DENNIS O’NEIL: One Upon A Time

Dennis O'Neil

Dennis O'Neil was born in 1939, the same year that Batman first appeared in Detective Comics. It was thus perhaps fated that he would be so closely associated with the character, writing and editing the Dark Knight for more than 30 years. He's been an editor at Marvel and DC Comics. In addition to Batman, he's worked on Spider-Man, Daredevil, Iron Man, Superman, Wonder Woman, Green Lantern/Green Arrow, the Question, The Shadow and more. O'Neil has won every major award in the industry. His prose novels have been New York Times bestsellers. Denny lives in Rockland County with his wife, Marifran.

    Give my best to Jack, Denny. He was my first editor at D.C. in '78. His appearances at Cons these days are rare to fleeting and much missed.

    Thanks, Denny (and Hi to Bo and Mike). I always like to think that if you ever pass by Arkham, and if you sneak onto the grounds and took a peek at the ancient cornerstone, you'd see my name etched in behind a growth of weeds. Thanks, Denny, for trimming them so the inscription can be finally read at last! –JCH

    I'll be darned. Wa-a-a-a-a-ay back in the day, probably 1970 or 1971, when I was in the 4th grade, my friends and I, the self-proclaimed "Comics Club" wrote to the DC offices, doubtless professing our undying loyalty and we received a post card in the mail signed by Jack C. Harris. My best friend still has the card. I need to get him to scan it or something so I can have a piece of it, too.
