Also Credited As:
Severin, O. O.


Bio:
Severin began drawing professionally at the age of ten, when he contributed cartoons to The Hobo News. After high school, he worked as an apprentice machinist and then enlisted in the Army during World War II. In the post-WWII years, he entered the comic book field working for several publishers, including stories for Crestwood's American Eagle. At EC, Severin initially worked in tandem with Will Elder, penciling stories that Elder inked, and both were among the original five artists who launched Harvey Kurtzman's Mad, along with Kurtzman, Wally Wood and Jack Davis.

In addition to his position as the lead artist for Two-Fisted Tales, he was its editor for its final issues in 1954. For years, he was a major contributor to Cracked magazine as cartoonist on the Cracked television parodies and other features. With Warren Publishing, he drew for Blazing Combat and Creepy.

Severin did extensive work for Marvel Comics, including The Hulk, The 'Nam, Conan, Captain Savage, What The?! and Semper Fi. As inker, he teamed with penciler Dick Ayers on an acclaimed run of Sgt. Fury and his Howling Commandos that won the Alley Award for Best War Title of 1967 and 1968. Active into the 21st Century, he illustrated the controversial 2003 Marvel limited series The Rawhide Kid, a lighthearted parallel universe Western that reimagined the outlaw hero as a kitschy, though still formidably gunslinging gay man.

Date of Birth: December 21st, 1921
Birthplace: Jersey City, New Jersey, USA
Date of death: February 12th, 2012
