Search for 'Leon Lazarus' on Amazon

Leon Lazarus was an American writer-editor for publisher Martin Goodman's Magazine Management Company, as well as for Goodman's Timely and Atlas comic book companies, the two predecessors of Marvel Comics. The uncredited author of countless comic-book stories from 1947 through at least 1965 with his name long considered a possible pseudonym on the rare occasions it appeared the 85-year-old Lazarus was located in 2005 by comics historians who then initiated efforts to document his credits and fill some of the many gaps in the medium's record.

In addition to comic books, Lazarus wrote paperback books, including two in the popular "Nick Carter" detective novel series, as well as children's books for Little Golden Books. His magazine writing included pieces for the men's adventure magazines Saga, Stag, and Blue Book, and the more general-interest Coronet.

Date of Birth: August 22, 1919
Date of death: November 28, 2008

Tales to Astonish #64 (Feb. 1965) is Lazarus' sole public credit for hundreds of stories for Marvel Comics and its predecessors.
