Artists Information

Joe Giella is an American comic book artist best known as a DC Comics inker during the late 1950s and 1960s Silver Age of comic books. Giella's career began in the 40's at Hillman and later working with C.C. Beck on Captain Marvel stories at Fawcett. He would also assist on Captain America, Human Torch, Sub-Mariner and other stories at Timely. It was the Silver Age where he would come to his most prominence, working at DC on many of their biggest titles, including Batman, Green Lantern and Strange Adventures, working often with artist Carmine Infantino.

Gil Kane was a Latvian-born American comics artist whose career spanned the 1940s to the 1990s and virtually every major comics company and character. Kane co-created the modern-day versions of the superheroes Green Lantern and the Atom for DC Comics, and co-created Iron Fist with Roy Thomas for Marvel Comics. He was involved in such major storylines as that of The Amazing Spider-Man #96–98, which, at the behest of the U.S. Department of Health, Education, and Welfare, bucked the then-prevalent Comics Code Authority to depict drug abuse, and ultimately spurred an update of the Code. Kane additionally pioneered an early graphic novel prototype, His Name Is... Savage, in 1968, and a seminal graphic novel, Blackmark, in 1971. In 1997, he was inducted into both the Will Eisner Comic Book Hall of Fame and the Harvey Award Jack Kirby Hall of Fame.

Mike Sekowsky was an American comics artist known as the penciler for DC Comics' Justice League of America during most of the 1960s (including their initial appearance in Brave and the Bold #28), and as the regular writer and artist on Wonder Woman during the late 1960s and early 1970s. Sekowsky's long career began in the early 40s for Timely Comics drawing the adventures of Captain America, and Sub-Mariner among others in titles such as All Winners Comics, Daring Comics, Marvel Mystery Comics, and Young Allies Comics. He would transition to DC Comics in the 1950s where we would work on Romance and Science Fiction stories including drawing the first appearance of Adam Strange in Showcase #17. He would co-create the Justice League of America with Gardner Fox and continue as it's artist for over 60 issues. Sekowsky would go on to have memorable runs as artist and writer on Metal Men, Wonder Woman, and the Supergirl feature in Adventure Comics.

Inker, started out in the 1940s, ended up at DC Comics working with Gil Kane, Mike Sekowsky, and Carmine Infantino on titles including Wonder Woman, All Star Comics, Justice League of America, and Our Army at War.
