Bill Willingham (born December 1956 in Fort Belvoir, Virginia) is an American writer and artist of comics.

Biography

Willingham got his start in the late 1970s to early 1980s as a staff artist for TSR, where he illustrated a number of their role-playing game products. He first gained attention for his 1980s comic book series "Elementals" published by Comico, which he both wrote and drew, however the series had trouble maintaining a consistent schedule, and Willingham's position in the industry remained spotty for many years. He contributed stories to "Green Lantern" and started his own independent, black-and-white comic book series "Coventry" which lasted only 3 issues. He also produced the pornographic series "Ironwood" for Eros Comix.

In the late 1990s, Willingham reestablished himself as a prolific writer. He produced the 13-issue "Pantheon" for Lone Star Press and wrote a pair of short novels about the modern adventures of the hero Beowulf, and a fantasy novel "Down the Mysterly River" published by the writer's collective, Clockwork Storybook, of which Willingham was a founding member. In the early 2000s, he began writing extensively for DC Comics, including the limited series "Proposition Player", a pair of limited series about the Greek witch Thessaly from "The Sandman", and most notably the popular series "Fables".Citation | last = Irvine | first = Alex | author-link = Alexander C.

Willingham worked on the "Robin" series from 2004 to 2006, and established "Shadowpact", a title spun off his "Day of Vengeance" limited series. He is currently writing "Jack of Fables", an ongoing spin-off of his Fables series, co-written by Matthew Sturges. At the 2007 Comic Con International, he announced that he would be writing "Salvation Run", a mini-series about supervillains who are banished to an inhospitable prison planet.
