Also Credited As:
Everbest, Reg

Best known as the creator of Howard the Duck, Stephen Ross Gerber has established a reputation for working at the cutting edge of comics. In a career spanning more than thirty years, Steve has put words in the mouths of virtually every major character in the comic book world -- from Superman to Magilla Gorilla -- 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 Foolkiller , Suburban Jersey Ninja She-Devils, and Omega the Unknown (co-created with Mary Skrenes), all published by Marvel Comics. His runs on Marvel's Man-Thing and Defenders titles 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 Woods Slick, Gerber co-authored BBSs for Dummies (IDG Press), a lighthearted manual on computer telecommunications, and the second season Star Trek: The Next Generation episode, "Contagion."

Gerber died February 10, 2008, after a long battle with lung disease, leaving his eight-issue Doctor Fate story arc unfinished.

Date of Birth: September 20, 1947
Birthplace: St. Louis, Missouri
Date of death: February 10, 2008
