Weird War Tales; About our Contributors: Richard
grew up in Sunflower, Kansas, a housing development across the
road from the Sunflower Ordinance plant, which produced bombs
during World War Two. As a youngster, Corben played with toy
soldiers and tanks, read SUPERMAN, Tales From the Crypt, Two
Fisted Tales, and Frontline Combat, and drew his own
comics about his dog Trail. As a teenager, Corben moved with
his family to Kansas City, where he drew comics about the siege
of Troy and the adventures of Ulysses. Today, Corben still draws
comics, but the conflicts range from ancient history, to inner
city ghettos, to far-flung universes.
Simon Revelstroke was recently declared persona non grata by the Miskatonic University Libarary for having destroyed their sole surviving copy of The Necronomicon. His graphic credits include Bloodstar, Den: Dreams and Elements, and that epic of good taste The Bodyssey. His favourite military actions include the standoff at Rorke's Drift, Doolittle's raid on Tokyo; and his own ongoing battle with Richard Corben over the use of the word "gibbous".
