History of Gene Colan in Comic Book Art

Gene Colan began his professional career in 1944, illustrating the aviation-adventure series, Wings Comics published under Fiction House.

In 1946, Colan went to work for Timely Comics, where he published his first ever cover art for issue #72 of Captain America Comics as well as the final issue of the run Captain America Comics #75.

A downturn in the industry led to Timely laying off the bulk of their staff in 1948, including Colan, who began freelancing for National Comics. The publisher would later be renamed DC Comics and Colan provided illustrations for army series like All-American Men at War, Captain Storm and Our Army at War.

In the early 1950s, Colan tried his take on the popular character, Sub-Mariner, whom he featured in Tales to Astonish and also took over the artwork for Don Heck's Iron Man in Tales of Suspense.

Colan started working for Marvel Comics in the 1960s and was seen as the premiere artist of the publication's Silver Age, illustrating an array of their most popular superheroes form Captain America to Doctor Strange and of course his signature character, Daredevil.

Colan would also step outside the superhero genre illustrating for series like The Tomb of Dracula, Howard the Duck and horror series outside of Marvel like Creepy and Eerie for Warren Publishing.  

In 1981, Colan returned to DC Comics to be the primary artist for Detective Comics and Batman from 1981-1986. Colan has won several awards over his career, winning an Eagle Award for Favourite Comci Book in 1977 and 1978 for Howard the Duck.

He has also won an Eisner Award for Best Single Issue for Captain America #601 and was inducted into the Will Eisner Hall of Fame in 2005.
