Brian K Vaughan a superstar in the realm of comic books. Although he's too cool to say that about himself, it's cool if I say it. He has won the Eisner, Harvey, and Shuster Awards for his critically acclaimed works Y: The Last Man (which is currently being developed into a movie with New Line Cinema) and Ex Machina (also being developed, at a much slower pace.) He's written such mainstream comics as Wolverine, Captain America, Green Lantern, Swamp Thing, and Buffy the Vampire Slayer.
In addition to these accomplishments, Brian also won the award for "2006 Best Comic's Writer" from Wizard Magazine. Most recently, he's broken out of the comic book writing medium and ventured into the realm of TV, writing for some show called Lost. Ever heard of it?
