Adlard, Charlie

Charles "Charlie" Adlard (born 1966) is a British comic book artist and penciller, best known for providing art on The Walking Dead and Savage. Adlard began his work in the UK on White Death with Robbie Morrison and 2000 AD series including Judge Dredd, and Armitage. He has continued working for them with the series Savage. In the United States he is best known for his work on The X-Files (for Topps), Astronauts in Trouble (for AiT/Planet Lar) and The Walking Dead (for Image Comics). He is currently the regular penciller on The Walking Dead. Other work includes: Mars Attacks! (also for Topps); The Hellfire Club and Warlock for Marvel Comics; Batman: Gotham Knights and Green Lantern / Green Arrow for DC Comics; White Death for Les Cartoonistes Dangereux; Blair Witch: Dark Testaments and Codeflesh for Image; Shadowman for Acclaim Comics; and The Establishment for Wildstorm, amongst many others. Adlard's style has evolved from what was originally fully painted artwork on Armitage, through increasing confidence as a monochrome artist, to his recent work, which uses large blocks of black ink on the page to create shadow effects much more bold than are commonly seen in comics art. He has received recognition for his work, including a nomination for the Squiddy Award for Best Inker in 2001. He illustrated a graphic novel, Playing the Game, written by Nobel Prize winner Doris Lessing.
