Tom King is a comic book writer and novelist, best known for his work at DC Comics including GRAYSON and OMEGA MEN. He often relies on his experience as an ex-CIA agent and experiences during the recent conflicts in the Middle East in his writing, especially apparent in GRAYSON (alongside co-writer Tim Seeley), OMEGA MEN and in SHERIFF OF BABYLON, published under the Vertigo imprint.
"The most comprehensive war fiction of our generation."
"Wall-to-wall awesome! Fantastic writing, amazing art, and a protagonist that kicks ass from the word go. THE SHERIFF OF BABYLON rocks!" --Brad Thor, New York Times best-selling author of Code of Conduct
"Incredible...reading THE SHERIFF OF BABYLON is like watching a big budget Iraq crime movie. Mitch Gerads draws this beauty in an engrossing and cinematic style...Tom King's writing is equally cinematic. His truncated scenes, fast moving plot, and compelling large cast are all superbly handled in this book that truly has a unique voice and style." --IGN "Superb...a complex depiction of a country very different from the foreign country invading it in the particulars, yet helplessly influenced by how that country sees it, and how that perception drives money and power." --UPROXX
