Professional History

Brian K. Vaughan (born 1976, in Cleveland, Ohio) is an American comic book writer best known for the series Y: The Last Man, Ex Machina, Runaways, and Pride of Baghdad.

Early life and career

As an undergraduate film student at New York University, Vaughan took part in Marvel's Stan-hattan Project, a class for fledgling comic book writers that also helped Joe Kelly break into comic books. Vaughan's first credit was Cable #43 (May 1997).

Later career

Vaughan has written for most of the major DC and Marvel characters, including Batman and the X-Men. He has also written several screenplays, stage plays, and short stories, but mostly he prefers writing comic books. He has stated in an interview with Wizarduniverse.com[1] that he prefers to write his own creations like Y: The Last Man and Ex Machina because he doesn't think he's the best at using his "voice" with company-owned characters. Vaughan was hired in late 2006 as an executive story editor for the television series Lost.[2]

New Line Cinema optioned Y: The Last Man and Ex Machina in 2005.[3]

Awards and nominations

  • Eisner Award (2005) for Best Writer, for his work on Y: The Last Man, Runaways, Ex Machina and Marvel's Ultimate X-Men, and for Best New Series (along with artists Tony Harris and Tom Feister) for Ex Machina.
