STEVE ENGLEHART is best known for his work at Marvel writing the Avengers, Defenders, Captain America, Doctor Strange, and West Coast Avengers. He and Jim Starlin created characters such as Shang Chi. He is the writer that created Mantis, gave the Beast his blue-fur, introduced the dark god known as Shuma-Gorath, and helped make Captain Mar-Vell a cult classic after Starlin's legendary run.
While at DC he worked on the Justice League of America and Green Lantern, wrote a definitive run on Detective Comics that has influenced many future interpretations of Batman.
At Valiant he helped create Shadowman and wrote X-O Man-of-War.
RICK LEONARDI is one of the most beloved and influential comic book artists of the Modern Age, known for his work on CLOAK AND DAGGER, UNCANNY X-MEN, NEW MUTANTS, NIGHTWING, BATGIRL, GREEN LANTERN VERSUS ALIENS, and SUPERMAN.
One of his most notable contributions is co-creating SPIDER-MAN 2099. He is credited (along with Mike Zeck) as one of the key designers for the black costume which Spider-Man wore in the 1984 SECRET WARS mini-series, and continued wearing through the years much to the delight of fans. The idea of a black Spider-Man costume came from a fan letter from Randy Schueller. Now, over 25 years later Marvel is publishing Randy’s original story concept as a comic and Rick is illustrated it: SENSATIONAL SPIDER-MAN: SELF-IMPROVEMENT #1.
Rick also co-created “Rose” with writer Tom DeFalco in AMAZING SPIDER-MAN #253, and helped Chris Claremont create the fictional country of Genosha in UNCANNY X-MEN #235.
In April of 2019, Leonardi took over artwork on BATMAN BEYOND. Other notable works include THE VIGILANTE (2008), JSA: CLASSIFIED, CONVERGENCE BATGIRL, BIRDS OF PREY, PAINKILLER JANE, DAREDEVIL, MARVEL COMICS PRESENTS, THE RAMPAGING HULK, and SPECTACULAR SPIDER-MAN.
