Ed Brubaker is the second son of a retired spy and a neurotic school-teacher, both very literary drinkers. His father started feeding him comics at age 2 to get him jumpstarted on reading, and it's been all downhill from that point on.
His work as a cartoonist has received Harvey, Eisner and Ignatz nominations, and as a writer he's been nominated for several Eisner's, as well. His work includes, A COMPLETE LOWLIFE, DETOUR, SCENE OF THE CRIME (drawn by Michael Lark), AN ACCIDENTAL DEATH (drawn by Eric Shanower), THE FALL (drawn by Jason Lutes) and a lot of issues of Batman and the highly successful relaunch of CATWOMAN (drawn by Darwyn Cooke and Mike Allred) from DC Comics. Upcoming work for 2002 includes, POINT BLANK (drawn by Colin Wilson) and SLEEPER (drawn by Sean Phillips) for Wildstorm Productions Mature Readers Line.
He is also currently hard at work on the screenplay for THE FALL for David Goyer's Phantom Four Films.
