Meet the Author

Though he was well-versed in all genres, John Broome was best known for the science fiction-oriented work he produced during his long career in comics, under both his own name and the oft-used pen names of John Osgood and Edgar Ray Merrit. Recruited from the science fiction pulp magazines in the early 1940s by DC editor Julius Schwartz, Broome adapted his skills effortlessly from prose to illustrated fiction.
Throughout the ’40s, ’50s and ’60s, Broome penned myriad features for Schwartz, including the Justice Society of America, Captain Comet, Detective Chimp, and the Atomic Knights. Today, comics historians are most familiar with his work on the Silver Age titles THE FLASH and GREEN LANTERN, the two series which best gave him the opportunity to exercise his greatest strength: imbuing even the most straitlaced super-heroes with a whimsical sense of humor and strong, solid characterization.
John Broome retired from comic books in 1970 to travel the world and teach English in Japan. He passed away in 1999.
