Ecce Special Guest Announcement: Daniel Way

Daniel Way

A New York Times best-selling author, Daniel Way got his start in 2000 when he was awarded the prestigious Xeric Grant for Violent Lifestyle, his first attempt at comic book writing. Only a few short months after that book was published, he was contacted by Marvel Comics and asked to write for them, eventually penning many of their top-selling titles including Venom, Ghost Rider, The Incredible Hulk, Wolverine: Origins, Astonishing X-Men and Deadpool, the character with whom he is most closely associated due to his historic 65-issue run on that title. Though he currently concentrates mainly on his creator-owned work, such as the critically acclaimed graphic novel Gun Theory (Dark Horse Comics) and the upcoming, Kickstarter-funded graphic novel Kill-Crazy Nymphos Attack!, co-created by himself and twin filmmakers Jen and Sylvia Soska, he still on occasion writes for other publishers, such as the upcoming Hit-Girl series for Image/Millarworld. In addition to his work in comics, Mr. Way has also worked in video games (Activision’s Deadpool), television and film, having consulted on the Deadpool film at the personal request of the film’s director. He lives in North Carolina and Hawaii.
