John Bolton (born May 23, 1951) is a British comic book artist who has worked on several comic books in Dark Horse Comics' Aliens and Aliens vs. Predator lines. He is the husband of Liliana Bolton, who ran Dark Horse International in the 1990s.
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. In the mid-1990s, Bolton was chosen to be cover artist for the re-release of every Aliens trade paperback to date at the time, as part of the "remastered" Aliens Library Edition series. Bolton was also the subject of the 2003 documentary film A Short Film About John Bolton.
