DENNIS O’NEIL: Superman’s Two Daddies

Dennis O'Neil

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.

    Please forgive if the following seems like spamming you.

    I just posted a quite heartfelt comment in your last column. I mistakenly thought it was the most recent column.

    I am re-posting same comment here out of fear that it might be missed.

    I am sorry to hear of you receiving brickbats of such distressing degree …

    I am not sure this is the right forum to express this but I am recently rediscovering your writing after decades away. JOYFULLY rediscovering …

    There is something heartfelt I wish to say another time about the MORALITY in your writing …

    But for now, I will just say this: I tremendously appreciated your Retroactive issue of Green Lantern. (Have yet to track down WW).

    Would love more. Any chance of a mini-series?

    Bless you Denny O’Neil for all you have done to bring moral sensitivity and social awareness to the comics …

    I wonder if there is a Saint called Dorothy Day looking down on you and smiling … : – )
