Andy Lanning is a British comic book writer and inker, known for his work for Marvel Comics and DC Comics, and for his collaboration with Dan Abnett.
Lanning works primarily at Marvel Comics and DC Comics as an inker. He has also pencilled books, such as his creation The Sleeze Brothers.
Lanning’s writing has included his and Abnett’s 2000 relaunch of DC’s title Legion of Super-Heroes. The two co-created the Resurrection Man character with artist Jackson Guice in 1997.
Lanning and Abnett also collaborated on an ongoing Nova series for Marvel, which premiered in 2007. The duo previously authored a Nova miniseries as a tie-in for the Marvel crossover Annihilation, starring Richard Rider, now the only member of the Xandarian Nova Corps. This led into their piloting the Annihilation: Conquest storyline, and the core characters from this went on to form the new Guardians of the Galaxy.
Lanning teamed up with Abnett to write the latest incarnation of The Authority, with Simon Coleby on art, as part of the World’s End relaunch of the core Wildstorm titles.
