Literary Editor. He was a pioneering force in the "Silver Age" revival of the comic book industry in the 1950s when he introduced new versions of "The Flash," "Green Lantern" and many other characters for DC Comics. He was also the editor of "Batman" and "Superman" comic books where he introduced the "new look" to Batman in 1964 and toned down Superman's other worldliness and added new realism to his adventures in the 1970s. He began as a fan magazine editor, founding Solar Sales literary agency in 1934 and representing science fiction authors such as Robert Bloch and Ray Bradbury. His autobiography, "Man of Two Worlds: My Life in Science Fiction and Comics" (co-written by Brian M. Thompsen) was published by Harper Entertainment in 2000. (bio by: Armand Vaquer)
