Troy Nixey began his storytelling career in the early nineties drawing "Dead world" and "Bill The Clown." Over the years he has worked on other notable comics, including “Batman: The Doom that Came to Gotham," Neil Gaiman's “It’s only the End of the World Again,” Matt Wagner's “Grendel: Black, White and Red,” "Harely Quinn" and “Bacon.” Nixey also co-created the comic mini-series “Jenny Finn” with Mike Mignola and the critically acclaimed comic “Trout,” his most personal work.
In 2007, Nixey’s short film “Latchkey’s Lament” screened at the Toronto International Film Festival. It was this short film that attracted Guillermo del Toro and created industry buzz about Nixey’s first feature, which would become “Don’t Be Afraid of the Dark.” His comic book background has been perfect for Nixey’s transition into directing movies.
Troy Nixey continues to work on film projects but his love of creating comics has never waned and he has returned to his roots with a splash with multiple projects on the slate from Dark Horse Comics....one being his most beloved creation "Trout."
