History of Alex Schomburg in Comic Book Art

Alex Schomburg first began working with his brothers for the National Screen Service, producing lantern slides and working on trailers for movies in 1928. He continued working for the NSS until 1944.

While working there, Schomburg also started freelancing for Better Publications, providing interior line art for a number of their pulp magazines such as Thrilling Wonder Stories throughout the 1930s.

Schomburg proved to have a real gift for drawing anything mechanical, and publishers quickly picked up on his unique talent. Hugo Gernsback, the publisher of science-fiction magazines, had Schomburg illustrate various aviations crafts for the cover art of his title Flying Aces, as well as other electronic equipment for Radio Craft. 

In the 1940s, Schomburg began working for Timely Comics, the predecessor of Marvel Comics, serving primarily as a cover artist for titles like Captain America, the Human Torch, the Sub-Mariner and others. His first two published comic book covers were released in the same month, both in January of 1940. The first being Daring Mystery Comics #1 and the second Marvel Mystery Comics #3.

Their popularity led to Schomburg being the forerunner cover artist for all of Timely's titles up to Marvel Mystery Comics #76. During that era he was also providing cover art for titles like Exciting Comics and America's Best Comics for Pines Publications, which featured characters such as Black Terror and Fighting Yank.

Schomburg also worked on the Green Hornet Comics series for Harvey Comics. 

In the 1950s, Schomburg left the comic book industry to pursue work in science-fiction based books, magazines and astrology publications for which he continued to provide illumination artwork.

He returned to his roots in 1977 when he and several other Golden Age comic book artists reunited to collaborate on the Invaders Annual #1, written by Roy Thomas. The featured six-page chapter on the Golden Age Human Torch was penciled and inked by Schomburg.

Much art of the Golden Age was lost over time, as it wasn't seen to be of great value when it was initially produced. What has remained of Schomburg's work is of enormous value and highly sought-after today.

Schomburg won an Inkpot Award in 1985, a Lifetime Achievement Award in 1989 at the Kansas City Comic Con and a First Fandom Hall of Fame Award in 1990.

He was inducted into the Will Eisner Hall of Fame in 1999.
