Happy Birthday: Nat Gertler
Born in 1965, Nat Gertler started in comics as a translation writer, working on the English language adaptation of Speed Racer for Now Comics back in 1988.
He wrote contributions to Warp Graphics’ ElfQuest and to Calibur Comics’ Negative Burn in the 1990s, and then founded About Comics, a small comic book publishing company whose focus has been on quality rather than quantity.
Gertler published his own miniseries, The Factor, through About, and garnered an Eisner Award nomination for it in 1999.
He also created the 24 Hour Comics Day event, edited a variety of comic books and nonfiction books, and has written not only comic books but fiction, nonfiction, television scripts, and video games.
