Ed Brubaker has won the Best Writer Award in the Harveys and the Eisners five times since 2006. His work with Sean Phillips on Sleeper, Criminal, Incognito, and Fatale (from Image Comics), has been translated around the world to great acclaim. He was raised partly on Navy bases, and began school in Cuba, on the Naval base at Guantanamo Bay. He credits being forced to go to his mother's AA meetings throughout much of his childhood with planting the seed of writing in his brain, and his father's love of comics and movies for nurturing it. He currently lives in Los Angeles with his wife Melanie and their dog Watson, where he works in comics, film, and television. And he hates writing about himself in third person, but what's he gonna do?
