Since 2012, John Royle has been the regular penciller of IDW's various Danger Girl miniseries. He kicked off with the five-issue Danger Girl/G.I. Joe crossover – a great way to celebrate his two decades in the industry, which began in 1992 with a one-off contribution to Fleetway’s Red Dwarf megazine. Rapidly, he moved on to Marvel UK and a run on Knights of Pendragon that took him into 1993 when he embarked on a variety of miniseries – Death’s Head II and the Origin of Die Cut and Death Metal among them – before The House of Ideas itself came calling. Royle worked for Marvel until 1996, his most high profile projects being Wolverine: Evilution (a 1994 one-shot that he drew in collaboration with Mark Texeira) and Excalibur. After a seven-year break he resurfaced at Panini (Marvel UK as was) for which he contributed to multiple issues of Spectacular Spider-Man over the next seven years while also working on 18 of the first 19 issues of 2004’s Marvel Rampage and being a major contributor to Stan Lee’s ‘Alexa’, a 2005 iBooks one-shot. Then came IDW and Danger Girl. John is also presently providing numerous cover for IDW’s G.I. Joe.
