Edward “Ed” McGuinness is an American comic book artist and penciller, best known for his work on Superman, Deadpool and Superman/Batman.
McGuinness is also known as half of the art team of “EdEx” along with inker Dexter Vines. The two men have teamed up on Superman/Batman, JLA Classified, Fallen Son: The Death of Captain America, and The Hulk vol. 4 (the last two series written by another frequent collaborator, Jeph Loeb).
McGuinness has also worked on titles such as Wolverine 96, Fighting American and Mr. Majestic.
McGuinness first gained the notice of comic-book fans with his work on Deadpool and Vampirella. His short run on Wildstorm’s Mr. Majestic landed him a gig on the monthly Superman title with Jeph Loeb, which led to the Thundercats: Reclaiming Thundera limited series, and arcs on Superman/Batman.
In May 2006, McGuinness signed an exclusive two-year contract with Marvel Comics. His first printed Marvel piece was a cover for the Marvel limited series Civil War, and featured the Mighty Thor in his original outfit. He also drew a variant cover for the monumental Captain America #25. McGuinness’s first ongoing story was a 12-page Ultimate back-up featuring the Hulk vs. Wolverine. McGuinness and Loeb are now drawing/writing the new Hulk series, featuring the new “Red Hulk.” He was to pencil the fourth volume of The Ultimates written by Jeph Loeb.
