Frank Quitely is the nom de plume of Vincent Deighan, a British comics artist who was born in 1968 in Glasgow and is not yet dead. He started off working for the underground comics magazine Electric Soup before drawing Missionary Man and Hondo City Law for the Judge Dredd Megazine. He is the co-creator of Shimura and of Aiko Inaba (pictured). Quitely is widely acclaimed for his jaw-droppingly good work for US publishing companies, including JLA: Earth 2 (written by Grant Morrison), WE3 (also by Morrison) and the Destiny story in The Sandman: Endless Nights (written by Neil Gaiman).
In London in 2011 Quitely helped to set two Guinness World Records, 'Fastest Production of a Comic Book' and 'Most Contributors to a Comic Book'.1
