Dennis O'Neil is the influential writer of comics including BATMAN, GREEN LANTERN/GREEN ARROW, THE JUSTICE LEAGUE OF AMERICA and countless other titles. He is also the author of The DC Comics Guide to Writing for Comics (Watson Guptill). Born on June 15, 1941 in New York City, Neal Adams began his comics career immediately after high school and has worked in the field ever since. He joined DC Comics in 1965, where he quickly became one of their top cover artists, contributing radical and dynamic illustrations to nearly every title the company published. His first interior work was done for editor Robert Kanigher's war titles, but it was his celebrated run on a new title called DEADMAN that began to build his reputation as a revolutionary creative force. In addition to his pivotal artistic and business roles, Adams has also been an outspoken supporter of creators' rights in the comics industry and was influential in convincing comic book publishers to return original artwork to the artists who created it.
