His groundbreaking comics of the early 80s as part of ‘The British Invasion’ paved the way for comics’ increasing popularity in Hollywood in more recent times. He was also one of the pioneers of computer animation, creating the visuals for the 90s computer animated TV series ReBoot, the first long-form digital narrative that preceded Pixar and Dreamworks’ later success. He has spent more than 20 years working in Hollywood, and is the co-writer and a designer on the upcoming and eagerly anticipated, Mad Max Fury Road. Brendan is currently writing and drawing his new graphic novel Dream Gang, which is being serialised in the US.
