Editorial Reviews


“Pretty much everything I have ever wanted a comic book to be.”—
Brian K. Vaughan, creator of Y: THE LAST MAN and

“Chalk up another creative victory for writer Wood (DMZ), who's quickly emerging as one the medium's premier scribes. Like his best work, NORTHLANDERS takes you into a well-researched, richly realized world that illuminates politics and culture without getting bogged down in history-book stuff. A-“—ENTERTAINMENT WEEKLY

"Thoroughly researched by Wood (DMZ) and totally entertaining."
 “Taut, historically well researched. . . . As a picture of human behavior in extreme conditions, these stories are moving and memorable.” –PUBLISHERS WEEKLY --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.

After graduating from the prestigious Parsons School of Design, Brian Wood spent several years in video game design with Rockstar Games, most notably for the Grand Theft Auto franchise before moving full time into writing. Brian’s comic book work has been published by DC Entertainment, Marvel Comics, Image Comics, Dark Horse, Boom! Studios, and others.

His original graphic novels are some of the most influential in comics. Starting with Channel Zero, his street activist call-to-arms, Brian has unapologetically made politics and socially conscious thrillers the center of his career. His DMZ defined comics’ response to the war on terror. The Massive took on climate change and next-gen environmentalism. Briggs Land, the crime saga set on a secessionist compound, tackled the scourge of the alt right. Starve is about food sustainability and class divide.

His historical fiction has similarly blazed a singular trail. Northlanders, his Viking anthology, set a benchmark in the comics industry. Rebels, his populist American Revolution anthology, is on the curriculum of schools across the country. Sword Daughter is a pulpy Samurai/Norse mashup, and Magnus Black, the brutal fixer in Black Road, is a Jack Reacher for the dark ages.

His YA books Demo, Local, Mara, and The New York Four have made YASLA and New York Public Library best-of lists. He’s also written for some of the biggest franchises in pop culture, including Star Wars, Aliens, Terminator, RoboCop, and the X-Men.

He co-wrote the award-winning video game 1979 Revolution: Black Friday and contributed story material to Fox’s upcoming Alien shooter.

He’s written TV pilots for AMC, Team Downey and Sonar Entertainment, and WV Enterprises. His DMZ is currently in production at HBO Max with Ava DuVernay directing.
