About the Author

This slope-shouldered industry veteran was a long-running writer on DC's Legion of Super-Heroes, a founding editor at their Vertigo imprint, and the proud writer of their worst-selling, award-losing series Hourman.

He has since written enough major characters to fill one of those hyper-populated super-hero posters where you don't know who to look at first.

Today he happily writes and edits AHOY Comics from his Ditkoesque office in Downtown Syracuse, NY.

Richard Williams' illustration work has appeared in many national magazines, most notably MAD, for whom he was the cover artist during the 1980s. He has also illustrated children’s books (The Legend of the Christmas Rose, Lewis and Clark: Explorers of the American West) and painted covers for many young adult books such as Encyclopedia Brown.

A partial list of his clients includes: IBM, NBC television, Hallmark Cards, Nabisco, Chesebrough-Pond, MAD, Esquire, Ms., Reader's Digest, TV Guide, Time, Family Circle, Parents, Field & Stream, Women’s Day, Atlantic Monthly, Guideposts, Redbook, Cosmopolitan, Forbes, Bantam books, Simon & Schuster, Holiday House, Dell, Doubleday, Scholastic Books, Harper Collins, Putnam, Clarion Books, MacMillan Press, Ballantine, Atheneum Books, David C. Cooke, EP Dutton, Recorded Books, Henry Holt, Aladdin Books, Canard Design, Abrams Art Books, National Park Service, Della Femina McNamee, Drambuie, Strathmore Paper, and the Library of Congress.

His paintings have been purchased by Steven Spielberg, George Lucas, and Howard Stern and are in the collections of the Society of Illustrators and the Library of Congress.

Richard holds a master's degree in illustration from Syracuse University.

Peter Snejbjerg draws drawings for a living and has done so for many years. He has worked for a number of American and international comic book publishers. He lives in Copenhagen, Denmark.
