DENNIS O’NEIL: On The Road Again

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.

    Oh, I figure we're all cool as long as the columns and news items are about pop culture in general, with occasional emphasis on comics. And ON THE ROAD definitely qualifies as pop culture. (Let the CM 2.0 people worry about being "all about comics"…) I read the book in college, and it didn't make that lasting an impression on me except I wanted to write like that for about a month or so, just like every time I watch Guys & Dolls I wind up talking all Damon Runyon-like for a couple hours. Kerouac's cadence flowed like water, it was quite a nifty experience reading it. But I do recall thinking "goodness, but men were ever so much freer in those days than women, weren't they" all the way through…
