Ken Lashley has always loved comics from when he was a young boy growing up in Toronto, Ontario, Canada. His mother bought him his first book, Black Panther vs the KKK. Ken is pretty sure his mom never read the issue before she gave it to Ken, but Ken has been hooked on comics ever since.

Ken is an industry veteran working on such titles as Excalibur, X-Caliber Age of Apocalypse, Black Panther, X-Men, Spiderman, The Flash, JLA, Superman, Superman DOOMED, Uncanny X-Men, and many others.

Ken is one of DC comics go-to cover artists, having done covers for Batwing, Ravagers, He-Man, Superboy, Earth 2, Red Hood and the Outlaws, Superman-Wonder Woman, Superman, Batman, Suicide Squad to name a few. Outside of comics Ken has worked for Hasbro, Lucasfilm, Mattel and Fox Sports, creating designs for such lines as G.I Joe, Transformers, Spiderman, Avengers, and Star Wars. His work that was created for Fox Sports was nominated for an Emmy.

Ken is currently providing the art on X-Men: Gold.
