Al Ewing began his career writing stories in the five-page Future Shocks format for 2000 AD and eventually moved on to regular stints on Judge Dredd where he wrote a story, “Doctor What?” that marked Brendan McCarthy’s return to 2000 AD. The two would go on to work together on a new series The Zaucer of Zilk. Recent work includes Damnation Station and Zombo.
Also responsible for the mobile comic Murderdrome with P. J. Holden, he has also contributed to Solar Wind, FutureQuake, and The End Is Nigh.
In May 2007, he created the comedic blog The Diary of Ralph Dibney, in which he writes as the superhero Elongated Man, his therapist, or Richard Dragon, reacting to the events of each week’s issue of the comic book 52.
Being picked by Garth Ennis to provide a six-issue arc on Jennifer Blood, a comic published by Dynamite Entertainment and spin-off series The Ninjettes gave Al the opportunity to break into American comic books.
His debut novel was published in 2007 by Abaddon Books. Pax Britannia: El Sombra features a mysterious Mexican hero fighting against the menace of steam-powered Nazis as part of the Pax Britannia universe, a story expanded in further novels since.
Al has gone on to become the regular writer for Doctor Who: The Eleventh Doctor and a leading Marvel writer including Mighty Avengers and Loki: Agent of Asgard and co-wrote the first year of the Eleventh Doctor Who title with Rob Williams for Titan Comics.
He has since written New Avengers, U.S.Avengers, The Ultimates, Rocket, Royals, and The Immortal Hulk, all for Marvel.
