Simon Bisley is a British comics artist who was born on March 4th 1962 and is not yet dead. He is best known for his work on the ABC Warriors (in fact, it was a piece of artwork that the art student Bisley sent in to 2000 AD on the off-chance that prompted writer Pat Mills to revive that strip with him as the artist) and Sláine in 2000 AD. Bisley has also drawn various stories featuring Batman and Lobo, amongst others, for America's DC Comics. These include, notably, Batman/Judge Dredd: Judgement on Gotham, for which he won an Eisner Award for Best Artist in 1992, and Judge Dredd/Lobo: Psycho Bikers vs the Mutants from Hell.

In addition, Bisley has worked on the Judge Dredd Megazine, Toxic!, Deadline and Heavy Metal as well as intermittently for various other British and American publishers including Atomeka Press, Marvel Comics, Full Circle, Image Comics, Acclaim Comics, Kitchen Sink Press, Berserker Comics, Dark Horse, Dynamite Entertainment and Verotik, as well as producing music album covers and art for computer game boxes and movie posters. He won the 1989 Eagle Award for Favourite Artist (UK) and has been nominated for several others.

Simon Bisley has had the dubious honour of having his name appropriated for a murdered journalist in an episode of BBC One's crime drama New Tricks, which also purely coincidentally featured characters named after several other comics creators including Bryan Hitch.
