Clayton Henry is a comic book artist, known mostly for his work for Marvel Comics. His first known works were providing the art on Nine Rings Of Wu-Tang and Area 52, and has since worked on such series as Exiles, Alpha Flight, New X-Men: Hellions, X-Men: Apocalypse vs. Dracula, and currently Uncanny X-Men.
Born in Mandeville, Jamaica, Henry moved to the U.S. when he was three. His father, an artist himself amazed Clayton with a picture of a car he saw him draw. He began drawing at 4 and at age 9 he was drawn into the world of comics with a copy of Uncanny X-Men #201. He attended art schools from 4th grade through 12th grade and much of college.
After a brief stint in independent comics with the aforementioned Wu-Tang and Area 52 comics Henry spent his time making ends meet. After several rejection letters Clayton shopped his work around the convention circuit where he was hired by Marvel Comics. Soon he was given a spot on X-Men Unlimited. This eventually led to him being placed on the “Unnatural Instincts” storyline of Exiles. He later worked on Alpha Flight, which was cancelled after twelve issues due to poor sales. Soon he was placed on several other X-Men related projects, including New X-Men: Hellions, and X-Men: Apocalypse vs. Dracula. His work also includes assisting Chris Bachalo with finishing up the “Supernovas” storyline and doing art for Uncanny X-Men.
His most recent work is at DC Comics on the Legion of Superheroes story in the new Adventure Comics series.
