Steve Gerber

Best known as the creator of Howard the Duck, Steve Gerber has established a reputation for working at the cutting edge of comics. In a career spanning more than 25 years, Steve has put words in the mouths of virtually every major character in the comic book world — from Superman to Scooby Doo — and his work has appeared under the imprint of almost every major publisher in the field. He has also written extensively in animation and television, and even has a computer book to his credit.

Steve's other comics creations include Nevada (Vertigo Press); Void Indigo (Epic Comics); Sludge (Malibu Comics); Destroyer Duck (Eclipse Comics and Image Comics); Stewart the Rat (Eclipse Comics); A. Bizarro (DC Comics); as well as Omega the Unknown, Void Indigo, Foolkiller, and Suburban Jersey Ninja She-Devils, all published by Marvel Comics. His runs on Marvel’s Man-Thing and Defenders series and his Phantom Zone miniseries for DC are considered comic book classics. Steve also wrote, edited, and supervised the production of Marvel’s celebrated KISS comic book, based on the goth-glam rock band.

In 1998, Toons magazine asked its readers to vote for the Top 25 animated series of all time. Steve served as chief story editor on two of those series — G.I. Joe (Sunbow Productions) and Dungeons & Dragons (Marvel Productions) — and won an Emmy for his work as staff writer on a third, The Batman/Superman Adventures (WB Animation). Steve also co-created and story edited the animated cult favorite Thundarr the Barbarian for Ruby-Spears Productions.

In collaboration with Beth Slick, Gerber co-authored BBSs for Dummies (IDG Press), a lighthearted manual on computer telecommunications, and an episode of Star Trek: The Next Generation.

Never one to look backward, Steve's interests now lie in the convergence of comics with the Internet. Most recently, he has worked as a story editor and writer for Stan Lee Media, producing original content for the web.

"As comics and the net come together," Steve says, "we're finally getting to use the kind of technology that comic book creators have written about for decades. For anyone who understands its potential, this is the most exciting evolutionary leap in comics since that kid blasted off from Krypton in 1938."

Steve Gerber passed away Februay 10, 2008.
