Alan Grant first entered the comics industry in 1967, writing and editing a variety of British comics. In the late 1980s with writing partner John Wagner, Grant moved into the American comic market with their first title, the 12-issue miniseries called OUTCASTS for DC Comics. It paved the way for Grant to write Batman in DETECTIVE COMICS, and he became one of the main Batman writers through the late 1990s. He has also written LOBO, L.E.G.I.O.N. and THE DEMON for DC.
