Tony Moore is an American comic book artist, whose work consists mainly of genre pieces, most notably in horror and science fiction, with titles such as The Walking Dead, Fear Agent, and The Exterminators.
Moore was born in Lexington, Kentucky and was raised in the small town of Cynthiana, Kentucky. His single mother raised him and his younger brother with a good deal of help from her parents, who nurtured his love of drawing from a very early age.
In 7th grade History class, Moore met Robert Kirkman, who would later become a long-time partner in creating comics. Together, Moore and Kirkman launched the Funk-O-Tron small press publishing label in 2000, and its flagship title, Battle Pope. Moore studied drawing, painting, and printmaking at the University of Louisville while working on Battle Pope, though he left his studies before obtaining his degree to pursue his career as a comic book illustrator, when he and Kirkman were asked to produce work for the Mattel-licensed Masters of the Universe property. Shortly afterward, they launched Brit and The Walking Dead at Image Comics. Although Moore ceased regular interior artist duties onThe Walking Dead with #6, he continued to contribute to the title as cover artist through issue #24, and also illustrated the covers for the first four collected volumes of the series. Moore was nominated for two Eisner Awards for his work on The Walking Dead, (2004: "Best New Series", and 2005: Best Cover Artist.
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, and has contributed covers to numerous titles, including Claudio Sanchez's The Amory Wars and Rob Zombie's Spookshow International. He has also contributed to Marvel Comics' titles Ghost Rider (with Jason Aaron), and Punisher (with Rick Remender).
