Author note

A New York Times Best-selling Graphic Novelist, Tony Lee was born in West London, UK in 1970. Informed by a teacher that he had a comic book style of writing, `a comment meant more as an insult`, Tony decided that one day he would write for comics.

Tony has written for a variety of mediums including Radio 4, The BBC, commerical television in both the UK and US, magazines and both local and national newspapers.

Since 2002, he has written for a variety of publishers including Marvel Comics, DC Comics/Zuda, Games Workshop, Panini Comics, Titan Publishing, AAM/Markosia Enterprises, Rebellion/2000ad and IDW Publishing amongst others, writing a variety of creator owned titles and licenses that include X-Men, Spider Man, Doctor Who, Starship Troopers, Wallace & Gromit and Shrek.

He is the writer of the ongoing Doctor Who series of comics from IDW, beginning in July 2009, and his award nominated, creator-owned miniseries Hope Falls was collected by AAM/Markosia in May 2009. His next book with them, From The Pages Of Bram Stoker`s `Dracula`: Harker, was released in November 2009 to critical acclaim.

Added to this, Tony adapted Pride & Prejudice & Zombies into a graphic novel for Del Rey Publishing, with art by Cliff Richards - this was a New York Times #1 Bestselling Paperback Graphic Novel for May 2010 - he is also adapting Anthony Horowitz`s Power of Five series into graphic format for Walker Books, the first - Raven`s Gate is due out in late 2010, and he has adapted four Horowitz Horror books with Dan Boultwood for Hachette Children`s Books.

His other book with Walker Books, Outlaw: The Legend Of Robin Hood `drawn by Sam Hart` was released in 2009 and has already been awarded a Junior Library Guild: Fall 2009 Selection, and `best for 2010` awards from both the American Library Association and the New York Public Library in the USA, among others. In March 2010 it was announced that it was also a finalist for the Children`s Choice Book Awards.


"It's beautiful art - and there's a lot of story on the page. Lots of words are always good."
