Spotlight: Greg Rucka

Eisner Award–winning writer and novelist Greg Rucka has made a name for himself by crafting powerfully complex and human stories that can make the most fantastical characters feel real.

While film may favor the classic depiction of capes and cowls, many of today’s comics continue to push the definition of “hero.” Some of the industry’s biggest and brightest have taken the superhero concept and turned it on its head. Many are creating characters and worlds that revel in a much darker vision of high-powered heroes and villains, making it hard to determine whom the reader should be rooting for.
