ABOUT JIM STARLIN:
Jim Starlin is an American comic book writer and artist, who has worked for Marvel Comics, DC Comics and others since the early 1970s.
Starlin was born in Detroit, Michigan, United States. After writing and drawing stories for a number of amateur fan publications, he got his break into comics working for Roy Thomas and John Romita at Marvel Comics in 1972. Starlin along with Len Wein, Marv Wolfman and Walter Simonson was part of the generation of artists and writers who arrived in comics at that time who were primarily fans of the Stan Lee/Jack Kirby “Silver Age of Comics”.
Starlin’s first job was as a finisher on pages of Spider-Man. He then drew two issues of Iron Man and was given a shot to draw an issue of a failing title Captain Marvel (issue 25). Starlin took over as plotter with the next issue and introduced the character Thanos. Starlin developed through the comic an elaborate cosmology for the Marvel Universe that was much referenced by other writers.
Starlin co-created the kung fu craze cash-in character Shang Chi and then began his most legendary work: a re-imagining of a minor Lee/Kirby creation, Adam Warlock. He developed a complex story-line with theological themes, as Adam Warlock, who had emerged from a kind of virgin birth, confronted a dictatorial Universal Church of Truth founded by his evil future self. After his departure the Captain Marvel title had again declined and Starlin was given the for the time rare opportunity to kill off the character in a graphic novel, The Death of Captain Marvel.
Most of the 1980s were taken up for Starlin scripting and drawing Dreadstar for Epic Comics (an imprint of Marvel Comics), and later for First Comics and now available in a definite re-release from Dynamite Entertainment. In the late 1980s he switched to DC Comics and wrote the Batman:A Death in the Family story arc (in which the second Robin died) and back at Marvel for the Infinity Gauntlet storyline, featuring the return of one of his best-known creations, the mad Titan Thanos.
He is currently back in „cosmic‰ form at DC Comics with the upcoming Mystery in Space series and had previously published the first Cosmic Guard mini-series with Dynamite Entertainment.
