History of Dick Ayers in Comic Book Art

Dick Ayers graduated from the New York City's Cartoonists and Illustrators School in 1947 and began pencilling Western stories for A-1 Comics and Prize Comics, among a few others.

Ayers and writer Ray Krank created the character Ghost Rider, a horror/western style character who first appeared in Tim Holt #11 in 1949. Ayers co-creation would be the inspiration for Marvel's later version of the similar-looking character with the same name during in 1960s.

In 1952, he began freelancing for Atlas Comics, drawing horror series for them such as Adventures into Terror, Astonishing Tales, Journey into Mystery, Journey into Unknown Worlds, Menace, Mystery Tales, Mystic, Strange Tales, and Uncanny Tales.

Although Ayers did not pencil many superhero themed stories, he would draw the Golden Age Human Torch occasionally.

In the 1960s, Ayers served as Jack Kirby's secondary inker, behind Christopher Rule, inking dozens of cover art and stories on series like The Fantastic Four and and many of the aforementioned suspense and science-fiction series. Ayers also inked some key first appearances in the mid-1960's such as Ant-Man, Sgt. Fury and His Howling Commandos and several of Thor's earliest appearances.

Ayers would also assume artistic duties for Jack Kirby after he left the series Sgt. Fury and His Howling Commandos from issue #8, onward for what would be a 10-year run of almost every issue consecutively until issue #120.

In both 1967 and 1968 he won an Alley Award for Best War Title for Sgt. Fury and His Howling Commandos.

In 1985, Ayers won the National Cartoonists Society Award for Best Comic Book. He was inducted into the Wille Eisner Hall of Fame in 2007 and then into the Inkwell Awards Joe Sinnott Hall of Fame in 2013.
