About the Author:

Born on June 18, 1915, Robert Kanigher has long been recognized as one of the most prolific and innovative writers and editors in the comic book field. After writing for magazines, theater and radio during the 1930s, he began his comics career at Fox Features Syndicate in 1940, working on such features as Blue Beetle, Samson and the Bouncer. Hired as a scripter by DC Comics in 1946, Kanigher was quickly promoted to editor and given the responsibility of editing and scripting the iconic character Wonder Woman, whose creator and writer, William Moulton Marston, had recently died. More assignments followed, and over the next four decades Kanigher would eventually write stories for nearly every major DC character in addition to creating many new ones.
         In 1952, Kanigher became the editor on DC’s four main war titles (OUR ARMY AT WAR, OUR FIGHTING FORCES, ALL-AMERICAN MEN OF WAR, and STAR SPANGLED WAR STORIES). His run on these books — which included the introduction of Sgt. Rock, Enemy Ace, the Unknown Soldier and the Haunted Tank — would become legendary. Kanigher retired from editing in 1968, but over the next 20 years he continued to script Sgt. Rock, the Haunted Tank and countless other features in nearly every genre of the medium, ensuring his legacy as one of the most productive comic book writers ever to work in the industry. He passed away on May 6, 2002.
