About the author (2001)

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 continued as an ongoing series.

Beginning his career in comic books as a freelance artist in 1990, David Lapham founded El Capitan Books in 1995 exclusively to publish his Eisner Award-winning crime comic book series, "Stray Bullets". In recent years, he has worked as a writer for DC Comics, Marvel Comics, IDW Publishing, Dark Horse, and finally Avatar Press, on three "Crossed" projects ("Family Values", "Crossed 3D", "Badlands", and "Psychopath"), "Ferals", and "Caligula".

He contributed extensively to the library of respected UK publisher 2000 AD, including their flagship comic book series "Judge Dredd, Harry Kipling, Lobster Random, and The Simping Detective". He also wrote several novels set in the 2000 AD and Warhammer 40,000 story continuities. With the debut of his creator-owned series "Gutsville" in 2007, Spurrier began to work in the American comic book market, predominantly on such Marvel Comics properties as "Silver Surfer, Ghost Rider, and X-Men". In 2011, Spurrier launched a successful web comic through Avatar Press, "Crossed: Wish You Were Here", which presents his take on the on the popular horror franchise (CrossedComic.com).

Marc Silvestri, a major twenty-year comic book veteran, has been involved with content development since his start at Marvel Comics.

As an artist, Silvestri was instrumental in the success of such popular Marvel comic book properties as Uncanny X-Men and Wolverine, and went on to build a fan following unmatched by few other creators.
Silvestri's success in the publishing world has expanded into new areas of entertainment, including animation, action figures, live action television, features, interactive media, and international licensing.
