History of Dick Giordano in Comic Book Art

Dick Giordano got his professional start with Charlton Comics in 1952, working as a freelance artist. Giordano began working on Western and army titles like Billy the Kid, Wyatt Earp and Fightin' Army by providing the various series with cover art.

By the mid-sixties, Giordano was promoted to executive editor of Charlton and revamped several of the publisher's past superhero characters for a new line he called Action Hero.

In 1968, Giordano left Charlton to become editor of DC Comics, and was given series like Aquaman, Teen Titans and Young Love. He launched a new original horror series called The Witching Hour in 1969, and a second instalment of the Western series, All-Star Western the following year.

In terms of his artistry, Giordano is best known for his ink work, often collaborating with famous penciller Neal Adams. Throughout the 1970's the two worked together on titles like Batman and Green Lantern/Green Arrow. Giordano did pencil for two issues of Wonder Woman, issues #202-#203. He also drew several backup stories for Action Comics and The Deadly Hands of Kung-Fu.

Giordano was seen as the go cover artist for DC at the time, and regularly contributed cover art for Detective Comics and Superman. He also inked the first ever DC/Marvel crossover story Superman vs. The Amazing Spider-Man in 1976. Giordano was among several artist who worked on the double-sized Justice League of America #200 in 1982, as well as for Wonder Woman #300.

In 1984, he was promoted to Vice-President/Executive Editor of DC and during this time he oversaw the relaunch of every major DC superhero for the new limited series, Crisis on Infinite Earths.

Following that he oversaw Frank Miller's Batman: The Dark Knight Returns and Dave Gibbon's The Watchmen. Giordano would also do the inking for Crisis on Infinite Earths and for John Byrne's The Man of Steel.

He is the recipient of the Alley Award for Best Editor in 1969, the Shazam Award for Best Inker in 1970, the Goethe Award for Favourite Pro Editor in 1971 and an Inkpot Award in 1981.

In 2009, he was given the Inkwell Award and the Joe Sinnott Hall of Fame Award.
