History of John Romita Sr in Comic Book Art

John Romita Sr. got his start in the comic book industry working for Forbes Lithograph out of New York City in 1949 working as an inker. Some of the company's work came from Timely Comics, which gave Romita an opportunity to meet Stan Lee, the company's editor-in-chief.

Romita began working for Timely, drawing for a variety of series like Captain America, Menace and Jungle Tales.

In 1958, Romita left Timely to go work for DC Comics, where he pencilled on several romance titles like Secret Hearts, Heart Throbs, Young Love, Falling in Love and Girls' Romance among others.

In 1965, Romita returned to work for Atlas, although now it had become Marvel Comics. He worked as an inker for Jack Kirby, starting with issue #23 of Avengers. The following year Romita then began a brief run on the Daredevil series, beginning with issue #12, as well as working sporadically on series like The Incredible Hulk, Captain America, Tales to Astonish and Tales of Suspense.

His real breakthrough success however came when he succeeded Steve Ditko's artistic duties on The Amazing Spider-Man, following issue #38. The Amazing Spider-Man had been Marvel's second best-selling title at the time of Romita's takeover and within a year of his succession, it became their number one, surpassing the place of the Fantastic Four.

In his initial run on The Amazing Spider-Man, Romita drew over 50 covers, almost every layout and the full pencil-art for 56 issues. 

In 1973, Romita was promoted to be Marvel's art director and he used that position to design a whole host of new characters such as the Punisher, Wolverine, Luke Cage, Bullseye, Tigra and Brother Voodoo.

In 1979, he received an Inkpot Award and in 2002 he was inducted into the Will Eisner Hall of Fame. In 2020, he was inducted into the Inkwell Awards Joe Sinnott Hall of Fame.
