The award-winning creator of legendary DC/Vertigo title Preacher, Garth Ennis is considered one of the best writers in comics. Beginning with work in 2000 AD companion magazine Crisis and in 2000 AD itself around 1988, his brilliant eye for characterization and an unflinching ability to tackle any subject matter with equal skill has earned him a place as one of the most influential creators in comics.
Ennis took on long-running DC/Vertigo title Hellblazer in 1991 and under his tenure the comic stood alongside Gaiman's Sandman as DC/Vertigo's best series. But his 1996 launch Preacher was to prove an even better showcase for Ennis' unique talent. A compelling cast of characters in an eyes-wide-open drama unafraid to explore any subject quickly made Preacher one of the most important and controversial titles of the past decade. Ennis has written a number of other projects for DC, including Demon and Hitman, titles like Punisher for Marvel, and a handful of titles from other publishers such as Top Cow's The Darkness and Just a Pilgrim from Black Bull.
At Avatar Press, Ennis worked with John McCrea on the return and expansion of their irreverent private eye classic Dicks, called... Bigger Dicks, and its sequal Dicks 2. Coming next from Ennis at Avatar is his new creator-owned saga 303, with artwork by Jacen Burrows.

Ennis and McCrea's Dicks
The section for Garth Ennis and John McCrea's irreverent private-eyes-turned-rock-stars Dicks saga has a couple new pics added, including McCrea's condom edition cover for issue 1 and a glimpse at one of the most notorious promotional items on the convention circuit and in stores over the past year.
Avatar recently released the Dicks trade paperback collecting the original Dicks series (plus added material from the Bigger Dicks series, and the all-new Dicktionary), and for September we'll be offering that Dicks 2 #1 condom edition cover again, as well as a set of the entire Dicks 2 series for those that missed it the first time around.
Ennis calls the Dicks his favorite characters of any he's ever created or written. And that's really saying something. Grab the Dicks trade and the Dicks 2 issues to find out what the buzz is about.
