As Paul said on his own blog when the book was set to be released:
"[Knight and Squire] is a very British one....they come from a deliberately over the top, tremendously fun DC Britain that had previously been only slightly explored.Paul Allor, in the article "Knight & Squire: A Study of Structure."
If Captain Britain was a more realistic take on British superheroics, Knight and Squire delights in Mary Poppins absurdity, in what I think is a quite 2000AD way. The artist on this six issue miniseries is the great Jimmy Broxton."
In addition to writing comics, Paul Cornell is a novelist and TV writer, notably for the television show Doctor Who.
Most recently, he has written both Demon Knights and Stormwatch for DC Comics.
Coming soon is his new creator-owned series from Vertigo entitled Saucer Country, where Paul and artist Ryan Kelly tell the story of a U.S. presidential candidate and her alcoholic ex being abducted by aliens.
