Booth W-17

I got started in the mid-1970s as a member of the “Crusty Bunkers” inking collective. For a short time in 1975–1976 I inked backgrounds (over Curt Swan’s pencils) on Superman for DC Comics. I moved on to regular inking work for DC, and then in 1978 began a long association with Marvel. I have inked over such pencilers as Carmine Infantino on Star Wars, John Romita Jr. on The Uncanny X-Men, June Brigman on Power Pack, John Byrne on Sensational She-Hulk, and Walter Simonson on X-Factor and Orion and George Pérez Brave and the Bold, volume 2. I have also worked with creators such as Bob Budiansky, Colleen Doran, Ron Garney, Mike Grell, Michael Netzer (Nasser), Kevin Nowlan, Don Perlin, Bill Sienkiewicz, Todd McFarlane and Barry Windsor-Smith.

Over the years, I have also inked comics published by Dark Horse, Marvel, Image, DC Comics and Valiant including the Incredible Hulk, Star Wars, Uncanny X-Men, Power Pack and much, much more.

I taught first-year students at the Joe Kubert School of Cartoon and Graphic Art for a brief period in the early 1990s. For a commission, please contact me at
