Atomic Blonde / The Coldest City
The book that became ATOMIC BLONDE, starring Charlize Theron as MI6 officer Lorraine Broughton on a mission to retrieve missing intel in Cold War Berlin — just as the Berlin Wall is about to come crashing down.
“Johnston masterfully draws the story to a height, tension and speed rising as the reader comes to see the whole of things... brilliantly and subtly done.”
The AV Club
A prequel to THE COLDEST CITY, set during the deadly winter of 1981. THE COLDEST WINTER shines a light on David Perceval's early career in Berlin, as he fights to survive the lies and betrayal of the Cold War.
“Gripping, filled with daring escapes and constant double crosses, and the masterful and unexpected conclusion will keep readers guessing up to the very end... Ideal for fans of spy fiction.”
This post-apocalyptic epic is a saga spanning 60 issues, one of only a handful of such longform stories in comics.
WASTELAND is the story of Michael and Abi, two wanderers with strange powers, as they search a ruined America for the truth of The Big Wet — the event that destroyed the world a century before.
“The finest piece of post-apocalyptic fiction on the shelves. Wasteland is exceptional.”
Gripping, twist-filled murder mysteries — in space! THE FUSE follows old hand Klem Ristovych and young hotshot Ralph Dietrich, two overworked and underpaid Homicide detectives, working their shift on a futuristic space station... to solve the old-fashioned business of murder.
“Turns traditional expectations of the genre on their head... if you want more from your science fiction than space opera, The Fuse just might be what you've been looking for.”
The Hollywood Reporter
Adapting the global bestseller YA novels by Anthony Horowitz, the ALEX RIDER graphic novels join MI6's one and only teenage spy as he reluctantly (and repeatedly) saves the world... even though he'd rather be playing football.
“Alex remains an appealing hero... Even adventure lovers unfamiliar with the books will find it difficult to resist the hyperkinetic fun.”
Largely co-written with Andy Diggle, this run of DAREDEVIL saw the blind crimefighter descend into the darkest period of his career, as he became Shogun of the notorious Hand criminal empire.
In addition to the main storyline, Antony also wrote several one-shots and spin-offs featuring DD, including the New York Times bestseller DAREDEVIL SEASON ONE (later reissued as FEARLESS ORIGINS), retelling the hero's earliest adventures in a modern style.
“A fun, breezy read... we dare you to find a better book.”
Other Marvel Heroes
The original transmedia comic series for the game that redefined a genre, DEAD SPACE is a prequel story set on the Aegis VII 'planetcracking' colony and taking place immediately before the events of the videogame (which Antony also wrote).
The graphic novel was so well received that further transmedia was produced for every subsequent DEAD SPACE release. Antony wrote two of these additional tie-ins, SALVAGE and EXTRACTION.
“Probably the best videogame tie-in comic that has ever graced the shelves.”

Alan Moore Adaptations
A retelling of Beauty And The Beast in a world gone mad, FASHION BEAST was the brainchild of Sex Pistols guru Malcolm McLaren and comics legend Alan Moore.
Originally written in 1985 as a screenplay, but deemed “unfilmable” by Hollywood, this New York Times bestselling graphic novel is a faithful adaptation made with McLaren's blessing and overseen by Moore himself.
“An amazing graphic novel... One of those wonderful collaborative projects where you can see each of the collaborators' talents shining through, but which nevertheless feels like a single, seamless whole.”
Cory Doctorow, Boing Boing
