Über den Autor und weitere Mitwirkende
By the time Kurt Busiek graduated from Syracuse University in 1982, he had already sold his first professional comics script—a backup story that appeared in Green Lantern #162, from DC Comics. Following that, he wrote Power Man and Iron Fist for Marvel for about a year and worked on such series as World’s Finest Comics, Wonder Woman, and Red Tornado.
Since then, Kurt has divided his time between writing mainstream series, including Avengers, Iron Man, Untold Tales of Spider-Man, Conan, Superman, JLA, and Trinity; and creating his own projects, including Thunderbolts, The Power Company, Jonny Demon, The Wizard’s Tale, Shockrockets, Arrowsmith, and the multiple-award-winning Astro City. He’s worked with a variety of talented artists, including Brent Anderson, Mark Bagley, Carlos Pacheco, Stuart Immonen, and Cary Nord.
Kurt has won more than two dozen industry awards for his work. Among them are multiple Eisner Awards and Harvey Awards for Best Series, Best Single Issue, and Best Writer. In 1996, Marvels was named a Best Book for Young Readers by the New York Public Library. Kurt lives in the Pacific Northwest with his wife and two daughters and cat. The author lives in Boston, Massachusetts.
