Dennis "Denny" O'Neil is a comic book writer and editor, principally for Marvel Comics and DC Comics in the 1970s. His best works include Green Lantern/Green Arrow and Batman with Neal Adams, The Shadow with Mike Kaluta and The Question with Denys Cowan, all of which were hailed for sophisticated stories that expanded the artistic potential of the mainstream portion of the medium. As an editor, he is principally known for editing Batman. His 1970s run on Batman is perhaps his most well known endeavour, turning Batman from the campiness of the 1960s TV show, to "The Batman", getting back to the character's darker roots and emphasizing his detective skills. This grimer and more sophisticated Dark Knight, as well as new villians such as Ra's Al Ghul, brought back Batman from the verge of pop culture oblivion. His work would influence later incarnations of Batman, from the seminal comic "Batman: The Dark Knight Returns" by Frank Miller, to the movie Batman Begins in 2005.From Booklist:
Around the same time the Batman stories appeared, Adams was involved in another ambitious attempt to make comic books grow up. He and writer O'Neil teamed Green Lantern, a faltering superhero, with a second-string character, Green Arrow, and sent them on a road trip to rediscover America (the series was launched the year after the hit movie Easy Rider) and confront such social ills as racial discrimination and pollution. In one story in this collection, Green Arrow's teen sidekick turns out to have a heroin habit; another story introduces an African American counterpart to Green Lantern (with a moderate 'fro, just slightly militant). Frequently heavy-handed, as when greedy corporate bosses crucify a long-haired environmentalist with a biblical name, the well-meaning series represents a heartfelt effort to extend the subject matter of mainstream comics and lead the way toward subtler treatment of touchy issues.
