Gerry Embleton is a British artist, born in London. He is the brother of Ron Embleton. Some of his best early work appeared in Zip, where he took over the 'Strongbow the Mighty' strip in 1958, and Cowboy Picture Library where he drew Davy Crockett, Kit Carson and Kansas Kid (1959-62). In the 1970s, Embleton concentrated on illustrating books and became noted for the historical accuracy of his military illustrations, although he also illustrated fairy tales and histories of the American West. He briefly returned to comics to draw 'Dan Dare' for the revived Eagle in 1982.
