About Garth Ennis

See more books from this Author
A cornerstone of the modern comic industry, Garth Ennis is most easily recognized as the creator of Preacher, one of the best-selling graphic novel series of all time. His full list of writing credits is nothing short of extraordinary; his career highlights include Judge Dredd, Hellblazer, The Demon, Hitman, Punisher, The Pro, War Story, and The Boys. Over the past ten years, Ennis has published numerous acclaimed and fan-favorite projects through Avatar Press, including Dicks, Chronicles Of Wormwood, 303, Streets Of Glory, and the wildly successful Crossed series. He wrote and directed his first film, Stitched, which Avatar Press will continue as an ongoing comic book series illustrated by Mike Wolfer. John McCrea is a comic book artist hailing from Belfast in Northern Ireland. Breaking into the comic industry in 1988, he soon partnered with Garth Ennis and gained mainstream success in the American market with such titles as DC Comics' The Demon and Hitman, the latter of which earned the creative team an Eisner Award for "Best Single Issue" in 1999. A versatile sequential artist, McCrea's range encompasses everything from painted realism to cartoony exaggeration, capturing heart-wrenching drama to gritty action and toilet humor.
