About the Author
Multiple Eisner Award-nominee Brian Wood released his first series, Channel Zero, to considerable critical acclaim in 1997. He is best known for original series such as DMZ, Northlanders, Demo and Local. In 2011, Wood kicked off the second major phase of his career with the original series The Massive and Anthem, Conan for Dark Horse Comics, and Wolverine and the X-Men: Alpha & Omega for Marvel. Talented French artist Olivier Coipel is one of Marvel's top stars, having caught the eyes of Avengers fans with his work in a series of startlingly fresh and exciting stories in 2004. However, his modest entrance into the comic-art scene couldn't have prepared anyone for what came next: a star turn on the 2005 blockbuster limited series House of M. Proving his mettle with the grand splendor and huge cast of a Marvel epic, he earned the plum assignment of restoring the hallowed halls of Asgard to grandeur in J. Michael Straczynski's Thor. Again called on to illustrate a Marvel mega-event, Coipel reunited with House of M writer Brian Michael Bendis on Siege. He then returned to the world of Marvel's Thunder God, launching The Mighty Thor with writer Matt Fraction.
