Dan Brereton is a five-time Eisner nominee, Inkpot and ENnie winner, well-known for his vibrant painted comics, illustrations and stories. He considers comics a perfect medium, feeding a life-long obsession with storytelling. Growing up in Northern California, he set aside his aspirations to break into comics long enough to attend art school ( CCAC and the Academy of Art College ) majoring in Illustration. By the time he was finishing his senior year at the Academy, he’d already begun work on THE BLACK TERROR, and was lined up to do THE PSYCHO for DC Comics. Dan won the Russ Manning Promising Newcomer award in 1990. In 1994 his first solo creator-owned title THE NOCTURNALS debuted, which earned him an Eisner Nomination for Best Painter.
Dan’s creator credits include GIANTKILLER, NOCTURNALS, THE PSYCHO (with James Hudnall) and THE LAST BATTLE (with Tito Faraci).
Recent works include MARVEL ANTHOLOGY. LEGENDS OF THE DARK KNIGHT: SIX FINGERS, and the NOCTURNALS: THE SINISTER PATH graphic novel.
