Author Biography:

In addition to runs on Fantastic Four and Thor, original Moon Knight scribe Doug Moench specialized in writing features outside the Marvel mainstream - including Adventure into Fear's Morbius, Frankenstein, Inhumans, Ka-Zar- Lord of the Hidden Jungle, Master of Kung Fu, Werewolf by Night and Astonishing Tales' Deathlok. Proving his eclectic abilities, he also wrote the full run of Godzilla, most of Shogun Warriors and stories for virtually every Marvel black-and-white magazine of the 1970s. He expanded on his Star-Lord and Weirdworld sagas in multiple anthology titles. At DC, he wrote memorable runs on Batman, Detective Comics and Legends of the Dark Knight - along with numerous Batman one-shots, cross-company crossovers and Elseworlds sagas. He further contributed such short-lived but unique series as Electric Warrior, Lords of the Ultra-Realm, Slash Maraud, Wanderers and Xenobrood. One of the Golden Age's earliest talents, George Tuska (1916-2009) created characters for Fiction House, Harvey Comics and Fawcett Comics' Captain Marvel Adventures, among many others. He helped launch one of the most popular post-war genres in Lev Gleason's Crime Does Not Pay. He eventually provided multi-genre art for Atlas Comics, to which he returned following its transformation into Marvel. Tuska penciled Ghost Rider, Luke Cage- Power Man and Sub-Mariner, as well as a 10-year Iron Man stint. At DC, he illustrated Challengers of the Unknown and Superman, among others. As a comic-strip artist, Tuska drew Buck Rogers, Scorchy Smith and DC's World's Greatest Superheroes. His final industry work was cover art for Masquerade, part of Dynamite's Golden Age character revival, bringing him full circle. Alfredo Alcala (1925-2000) earned stardom in the Philippines' comic-book industry with his 1963 series Voltar. Following stints at DC Comics and Warren Publishing, he moved to Marvel and penciled runs of Conan the Barbarian, Star Wars and other licensed titles. After success in film animation and novel illustration, Alcala returned to comics during the 1990s, working in several genres.
