The Blind Watchmaker

By I. N. J. Culbard

Ian Edginton is a British comics writer with a penchant for steampunk. His early work includes 'God's Little Acre' in Revolver and work for Dark Horse, Marvel, DC, Boom! Studios and other US publishing companies. For 2000 AD he has created or co-created:

Pictured is the Blind Watchmaker from Brass Sun, who accidentally destroyed the solar system and tried to make amends by using the materials to build a giant clockwork version. It sounds like the sort of thing Edginton would do: "It needs more cogs! Everything's better with cogs!"

He has also written Judge Dredd and Rogue Trooper for 2000 AD, and The Kleggs for the Judge Dredd Megazine. His continuation of H.G. Wells' War of the Worlds, entitled Scarlet Traces, has appeared in both 2000 AD and the Megazine. Plus he's scripted some Torchwood comics for Torchwood Magazine, and comics adaptations of The Picture Of Dorian Gray, four Sherlock Holmes stories and A Princess of Mars for SelfMadeHero, mostly with artist Ian "I.N.J." Culbard.
