Happy Birthday: Hilary Barta
Born in 1957, Hilary Barta began his comic book career in 1982 when he was hired at Marvel to help ink The Defenders #108. In 1984 he moved to First Comics to ink Warp, and slowly graduated to penciling as well. In 1988, after work for Eclipse, Marvel, and First, Barta launched both Marvel’s What The—?! and DC’s Plastic Man.
He has penciled and inked many other books for Marvel, DC, Malibu Comics, Image Comics, Bongo Comics, Dark Horse, and others. He’s best known for his slightly surreal, humorous style, which you’ll be seeing on several upcoming Munden’s Bar stories!
