Golden Age Artist...
Jack Katz is an American comic book artist and writer, painter and art teacher best known for his graphic novel, "The First Kingdom," a 24-issue epic he began during the era of underground comix. Katz began working for comic-book publishers in the 1940s, when he was only around 16 years of age, during the Golden Age of Comic Books. His career in commercial work is a veritable who’s who. Katz worked for Jerry Iger Studio, King Features, Standard Comics, Jack Kirby and Joe Simon’s Studio, Timely Comics, Fiction House, Warren, Skywald and DC. When Jack finally decided to go independent, he wrote, penciled and inked his opus, "The First Kingdom" initially with Comics & Comix Co. from 1974 to 1977 and then with Bud Plant, a Comics & Comix co-founder. The final 24th issue was published in 1986. A recently discovered series of letters between Jack Katz and Will Eisner indicates Katz may have been the originator of the "graphic novel," as a term and certainly in practice, even if his work was initially released in a serialized form. Two more installments were added to "The First Kingdom" when it was issued as a hardcover reprint in six volumes by Titan Publishing in 2013. Katz has just completed a 500 page follow up he calls "Beyond the Beyond."

LORENZO De VERA
(IN HIS OWN WORDS) I started earlier as a Nestor Redondo Associates whom I considered as my great mentor. During that time we do and help him penciling many of his visuals sketches of his short stories and novels to meet his deadlines for the publications.
When Nestor Redondo established his own comics publication I was given a chance to do my own penciling and inking of my own jobs assignments several short stories and novels by famous novelist in our place. Later my hard works paid o my comics illustrations have been published on several prestige publications.
When I came to America 1982 its was extreme recession. I work as helper for Hector Vecina an Argentinian Hispanic illustrator doing penciling and inking his cowboy short novel series projects in a small Hispanic publication in Brooklyn. I do help also Danny Bulanadi on his inking of his several Marvel and DC projects.
When I relocate to Chicago I received a letter from Marvel that my sample was approved but I didn't pursue it for money security reason because I was working already in house doing religious books and illustrative comics.
Later like Tony Zuniga my friend I try advertising at the same time doing Freelancing illustrating some short graphic novel love stories. on several publica- tions. Lately I do project from Kingston Religious comics Publications and others. Doing super heroes pinups commission and attending comics conventions makes me busy now a days.
