From his beginnings at Charlton Comics, Roger Stern has become one of Marvel's most versatile and venerable writers. Stern enjoyed well-received runs of Amazing Spider-Man -- in which he introduced Captain Marvel (Monica Rambeau) and the Hobgoblin -- Avengers and Captain America. He launched West Coast Avengers and wrote numerous tie-in miniseries for Earth's Mightiest Heroes. At DC, he relaunched Atom and co-created Starman (Will Payton) before participating in one of comics' most shocking events: the 1992 "Death of Superman" saga. He has also written three Superman prose novels. He later returned to Marvel to write Amazing Spider-Man and related titles.
Peter B. Gillis began as a 1970s freelancer on Marvel Two-in-One, Super-Villain Team-Up and other titles. Later, he became regular writer on Defenders, Eternals and Strange Tales, in which he subjected Dr. Strange to a soul-searching gamut of good and evil magic. He has also written for First Comics, TSR Games and others; he co-created Shatter, the first digital comic.
A former animator for cult cartoonist Ralph Bakshi, Paul Smith penciled Uncanny X-Men during a brief but pivotal run that included Rogue joining the team, Storm's controversial makeover, Wolverine's near-marriage and Cyclops' wedding to future villain Madelyn Pruor. He then moved to Doctor Strange, Marvel Fanfare and others, later drawing the acclaimed X-Men/Alpha Flight miniseries. With James Robinson, he created DC's groundbreaking Golden Age miniseries, highlighting the publisher's wartime heroes like few before or since. His work for other companies includes First's Grimjack and Image's Leave it to Chance; he returned to Marvel to pencil the miniseries Kitty Pryde: Shadow and Flame, revisiting some themes from his Uncanny work.
Two-time Emmy Award-winner Bret Blevins' early Marvel Work included adaptations of films such as The Dark Crystal, Krull and The Last Starfighter. Moving into the Marvel Universe, he drew Strange Tales' Cloak and Dagger feature, and penciled much of Louise Simonson's New Mutants run. In 1996, he moved into TV animation, storyboarding for Batman Beyond, Justice League and New Batman/Superman Adventures. He now divides his time between oil painting and freelance storyboarding.
Mark Badger's magic-oriented Marvel work includes the Defenders' Gargoyle miniseries and the Greenberg the Vampire graphic novel, both written by fellow mysticism enthusiast J.M. DeMatteis. At DC, he illustrated adventures of two very different detectives, Batman and Martian Manhunter. His work elsewhere includes Dark Horse Presents and First Comics' American Flagg.
"The Doctor is in!
"Strange to think he ever was out, if one reads Roger Stern's lengthy stint on the Sorcerer Supreme's solo book. Stern chronicled the adventures of [Doctor Strange], pitting him against a variety of foes both mystic and more down to earth. However, the quintessential 80s Strange didn't appear until Stern was joined by artist Paul Smith, who had been garnering quite a bit of attention at the time because of his work on Uncanny X-men.
"Smith's crispy, clear lined art proved to be a perfect match for the often arcane otherworldly messes Doctor Strange got himself involved with. The result was a comic that not only looked incredible, it also told particularly fascinating tales, often within the space of a single issue.
"What it boils down to, is the very root of the Marvel Universe. The one, defining aspect that sets it apart from its, shall we say, Distinguished Competitors: the only reason why the fantastical is so engrossing, is the fact that it is tempered with an undeniable sense of identifiable humanity." -- Jef Willemsen
