An editor and colorist as well as a writer, Gregory Wright provided both scripts and colors not only for Deathlok, but also for fellow 1990s favorites Morbius and Silver Sable. He also wrote both Daredevil and Nick Fury and colored Amazing Spider-Man, Captain America, Fantastic Four, X-Men: The Hidden Years and other Marvel titles. His DC work has been similarly wide-ranging, with coloring stints on such series as Batman, Nightwing, Starman, Teen Titans and Zero Hour: Crisis in Time. He has earned two Comics Buyer’s Guide Fan Awards for Favorite Colorist.

Glenn Herdling worked as an assistant editor on Amazing Spider-Man starting in 1987, helping the title enjoy a period of record-breaking success. He was later promoted to editorial director of Marvel’s custom-publishing division and designed the company’s first comic-book-style annual reports. His writing career began on Namor.

Multiple Eisner Award-winner Frank Miller broke into the comics business during the late 1970s, landing a choice assignment on the series Daredevil. His work quickly made the title one of Marvel’s best-selling series, as well as establishing Miller as a fan-favorite superstar. During his tenure on Daredevil, he introduced the assassin Elektra, who became a major Marvel character in her own right. After completing his initial run, Miller returned to Daredevil as writer of the acclaimed “Born Again” run with artist David Mazzucchelli; he then collaborated with John Romita Jr. for the Daredevil: Man Without Fear limited series. Miller has also had monumental success with his work on other iconic characters. In 1986, he made a splash at DC with the wildly popular and hugely influential Batman: The Dark Knight Returns, which told the tale of an older Batman still fighting crime decades after his prime. The following year, Miller reteamed with David Mazzucchelli for Batman: Year One, putting a modern spin on Batman’s classic origin story. Miller writes All Star Batman & Robin with artist Jim Lee, continuing to put his distinctive mark on the Dark Knight. Miller has parlayed his talents as a comic-book creator to major success in Hollywood. In 2005, Miller collaborated with Robert Rodriquez to co-direct Sin City, a film that was widely praised by both fans and critics. Two years later, Miller’s 300 met with similar success, breaking multiple box-office records. Miller wrote and directed The Spirit, based on Will Eisner’s classic hero.

After penciling the “Hero Killers” storyline for the 1992 Spider-Man annuals, Scott McDaniel collaborated with writer D.G. Chichester on a controversial Daredevil run in which the hero reunited with assassin Elektra, faked his death and donned a new armored costume. The storyline spun off into McDaniel and Chichester’s Elektra: Root of Evil miniseries. At DC, McDaniel has served as artist on Green Arrow; Richard Dragon; Superman; Trinity; and Batman titles and one-shots including Batman, Nightwing and Robin. He provided artwork for DC’s short-lived “Red Circle” imprint, penciled the Great Ten miniseries and served as writer/artist on the “New 52” incarnation of Static Shock.
