Author Biography

Born in 1911 in Brooklyn, New York, Gardner Fox was probably the single most imaginative and productive writer in the Golden Age of comics. In the 1940s, he created or co-created dozens of long-running features for DC Comics, including the Flash, Hawkman, the Sandman, and Doctor Fate, as well as penning most of the adventures of comics' first super-team, the Justice Society of America. He was also the second person to script Batman, beginning somewhere around the Dark Knight Detective's third story. For other companies over the years Fox also wrote Skyman, the Face, Jet Powers, Dr. Strange, Doc Savage and many others—including Crom the Barbarian, the first sword and sorcery series in comics. Following the revival in the late 1950s of the superhero genre, Fox assembled Earth's Mightiest Heroes once more and scripted an unbroken 65-issue run of Justice League of America. Though he produced thousands of other scripts and wrote over 100 books, it is perhaps this body of work for which he is best known. Fox passed away in 1986.

Born in 1926, Bob Haney grew up in Philadelphia and entered the comics field in 1948, writing war, crime, and western stories for a wide variety of publishers. Haney is perhaps best known for his role in the creation of Metamorpho, Eclipso and the Teen Titans, his long runs on Batman and Robin, Suicide Squad, Tomahawk and Mystery in Space, and his contributions to DC's line of war comics.

Neal Adams was born June 6, 1941 in New York City. He attended Manhattan's High School of Industrial Art and, while still a student, found work ghosting the Bat Masterson syndicated newspaper strip and drawing gag cartoons for Archie Comics. Neal received his own comic strip based on the popular TV series Ben Casey in 1962. The strip ran until 1965 at which time Neal made the move to comics for Warren Publishing and DC Comics. Neal's realistic style on Deadman and Green Lantern/Green Arrow, at odds with the more cartoony comics of the day, made him an immediate star. He became DC's premier cover artist, contributing radical and dynamic illustrations to virtually the company's entire line. Neal's work has also appeared in Marvel's X-Men, The Avengers, and Thor, on paperback book covers, and on stage, as the art director for the Broadway science fiction play, Warp. In the 1970s, Neal and partner (and frequent inker) Dick Giordano started the art agency Continuity Associates out of which came, in the 1980s, Continuity Comics. Neal is the winner of several Alley, Shazam, and Inkpot Awards, and was inducted into the Harvey Awards' Jack Kirby Hall of Fame in 1999.

Gil Kane is recognized as one of the most influential artists in comic books, with a string of credits at DC, Marvel, and other companies that includes Batman, Superman, Green Lantern, The Atom, The Flash, Conan, T.H.U.N.D.E.R. Agents, and many others. In the late 1950s and early 1960s, he was the artist tapped to relaunch both Green Lantern and The Atom, and, during the '60s, he was responsible for the first mass-market comic books, including the magazine His Name is Savage and the illustrated paperback novel Blackmark. With writer Ron Goulart, Kane created the newspaper comic strip Star Hawks.
