From a start at short-lived Atlas/Seaboard, Danny Fingeroth moved to Marvel to edit multiple Spider-Man titles; and write for Avengers, Dazzler and What If? During the 1990s, he scripted all fifty issues of Darkhawk, as well as Spider-Man’s Deadly Foes and Lethal Foes miniseries. Leaving Marvel in 1995, he became Virtual Comics’ editor in chief, and then Visionary Media’s senior vice president for creative production; he has also taught comic-book writing courses at select universities. In the prose field, he has written several nonfiction books about the comic-book field, as well as children’s books on noted actors.
Journalist, editor, filmmaker and more, Ann Nocenti has a long history in comics, both as a writer and editor. As an editor at Marvel, she oversaw such titles as New Mutants and Uncanny X-Men. As a writer, she has worked for both Marvel (Longshot, Spectacular Spider-Man, Wolverine) and DC (Batman, Kid Eternity), but is probably best known for her groundbreaking run with John Romita Jr. on Daredevil.
Bruce Jones, a professional writer for more than 30 years, was a founding contributor to the legendary horror magazines Creepy and Eerie. His run on Incredible Hulk shifted the title’s focus from traditional super-heroics to taut psychological thriller, propelling the series to best-selling status.
Bob McLeod began his career in Marvel’s production department in the early 1970s, before graduating to a role as penciler and inker, beginning with Marvel’s Crazy magazine. He is perhaps best known for illustrating the New Mutants’ graphic-novel debut and the first three issues of the trainee X-Men’s ongoing series, written by Chris Claremont. McLeod’s extensive résumé at Marvel and DC includes titles such as Incredible Hulk, Conan the Barbarian, Legion of Super Heroes, Detective Comics and Wonder Woman. He also inked Mike Zeck’s pencils on the memorable Spider-Man tale “Kraven’s Last Hunt.”
British illustrator Liam Sharp made a name for himself drawing Judge Dredd for renowned science-fiction magazine 2000 AD before illustrating Death’s Head II for Marvel UK. Stateside, he won legions of new fans on X-Men, Spider-Man, Venom and Incredible Hulk. Sharp has gone on to enjoy a long and successful career as an artist and publisher.
After establishing himself on Eternity’s Ex-Mutants and First’s Badger, Ron Lim went cosmic with a six-year penciling run on Silver Surfer, followed by a collaboration with Jim Starlin on the Warlock/Thanos Infinity multi-miniseries saga. With writer Tom DeFalco, he helped create the look and characters of the MC2 universe, while he explored a different Marvel future during a 35-issue run on X-Men 2099. Lim’s other Marvel credits include Captain America, Spider-Man Unlimited and Venom: Lethal Protector.
