Jamie Delano (born 1954 in Northampton) is a British comics writer. He was part of the first post-Alan Moore "British Invasion" of writers. Best known as the first writer of the comic book series Hellblazer, starring John Constantine.

Biography[edit]

Jamie Delano wrote all but three of the first forty issues of Hellblazer for DC Comics from 1988 (Hellblazer #1) to 1991 (Hellblazer #40).

Most of his other work has also been for DC/Vertigo.

Much of Delano's work can be characterized as science fiction, or horror, but often is a blend thereof.

Subjects in his work include the War of the sexes (World Without End), imperialism and genocide (Ghostdancing), and environmental & cultural collapse (2020 Visions, Animal Man).

A. William James is Delano's prose-writing alter ego. His novel Book Thirteen is published under his Lepus Books imprint.
