Gibbons is best known for his collaborations with writer Alan Moore, which include the miniseries Watchmen and the Superman story “For the Man Who Has Everything”. He was an artist for 2000 AD, for which he contributed a large body of work from its first issue in 1977. He has worked for Marvel, DC, Vertigo, Dark Horse and more.
He became the lead artist for the Doctor Who comics in 1979, illustrating the comic strips from 1-69, only missing 4 issues during this time. These strips were later reprinted by Marvel in the US monthly comic of Doctor Who, for which Gibbons also illustrated the covers.
