Peter Milligan is an award-winning London-based writer of comic books and graphic novels. Published in many languages throughout the world, his work features groundbreaking titles such as his psychedelic ‘Shade The Changing Man’ up to his recent ‘Greek Street’, an  homage to Greek myths seen through the prism of violent modern-day London. His work also includes the more mainstream, from Batman to the successful and critically acclaimed re-imagining of the X-Men myth: ‘X-STATIX’, described by Kevin Smith (‘Clerks’, etc.) as the ‘the most well observed scholarly analysis of media-manipulation filtered through a pop-culture lens ever committed to the page”. Milligan is also a screenwriter, writing the screenplays for PILGRIM (a.k.a. ‘Inferno’), which starred Ray Liotta, and the multi-award winning AN ANGEL FOR MAY, which starred Tom Wilkinson and Geraldine James. He recently completed the screenplay for the near future crime story CROSSING 23, which films in 2011.



Kind of Euripides meets Lock, Stock and Two Smoking Barrels, Greek Street follows the terrible mishaps of Eddie, as he tries to find his biological mother and soon finds himself being pursued by a fearsome gang of London thugs called the Fureys. The second storyline is a short tale called Alex, which focuses on an embittered ex-soldier, traumatised by his time in Afghanistan.


Milligan’s run on the long-running tale of John Constantine has seen the grizzled urban mage try to re-animate the corpse of a dead lover and head off for India in a vain search for spiritual purity. It’s also introduced the sexy Epiphany Greaves, the alchemist daughter of a dangerous London gangster
