Massimo Belardinelli was an Italian comic artist best known for his work on 2000AD.

Son of an amateur oil painter, Belardinelli went into animation in the 1960s, inspired by the film Fantasia. His initial work in animation and comics was drawing backgrounds for the Sergio Rosi Studio, followed by work with the Giolitti Studio. His agent, Alberto Giolitti got him work in Italy, the U.S.A. and the U.K until Giolitti's death on 15 April 1993[2].

Belardinelli was the only artist in the initial line-up of 2000AD Prog 1 to receive a byline[3].

He was particularly noted for his aliens, alien spaceships and alien landscapes[4].
