Writer of Hawaiian Dick, Adventures of Superman, The Vampire Diaries

B. Clay Moore has written comic books for virtually every major publisher, including Image Comics, Marvel Comics, DC Comics, WildStorm, Oni Press and Top Cow Productions. He is the co-creator of critically acclaimed creator-owned books.

Hawaiian Dick was named by Wizard Magazine one of the top 100 graphic novels published during their lifetime, and Battle Hymn was listed in the book 500 Essential Graphic Novels. In 2009 Moore was nominated for the Crimespree Award for best writer, and Hawaiian Dick was nominated for the Spinetingler Award for best comic book. The Leading Man was optioned for development by Universal Pictures. The upcoming Billy Smoke was optioned for development by Warner Bros.

He co-created JSA Liberty Files: The Whistling Skull with Tony Harris (from DC Comics), and is a founding member of Bad Karma Creative (Bad Karma Volume One). Forthcoming creator-owned books include Aloha, Hawaiian Dick with artist Jacob Wyatt (from Image Comics), Dead Man’s Curve (with Shane White), Billy Smoke (with Eric Kim) and the collected Jackie Karma, with artist Ed Tadem.

Most recently Moore has written Adventures of Superman, and The Vampire Diaries for DC Comics

In an interview about Adventures of Superman, Comic Vine asked what Moore sees as Superman’s greatest strength and weakness:

His greatest strength is his character. If you think about it, it’s the only thing keeping the planet safe…the fact that Superman’s moral compass is strong enough to overcome any temptation to use his powers selfishly. I suppose in some ways that’s also his greatest weakness. Probably the only way to get to Superman is by taking advantage of his selflessness, and his drive to keep the people he loves safe. These are things the reporter in this story can’t relate to at all.
