Mark Farmer began his inking career working with Mike Collins in various fanzines before they both progressed to semi-regular work for Marvel UK and 2000AD.
He was invited by Dave Gibbons to help ink an issue or two of Green Lantern in 1983 and he has worked regularly for DC and Marvel ever since. He has worked in partnership with Alan Davis, surely the best storyteller working in comics today, on titles as diverse as JLA, Legion of Super-Heroes, Batman, Fantastic Four, Avengers and X-Men, for longer than he cares to remember.
He has been fortunate enough to work with some truly talented pencillers including Adam Hughes, Jose Luis Garcia Lopez, Gil Kane, Adam Kubert and Rags Morales.
Mark firmly believes his inks always look better in black and white and unless the colourist is exceptional comics are always diminished in the colouring process.
