About Bill Gaines

Bill Gaines was born in 1922. His impact on American comics and magazines cannot be overstated. After his father, Maxwell Gaines, passed away in 1947, Bill took over running EC Comics and its stable of horror, science-fiction, satire, and war comics. He and Al Feldstein collaborated on Tales from the Crypt, The Vault of Horror, Shock SuspenStories, and Weird Science. Gaines testified before the Senate Subcommittee on Juvenile Delinquency in 1954. After EC Comics went out of business, Bill Gaines started Mad magazine, which remained as popular as it was controversial for decades. He passed away at the age of 70 in 1992 and was posthumously inducted into the Will Eisner Hall of Fame. Johnny Craig was an American comic book artist born in 1926. A veteran of World War II, Craig got his start in comics as an assistant to Harry Lampert, cocreator of the Flash. After the war he worked as a penciler and inker at EC Comics. Before EC's collapse after the United States Senate Subcommittee on Juvenile Delinquency hearings, Craig was best known for his work on The Vault of Horror and Crime SuspenStories. He passed away in 2001 and was inducted into the Will Eisner Hall of Fame in 2005. Mike Richardson is the president and founder of Dark Horse Comics, the award-winning international publishing house he founded in 1986. He is also the president of Dark Horse Entertainment, for which he has produced numerous projects for film and television. In addition to producing films such as R.I.P.D., Hellboy, and Mystery Men, he has also produced films based on several of his own creations, including The Mask and Timecop. Richardson owns a successful pop-culture retail chain, Things From Another World, with stores stretching from Universal's CityWalk in Los Angeles to his hometown in Milwaukie, Oregon. Richardson has written numerous graphic novels and comics series, as well as Comics: Between the Panels and Blast Off!, two critically acclaimed books about pop culture. He lives with his wife, Karie, and their dog in Lake Oswego, Oregon.
