Jamie Delano is a British comics writer that has made a diverse, cross-genre contribution to the comic book medium, scripting — over some 25 years — both original works and publisher-owned properties. He is best known as the first writer of the comic book series HELLBLAZER starring John Constantine. Delano was hand-picked by Alan Moore to continue writing the adventure of Constantine, originally a secondary character introduced during Moore's revolutionary SWAMP THING run. Delano established the character in his own right and set him in London. His approach to writing owes much to the quiet, cold but vicious work of British "new wave" writers and it is this tone that makes Delano one of Vertigo's most prolific and most crucial creators.
