Ethan Sacks is best known in comics as the writer of Marvel’s Old Man Hawkeye, Silver Surfer, Old Man Quill, Star Wars: Galaxy’s Edge, Star Wars: Rise of the Skywalker: Allegiance and Star Wars: Bounty Hunters. In the three years since he broke into the industry, Sacks has also written Kiss Zombies for Dynamite Entertainment and an acclaimed non-fiction series, Covid Chronicles, depicting personal accounts from the frontlines of the pandemic for AWA Studios and NBC News.
Before his career change, Ethan was a 20-year veteran at the New York Daily News, covering film and geek culture, in which he interviewed everyone from Ben Affleck to Zhang Ziyi. His biggest scoop was Marvel’s decision to kill off Captain America, an exclusive picked up by 4,000 outlets around the world.
Coming this fall from Image Comics’ imprint, Syzygy Publishing, is a gripping new four-issue horror series, A Haunted Girl. Co-written by the father-daughter team of Ethan Sacks and Naomi Sacks, with art by Marco Lorenzana, this paranormal thriller channels terrors both otherworldly as well as the real-life terror that comes with struggles of anxiety and depression.
