Thrill-Power Overload by David Bishop.)


In the Stickleback episode of 2000 AD prog 1911, drawn by D'Israeli, prime minister Benjamin D'Israeli gets a barnstorming punch-the-air speech about how England will never give in to alien tyranny. This is slightly undermined when Queen Victoria interrupts in order to give in to alien tyranny.
