Alec Worley

Alec Worley writes comics for 2000 AD, Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles, Star Wars and others. (And no, he doesn't draw the pictures.) He also writes fiction.

He spent several years as a projectionist in the picture palaces and fleapits of London's West End, before jacking it all in to become a movie journalist writing for Sight & Sound, Empire, Total Film, SFX, and others. In 2005 he published the book, Empires of the Imagination: A Critical Survey of Fantasy Cinema from Georges Méliès to The Lord of the Rings.

Alec got into comics through the slush pile at 2000 AD for whom he went on to write for classic characters Judge Dredd, Judge Anderson, and Robo-Hunter, as well as create two original series: paranormal comedy Dandridge (with artist Warren Pleece) and urban fantasy saga Age of the Wolf (with artist Jon Davis-Hunt). He writes Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles and Star Wars for younger readers, as well as Realm of the Damned, a series of horror graphic novels most definitely for grown-ups.

Fiction-wise, he's written a popular trilogy about the early adventures of Judge Anderson, 2000 AD's premier psychic law enforcer. He also writes for Games Workshop/Black Library's Warhammer 40,000 series.

Alec lives in London.
