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 Mr. Way is currently focused mainly upon creator-owned work, such as the upcoming graphic novel Gun Theory (Dark Horse Comics) and the Kickstarter-funded graphic novel Kill-Crazy Nymphos ATTACK!, co-created by twin filmmakers Jen and Sylvia Soska, he still takes on the occasional project for mainstream publishers, such as the upcoming Hit-Girl series for Image Comics/Millarworld. In addition to his work in comics, Mr. Way has also worked in video games and film, having recently consulted on the Deadpool feature at the personal request of the film’s director. In addition to his writing accomplishments, Daniel Way is the founder and director of GeekCraft Expo, a collection of curated, geek-themed craft fairs held across North America and soon, Hawaii. He currently lives in North Carolina.
