2008-07-22 20:32:40 misterpace Bio Larry D. Lieber is an American comic book artist and writer, and the younger brother of Marvel Comics' writer/editor/publisher Stan Lee. Lieber is best known for scripting the first appearances of the Marvel characters Iron Man and Thor; for his long stint both writing and drawing the Marvel Western The Rawhide Kid; and for illustrating the newspaper comic strip The Amazing Spider-Man for many years. In the mid-1970s, he became editor of rival Atlas/Seaboard Comics, which spurred revolutionary changes in comics-creator rights during its brief existence.. Larry Lieber attended art school at the Pratt Institute in Brooklyn and at Manhattan's Art Students League. He then did military service with the U.S. Air Force for four years. In the early 1960s, Lieber scripted several Marvel Comics stories plotted by his brother, Stan Lee. Lieber scripting credits included early appearances of superheroes including Thor in Journey into Mystery, Iron Man in Tales of Suspense, and Ant-Man in Tales to Astonish. Lieber went on to script stories in western titles such as Rawhide Kid. In 1974, Lieber left Marvel to take on an editorship at Atlas/Seaboard, the term that comic book historians and collectors use to refer to the "Atlas Comics" line published by Seaboard Periodicals, to differentiate it from the 1950s Marvel Comics predecessor Atlas Comics. Marvel Comics founder and longtime publisher Martin Goodman had left Marvel in 1972, having sold the company in 1970, and launched this new company in June 1974 to go head-to-head with Marvel and DC Comics. He hired Lieber to be editor of the Atlas black-and-white comics-magazines, and additionally hired Warren Publishing veteran Jeff Rovin to edit the color comic-book line, which soon fell under Lieber's editorship.
