In August 2005 Marvel Editor-in-Chief Joe Quesada named him as one of Marvel Comics's "Young Guns",[1] a group of artists who have the qualities that make "a future superstar penciller".


Hairsine began his professional career working for the Judge Dredd Megazine, where he co-created the character of Harmony Krieg, and at 2000 AD, as one of the artists of the anthology's flagship series Judge Dredd.

He worked on the first three issues of Cla$$war but problems for the publisher Com.x caused a delay in publication and Hairsine had already got the attention of Marvel Comics and went on to provide the art for Captain America.[2] He has since worked mostly for Marvel since, frequently illustrating scripts by Brian Michael Bendis and fellow-Brit Warren Ellis.

At the New York Comic Con it was announced that he would be providing the art for[clarification needed] Killapalooza, a new title from Wildstorm, written by Adam Beechen.[3][4]
