2007-11-06 10:41:13 misterpace Bio Jack Abel worked for many companies, beginning in the early 1950s, primarily as an inker. He was one of the main inkers on DC's 'Superman' and 'Legion of Super-Heroes' in the late 1960s and early 1970s. He pencilled horror stories for Fiction House titles like Ghost, Mr Publications' Mister Mystery and for Atlas' Journey into Mystery. For Atlas, ACG, Harvey and Prize Comics, he did inks on western, science-fiction and war stories. In the late 1950s, he was an artist for DC war titles like Our Fighting Forces, Our Army At War, Star Spangled War Stories and All-Americann Men Of War. In the 1970s, Abel moved over to Marvel, where he worked with Gene Colan on 'Iron Man', using the pseudonym Gary Michaels. He additionally worked with Colan on 'Daredevil' and 'Tomb of Dracula', and with Herb Trimpe on 'The Incredible Hulk'. He also began collaborations with other companies, such as Gold Key ('Grimm's Ghost Stories', 'The Twilight Zone', 'Mighty Samson'), Charlton ('Ghost Manor, 'Ghostly Haunts', 'Haunted', 'Midnight Tales'), Atla/Seaboard ('IronJaw', 'Morlock 2001') and Skywald ('The Heap'). He also inked John Celardo's daily 'Tales of the Green Beret' strip in 1967-69. He worked at Marvel in various positions until his death in 1996.
