Bob Wiacek has enjoyed a long and diverse career!
Inked Mike Grell on The Legion of Super Heroes #220 and Al Milgrom on Marvel Presents #7-The Guardians of the Galaxy for Marvel. From that time on I’ve inked every major title for Marvel which include The X-Men, Spider-Man, Thor, Iron Man, Captain America, Hulk, She Hulk, Man-Thing, Star Wars, Silver Surfer, Fantastic Four just to name a few. At DC I worked on Superman, Batman, Green Lantern, Brave and the Bold, The Ray, Batman Family, Justice Society, Shazam and Challengers of the Unknown which is a small sampling as well. As far as independent publishers I did work for Dark Horse, Image, Relium Media, Archie and Valiant where I worked on Archer and Armstrong, Bloodshot and Solar.
Worked with many great talents such as Stan Lee, Steve Ditko, Gene Colan, John and Sal Buscema, Walter Simonson, Frank Miller, Barry Windsor-Smith, George Perez, Jerry Ordway, Paul Smith, Dave Cockrum, John Byrne, Don Heck, Ron Garney, June Brigman, Colleen Doran plus many others.
