Katie Houghton-Ward

Katie Houghton-Ward has been working in the comic book industry, both in Australia and internationally, for more than twenty years.

Katie started her comic career with the acclaimed creator-owned series Deckheadz which was a weekly feature in top music magazine 3D World for five years, she then went on to integrate her sequential work into fine and street art, showing all over the world. She got her first international break on Doug Paszkiewicz’s Arsenic Lullaby and continued her working relationship with Paszkiewicz on the Laughter of the Damned trilogy.

Her creator-owned fantasy series KHULAN was serialised in internationally renowned HEAVY METAL magazine before being collected in a remastered edition by Gestalt. Feeling right at home amongst swords and sorcery, Katie illustrated a story for the TALGARD series before bringing her artistry to the INDIGIVERSE, an Aboriginal superhero universe.

Having completed the first three issues of DARK HEART, the flagship title in the INDIGIVERSE, Katie is currently hard at work on the third issue while overseeing the final production on her new KHULAN graphic novel, featuring cover art by fan-favourite Simon Bisley.
