Description

Please note that the content of this book primarily consists of articles available from Wikipedia or other free sources online. Francis Chuck Patton is an African American comic book artist and animator. He is best known in comics circles for his work on DC Comics' Justice League of America in the 1980s, specifically for the period in which the team relocated to Detroit, Michigan, and was staffed with new, multicultural super-heroes. With writer Gerry Conway, Patton created Gypsy and Vibe, as well as redesigning Vixen and Steel: The Indestructible Man. A self-taught comics artist (although with a degree in art), Patton's influences included Jos Luis Garc a-L pez, John Buscema, Gil Kane, Neal Adams, and Dick Giordano. Although interested in journalism, Patton was enticed into a comics career in large part thanks to Giordano by then a top executive at DC. Patton broke into comics in 1983, penciling a brief run of The Creeper back-up stories in The Flash.show more
