History of Wayne Boring in Comic Book Art

Wayne Boring was a comic book artist who graduated from the Minnesota School of Art and the Chicago Art Institute. He started his professional career in 1937, ghosting for the Jerry Siegel-Joe Schuster Studio where he would draw for other artists without being credited.

The following year, National Allied Publications created the character of Superman in Action Comics #1 with Boring ghost drawing the character. The character was so popular that he soon had his own spin-off comic strip, with Boring being credited as one of the artists.

Boring became the primary penciller on the series and was partnered up with inker Stan Kaye, whom he would collaborate with for the next several decades. While working for National Comics, formerly known as National Allied Publications, Boring also worked for their rival Novelty Press's Blue Bolt Comics, publishing his artwork under the name Jack Harmon. 

He continued to be the primary penciller on the Superman comic book throughout the 1950s before Curt Swan succeeded him in the 1960s. However, he would return sporadically as a guest artist. Many critics credit Boring as the artist who defined the look of one of the most popular superhero characters of all time at the peak of their popularity. 

In 1967, Boring was fired from DC Comics over disputes regarding demands for health and retirement benefits, along with many other prominent artists and writers. Boring began ghosting backgrounds for Hal Foster's Prince Valiant Sunday Comic Strip, as well as providing the artwork for writer Sam Leff's United Feature Syndicate comic strip Davy Jones until 1971. 

Boring also drew three issues of Captain Marvel for Marvel Comics, before leaving the industry to work part-time as a bank security guard, although he would continue to draw commissioned work 

In the mid 1980s he briefly returned to DC Comics to pencil several stories for issues like Action Comics #561 Superman #402, and All-Star Squadron Annual #3. 

Boring was among the artists listed in DC's 50th anniversary publication Fifty Who Made DC Great. In 2007, he was inducted into the Will Eisner Hall of Fame.
