John Bolton is a British comic book cover painter who has worked on numerous Aliens and Aliens vs. Predator projects for Dark Horse Comics, starting with the third series Aliens: Earth War
In the later 1990s, Bolton was chosen to be cover-artist for the re-release of every Aliens trade paperback to date at the time for the new "Remastered Aliens Library Edition" series.
Extremely critically acclaimed, Bolton's high quality, rich, dark, painted covers have come to be as synonymous with Dark Horse's comics as other of the company's regular cover artists such as Dave Dorman and Arthur Suydam.
Bolton was also the subject of the documentary film In Search of the Artist John Bolton.
