Mark Waid has written a wider variety of well-known characters than any other American comics author, from Superman to the Justice League to Spider-Man to Archie and hundreds of others. His award-winning graphic novel with artist Alex Ross, KINGDOM COME, is one of the best-selling comics of all time.

With over twenty-five years of experience in his field, Waid has recently launched THRILLBENT.COM, a digital-comics site that takes advantage of all the storytelling tools digital publishing allows. With his various collaborators, he is helping to redefine the comics medium for the 21st century.
