Lauded comic artist to develop exclusive digital project for new online story-store

SHEFFIELD - 9th January 2001

"By bringing together the best creators in the industry," says Nick Percival, Creative Director of Cool Beans World, "we give them the chance to do what they do best - create new worlds and characters that will engage you, scare you, thrill you and make you come back for more."

Simon Bisley is the latest big name to add his support to the digital storytelling Web site Cool Beans World. Bisley is remembered for the way that he revolutionised the comic book world with his energetic, uber-violent painted artwork style. Influencing a whole generation of comic book illustrators, he has inked for all the major comic book companies, including Marvel, DC, and Dark Horse. As a result, he has worked on a wide range of high profile pulp projects - ‘Judge Dredd Vs Batman’, ‘Slaine’, ‘Lobo’, ‘Heavy Metal F.A.K.K. 2’, ‘Death Dealer’ and many more. Such is the popularity of his artistic style, that his design work has also been featured heavily in a variety of Hollywood movies such as ‘Judge Dredd’, ‘Galaxy Quest’ and Stan Winston’s forthcoming remake of H.G Wells’ ‘The Time Machine’.

"Simon is creating a whole host of dynamic new characters and storylines," continues CBW Creative Director Nick Percival, "which will be featured exclusively on Cool Beans World. The first of these will be ‘DoomKeeper, a project that will showcase some of Simon’s best artwork to date. To realise the concept, Cool Beans is working closely with Bisley to create the extreme computer animated adventures of the central character and his world. Simon will be designing, painting and storyboarding the adventures and involved at all levels of the production of these computer-generated epics."
