Jay Faerber

Jay Faerber was born in Harvey’s Lake, PA — well, not “in” the lake, but in the town surrounding the lake. He broke into comics working on Marvel and DC titles in the late 1990s, working on titles such as GENERATION X, NEW WARRIORS, TITANS, WOLVERINE / IRON FIST, and GREEN LANTERN. He eventually migrated to Image Comics, where he’s written and co-created NOBLE CAUSES, DYNAMO 5, GEMINI, FIREBIRDS, DODGE’S BULLETS, NEAR DEATH, and POINT OF IMPACT. He currently lives in Los Angeles where he works as a freelance writer of comic books and television.
