Jim Steranko bio



Jim Steranko (1938-) Born in Reading, Pennsylvania, Steranko an escape artist, stage magician, advertising art director and guitarist for a rock n' roll band before delving into comics. His first published work appeared in Spyman #1 for Harvey Comics. By the late 1960s, he took over the Nick Fury feature in Marvel's Strange Tales. Steranko was a bold experimenter, infusing Surrealism, Pop Art, Op Art and montage effects into his stories. He combined a dynamic drawing style with carefully composed layouts and panel sequences. This culminated in his breathtaking work in both Nick Fury, Tower and Captain America, While his time in comics was relatively brief, Steranko is regarded as one of the great innovators.
