NEW YORK TIMES BEST-SELLING AUTHOR, TELEVISION CREATOR, GRAPHIC NOVELIST
BRIAN WOOD'S HISTORY OF PUBLISHED WORK INCLUDES NEARLY FIFTY VOLUMES OF GENRE-SPANNING ORIGINAL MATERIAL.
From the 1500-page future war epic DMZ, the ecological disaster series The Massive, the American crime drama Briggs Land, the takedown of excess and celebrity in Starve, the blistering youth culture action quadrilogy The Couriers, and the groundbreaking lo-fi dystopia Channel Zero, Wood has a proven track record of marrying socially-conscious world-building and political commentary with compelling and diverse characters.
His Young Adult novels - Demo, Local, The New York Four, and Mara - have made YALSA and New York Public Library best-of lists. His historical fiction - the Viking-era Northlanders, and the American Revolution-centered Rebels - are benchmarks in the comic book industry.
He's written some of the biggest franchises in pop culture, including Star Wars, Terminator, RoboCop, Conan The Barbarian, EVE: Online, Planet of the Apes, and the X-Men. He created the character of Zula Hendricks for the Aliens universe, and worked for Rockstar Games on the development and release of Grand Theft Auto 3 and Vice City.
He co-wrote the award-winning video game 1979 Revolution: Black Friday, and is currently adapting several of his books for television.
