KEN'S COMIC BIBLIOGRAPHY




Below is a list of comic books featuring stories upon which I contributed to in one fashion or another. The majority of assignments up until the past three years were primarily that of rendering the artwork in pencil. Lately, it seems I'm writing as much as I'm illustrating. Depending on the publisher, editor and circumstances, I sometimes handle the lettering and inking assignments as well.

For those of you browsing through these pages in curiosity who are unfamiliar with the terms, here's a brief description of the various tasks associated with the production of a comic book:


WRITER - produces a full script, describing in every panel on every page the action and characters involved, along with all captions and dialogue. However, another method involves creating nothing more than a basic plot for the artist to graphically interpret, after which the writer will then create the necessary captions and dialogue to complete the story.


PENCILLER - renders all drawings for the story in pencil. The finished work can resemble anything from the roughest of sketches to the most polished of pieces. In Hollywood terms, the penciller is simultaneously the director, cinematographer, set designer, costume designer, prop man, special effects and editor all rolled into one. A good penciller can make a poor script look terrific, while a bad one can sink a great script with hardly any trouble.


LETTERER - this person usually receives credit after the inker but is generally the next person to handle the artwork. A LETTERER hand-letters the words to be read onto the art boards. In this day and age, though, a lot more letterers are using computers and font software instead of pen and ink.


INKER - depending what the pencil artwork looks like, the inker's job can consist of anything from merely tracing over with pen & brush & ink to finish rendering a rough sketch into a highly polished illustration. If the penciller and inker are compatible in terms of their individual style, the results are usually dynamic. If not, it makes for some disappointing results.


COLORIST - creates a color guide for the artwork, indicating with the proper codes what each color is for the printer's benefit. Colorists used to work on xeroxes with color dyes, but are much more into using a computer to do their work these days.


EDITOR - the person who oversees the entire creative effort from start to finish.


Also listed are books I've worked on that have yet to see print, the majority having been completed and either awaiting to see the light of day (such as CAPTAIN HAZZARD) or consigned to oblivion (ALIEN LANDSCAPES). As any of these make their way into print, the list will be updated to relect that.
