(?   -    ) US Comics authority who wrote the Taylor History of Comics nonfiction series for the Taylor Publishing Company in the 1990s. Though some are relatively brief at 144-150pp, these heavily illustrated works contain considerable information on the history of the various genres and creators of comics in the US during most of the twentieth century. Horror Comics: The Illustrated History (1991) and Science Fiction Comics: The Illustrated History (1992) are perhaps of the most direct relevance to sf. More than one volume deals with the portrayals of Superheroes at different times since their creation in the 1930s [see Checklist below], with Superhero Comics: The Illustrated History (1991) providing an overview.
