Dennis O’Neil: Who Are You?

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.

  1. There is a balance to it, Denny. Can I call you Denny? As an artist, writer, and co-founder of a small publishing team? It’s all about balance. We have to learn to grow and hone our craft with each subsequent book. We have to spend time promoting ourselves and gaining fans. While we’d love nothing better than to do it full time, we also have families, day jobs, and lives beyond the comic passion.

    And to be fair? We never thought any amount of what we do would result in us “getting work”. Years of doing this has taught us that we have to make our own luck. If it leads to someone giving us a chance? All the better. If nothing ever comes of it? We’ll always have had the hundreds of fans we reached on our own.
