== Biography ==
Andy Clarke started his career in the series Sinister Dexter in the anthology 2000 AD, becoming one of the main artists on the story between 1998  and 2004. While working there he would also work on some of the anthology's other flagship titles, like Judge Dredd and Nikolai Dante, and one-off stories like Thirteen and  Snow/Tiger.
He started work for American company DC Comics in 2005 on a number of stories in titles like Aquaman and Detective Comics. In 2008 he has worked on the Two-Face issue of The Joker's Asylum written by David Hine and then, year later, became the main artist on the R.E.B.E.L.S. ongoing series with writer Tony Bedard who has said that Clarke is "the greatest artist I've worked with in a dog's age ... A lot of people are going to be floored when they see his stuff. He's so meticulous with the details and rendering. He reminds me of Brian Bolland and Kevin Maguire and Frank Quitely all rolled into one." Although the writing of the series got a mixed reception Clarke's art was praised, with Comics Bulletin review of the first issue suggesting his "pencils take the detailed future grit of Barry Kitson's Legion of Superheroes and mix it with a heavy dose of Frank Quitely's work on All-Star Superman" and the one at Comic Book Resources picking up on similar themes, saying he was "providing a kind of Barry Kitson stillness combined with a Seth Fisher-esque attention to detail."Following an arc on Batman Confidential with Peter Milligan, he was confirmed as the next artist for Batman and Robin after Cameron Stewart.
