History of Don Heck in Comic Book Art

Don Heck began his comic book career working for Harvey Comics in 1949. He would also freelance for Quality Comics, Hillman Comics and Toby Press, until he met Stan Lee and began working for Atlas Comics in 1954.

HIs first published work for Atlas was a five-page horror story entitled Werewolf Beware, which was featured in Mystery Tales #25. Heck would contribute to a variety of comics in the genres of war, fantasy, science-fiction and Western. However, he made his name known in 1959 by providing the cover art for Tales of Suspense #1, one of only a handful of Atlas/Marvel covers not drawn by the legendary Jack Kirby.

Following that Heck became synonymous with Atlas/Marvel's fantasy and science-fiction titles like Strange Tales, Tales to Astonish, Strange Worlds, World of Fantasy and Journey into Mystery. He would occasionally contribute to romance titles as well, such as Love Romances and My Own Romance.

Heck has also been credited as the designer of Iron Man, who first appeared in issue #39 of Tales of Suspense as well as The Mandarin, an arch nemesis of Iron Man who first appeared in Tales of Suspense #50.

He later would take over the drawing duties for Kirby on the series The Avengers with issue #9. Heck and Lee introduced the character of Wonder Man in 1964 via the series, as well as Count Nefaria with issue #13.

Heck continued to pencil the series and would often do the inking as well through to issue #40. He returned to the series one final time to pencil and co-plot issue #45. Heck also created the supervillain the Swordsman, who would eventually become a superhero.

During the 1960s he also worked on series like The X-Men, The Amazing Spider-Man, Captain Marvel, Iron Man, Chamber of Darkness and Tower of Shadow. 

In the 1970s Heck moved over to DC Comics and began working on House of Secrets #85. His first superhero artwork for DC was with issue #198 of The Flash. He also pencilled for Wonder Woman #204.

By the mid-seventies, Heck was occasionally drawing for Marvel again on series like Daredevil, Ghost Rider, Sub-Mariner, and The Avengers.
