Tony Moore’s work consists mainly of genre pieces, notably in horror and science-fiction.
He has worked on titles such as Fear Agent, The Exterminators, and most notably, the first six issues of The Walking Dead.
Moore studied drawing, painting and printmaking at the University of Louisville while working on Battle Pope. He left his studies to pursue his career as a comic book illustrator when he and writer Robert Kirkman were asked to produce work for the Mattel-licensed Masters of the Universe. Shortly afterward, they launched Brit and The Walking Dead at Image Comics.
Moore ceased regular interior artist duties on The Walking Dead with No. 6, but continued to contribute to the title as cover artist through No. 24. He also illustrated the covers for the series’ first four collected volumes.
Moore was nominated for two Eisner Awards for his work on The Walking Dead. And in a March 2013 episode of the VH1 reality television series For What It’s Worth, Moore’s original artwork for Page 7 of The Walking Dead #1 was appraised at $20,000.
Moore has since moved on to his own co-created properties: The Exterminators with Simon Oliver at DC/Vertigo, and Fear Agent with Rick Remender at Dark Horse Comics.
He has contributed covers to numerous titles, including Claudio Sanchez’s The Amory Wars, and Rob Zombie’s Spookshow International.
Moore contributed to Marvel Comics’ Ghost Rider with Jason Aaron, and Punisher with Remender. He also was the artist for the Venom series from 2010 to 2012, written by Remender.
