Career

Jock began his professional career at 2000 AD, on series including Judge Dredd and Lenny Zero, the latter with writer Andy Diggle.[2]

It was with Diggle that he got his big break in the American comic book market at DC Comics and their Vertigo imprint, working on The Losers[3] and Green Arrow: Year One.[4][5] Also at Vertigo and with Mike Carey, another former 2000 AD writer, Jock worked on an issue of Hellblazer and the Faker limited series,[6] returning the character John Constantine in the graphic novel Hellblazer: Pandemonium with Jamie Delano.[7] Following his run on Green Arrow he got more work on main DC universe titles, in particular two storylines on Detective Comics, the first featuring Batwoman and the second Batman.[8]

The movie adaptation of The Losers opened worldwide in April 2010.

Movie Work

Jock has contributed concept paintings and key art to a number of film productions and promotional campaigns. These include Hancock, Battleship, the forthcoming Dune adaptation, Children of Men, Dredd and Batman Begins.
