And, today is also Writer Marv Wolfman's Birthday, May 13th. If you are a fan of comics, you know this amazing writers work. Marv is a comic book and novelization writer. He worked on Marvel Comics's The Tomb of Dracula, for which he and artist Gene Colan created Blade the vampire-slayer, and DC Comics's The New Teen Titans and the Crisis on Infinite Earths limited series with George Pérez."-wikipedia
Marv started writing because of his love of comics, "it's amazing to realize that so many of my creations have made it into other media. Fact is, I've been told that I've created more characters that have been adapted into movies, TV, toys, games and animation than any other comics writer except Stan Lee".
"The New Teen Titans, which I co-created with artist George Pérez back in 1980, was a major hit on the Cartoon Network for five seasons then returned as Teen Titans Go! and has become an even greater success. Although different from our comic, aimed more at the younger crowd than the high school/college age audience we were aiming at, it still features our characters, Starfire, Cyborg and Raven and so many others."-Marv's website
This portrait was taken at an after comic-con get together at Author Raymond Feist's house, a number of years ago. This gathering was at the time a yearly get together, and was one of the hot tickets, I was excited to be invited. I remember setting up and pretty much shooting for a good part of the evening and meeting so many amazing writers and artists. I am not sure if this yearly event is still ongoing, if it is, and you manage to score an invitation, it is not to be missed!
Happy Birthday Marv!
