Collection: Michael Kaluta

Michael Kaluta began working in comics doing backup features, but soon graduated to doing covers, frontispieces and stories for DC’s mystery magazines, sometimes alternating covers with Bernie Wrightson. After Web of Horror, Kaluta won fame illustrating the first six issues of DC’s The Shadow, including collaborating with Wrightson on the third issue. Also, for DC, Kaluta collaborated with Len Wein on an adaptation of Edgar Rice Burroughs’ Carson of Venus, and with Marv Wolfman on Spawn of Frankenstein. His greatest artistic achievement is Starstruck, a humorous space opera done in collaboration with writer Elaine Lee, published in Heavy Metal Magazine, its own stand-alone book for Marvel’s Epic line, and continuing today at IDW. Among his recent assignments is a new illustrated edition of Edgar Rice Burroughs’ A Princess of Mars for IDW. Kaluta’s work has been honored with a Spectrum Grand Master Award, and in 2010, he was voted into the Will Eisner Hall of Fame.
