So in the spirit of a weekly thread (thanks Mike!). Every Monday I will post a link to an interesting Wiki on someone involved in the comics industry.
I know we could all go get this on our own, but we could do that for the diamond list too, then there wouldn't be anyone playing "make friends" now would there.
WIKI WEEK 1: (due to his recent induction into the comics book hall of fame ) JIM STERANKO
James Steranko (born 5 November 1938, Reading, Pennsylvania, United States) is an American graphic artist, comic book writer-artist-historian, publisher, and film production illustrator. His most famous comic-book work was with the 1960s superspy feature "Nick Fury, Agent of S.H.I.E.L.D." in Marvel Comics' Strange Tales and in the subsequent eponymous series. Steranko earned lasting acclaim for his innovations in sequential art during the Silver Age of comic books, particularly his infusion of surrealism, op art, and graphic design into the medium. His work has been published in many countries and his influence on the field has remained strong since his comics heyday. He was inducted into the Comic Book Hall of Fame in 2006.
