Andy Lanning is an English comic book writer and inker, known for his work for Marvel Comics and DC Comics, and for his collaboration with Dan Abnett.
Lanning works primarily at
Marvel Comics and DC Comics as an inker. He has also pencilled books, such as his creation .
The Sleeze Brothers
Lanning's writing has included his and Abnett's 2000 relaunch of DC's title
. The two co-created the Legion of Super-Heroes Resurrection Man character with artist Jackson Guice in 1997.
Lanning and Abnett also collaborated on an ongoing
series for Marvel, which premiered in 2007. The duo previously authored a Nova Nova miniseries as a tie-in for the Marvel crossover Annihilation, starring Richard Rider, now the only member of the Xandarian Nova Corps. This led into their piloting the "  Annihilation: Conquest" storyline, and the core characters from this went on to form the new  Guardians of the Galaxy.
Lanning teamed up with Abnett to relaunch
, The Authority with  Simon Coleby on art, as part of the World's End relaunch of the core Wildstorm titles.
It was announced at
Wizard World Chicago in June 2008 that Abnett and Lanning had signed an exclusive deal with Marvel, which they hoped would give them time to work on the "cosmic" characters they dealt with, as well as more earth-based ones. The contract allows them to finish existing commitments, so they will be able to finish their fifteen issue run on The Authority. Their first major work which followed this was "  War of Kings", which depicted the "cosmic" aftermath of Secret Invasion. He also wrote the three-issue Marvel/  Top Cow crossover miniseries Fusion.
In 2020 Lanning collaborated with
Ron Marz on the nine-issue DC Comics crossover storyline " Endless Winter", which would debut that December.
