History of Curt Swan in Comic Book Art

Curt Swan's earliest public artwork was for the U.S. military G.I. magazine Stars and Stripes, where he worked while enlisted in the National Guard. It was working there where he first met writer France Hernon, who would eventually persuade him to seek employment from DC Comics.

Following the war, Swan returned home from Europe and began working for DC, he started drawing for their Boy Commandos series. After that, Swan started pencilling only, leaving the inking to other artists at the company.

He drew numerous characters for the publisher, such as Gangbusters and Tommy Tomorrow. But the self-taught artist was drawn to the Superman comics series, and began pencilling the iconic character for issue #51.

He drew for the series again for issue #76, wherein Batman joins forces to help Superman. The two would regularly fight alongside each other in the separate series, World's Finest Comics from issue #71 onwards, with Swan drawing the issues.

According to Swan, his real career breakthrough came after drawing Superman's Pal, Jimmy Olsen #1. He would also draw for similar titles related to the character, like Superman's Girlfriend, Lois Lane and Superboy. Swan would also draw Superman in series like Adventure Comics and Action Comics.

Swan is seen by many in the industry and fans alike as the definitive Superman artist. DC named Swan, among others as one of the company's honourees in their 1985 publication of The 50 Who Made DC Great.
