Born and educated in Pennsylvania, Matt Wagner has enjoyed a career in comics for 25 years. His first published work introduced what would eventually become one of the medium's most respected creator-owned characters: the mastermind assassin Grendel. Though he is best known for the various Grendel titles as well as his more personal and allegorical heroic saga Mage, Wagner has also worked on a variety of established characters, including an acclaimed re-imagination of the original Golden Age Sandman, which he developed and wrote for the Vertigo title SANDMAN MYSTERY THEATRE. In addition, following his two successful Grendel/Batman crossovers (DEVIL'S BONES and DEVIL'S DANCE), Wagner has also written and drawn a three-issue Prestige Format miniseries starring Superman, Batman and Wonder Woman, entitled TRINITY, and a year-long Batman project comprising two miniseries, collectively titled DARK MOON RISING, that chronicles some of the earliest aspects of the Dark Knight's career.
