Abstract
Dan Spiegle is one of the most respected—and hardest working—comic artists of the last sixty years, with a career spanning the Golden Age of comics through the Modern era. From his beginnings on the Hopalong Cassidy newspaper strip, to his thirty-year tenure on Dell and Gold Key’s licensed TV and Movie adaptions (Lost in Space, Korak, Magnus Robot Fighter, Mighty Sampson, Buck Rogers), Dan’s work is admired by fans and professionals alike. During the 1980s, he worked at DC Comics on Batman, Unknown Soldier, Tomahawk, Jonah Hex, Teen Titans, and the fan-favorite reboot of Blackhawk (taking the character back to its World War II roots), as well as his popular Crossfire series for Eclipse Comics, Dark Horse’s Indiana Jones series, and more. In this book, author John Coates documents Dan's entire life in comics, through interviews filled with insight into the comic industry, colorful anecdotes of meeting celebrities, plus an examination of Dan’s artistic process from script to finished drawing, as well as personal reflections by Dan’s family on growing up with a father in comics. It includes dozens of images of Dan’s work, along with personal photos of family and industry peers, and numerous private commission drawings. If you’ve read comics between the mid-1950s through the 2000s, you’ve probably enjoyed a comic with Dan’s art—now learn about his life in comic art. Includes a color section, a Foreword by longtime collaborator Mark Evanier, and an Afterword by Sergio Aragones!
