Chronicles: Artist, Writer, Creator

Having written or drawn most every major title published by DC Comics and Marvel Comics, Dan Jurgens is recognized by fans everywhere as a major creative force.

Jurgens began his career with DC Comics as artist on THE WARLORD. Shortly after, he created, wrote and drew BOOSTER GOLD for DC. He continued with stints on FLASH GORDON, GREEN ARROW, and THE JUSTICE LEAGUE OF AMERICA. Most notably, he logged a ten-year run as writer/artist on SUPERMAN, including the best-selling Death of Superman for which he won the National Cartoonists Society Award for Best in Comic Book Division. Jurgens followed up with the mega-hit crossover ZERO HOUR, which redefined the DC Universe.

He moved to Marvel Comics and launched a new Spider-Man series, THE SENSATIONAL SPIDER-MAN. Jurgens then logged seven years writing THE MIGHTY THOR and also wrote and drew CAPTAIN AMERICA.

In 2005 Jurgens moved into the world of book publishing to write and illustrate You Can Draw Marvel Characters for Dorling Kindersley Publishing.

Jurgens has since returned to DC Comics where he helped relaunch, write and draw BOOSTER GOLD, which he first created in 1985. He moved on to write and draw TIME MASTERS: VANISHING POINT and revisit the Death of Superman in DC UNIVERSE: LEGACIES. In 2011, Dan returned to writing and drawing BOOSTER GOLD in order to make it part of a very special storyline involving the entire universe of DC characters.

As part of DC Comics’ major NEW 52 launch, Dan was heavily involved in two projects. He started with JUSTICE LEAGUE INTERNATIONAL, which focused on a team of global heroes serving as earth’s protectors. The team was lead by Dan’s creation, Booster Gold. In addition, Dan drew the newly launched GREEN ARROW series, featuring a dramatic new vision of DC’s Emerald Archer. Dan followed that up with a return to the SUPERMAN and FIRESTORM titles, which he wrote and drew.

In 2014, Dan will be one of the artists and writers on DC Comics’ dynamic new weekly series, NEW 52: FUTURES END, which explores both the present and future of the DC Universe of stars. Dan also launches a new series for DC called AQUAMAN & THE OTHERS, featuring Aquaman and the enigmatic new group of heroes simply known as The Others.

PROFESSIONAL HIGHLIGHTS

ALWAYS BE COLORING

In 1994, after a three-year stint as an English Major at New York University, he moved to Los Angeles, armed with half a degree and a full measure of debt. There, he learned how to color comics from his Award Winning brother, Steve Buccellato. Not to say that Steve isn’t worthy of winning one for brotherhood, but his award was for Coloring (Wizard Fan Award 1996).

His first professional work was in the Marvel/DC Crossover PUNISHER/BATMAN (1994), colored in Photoshop 2.5. He then worked with Steve on a slew of high-profile books, including UNCANNY X-MEN, GENERATION X, and ASTRO CITY, before striking out on his own as a freelance colorist. Brian has worked as a freelance colorist since 1996, working for Marvel, DC, Vertigo, Top Cow, Image and Dynamite Entertainment. His recent coloring credits include Adventure Comics, Hellblazer, Superman and The Flash.

But coloring is not the whole story, kids. Let’s take it back to 1995…

ACTING! (or MY PHANTOM MENACE)

After a year in Los Angeles, Brian felt the call of Hollywood. Three months into ridiculous method acting classes, he began auditioning. His perseverance netted him a handful of indie flicks and a middling agent who specialized in Latino talent. Rumor has it that he even won a Filipino-American acting award for his heroic death as gangbanger, “JOEY,” of the widely feared VIPERS fictional street gang. But ultimately, Brian (came to his senses and) got sick of going out for gang banger roles in scripts that he felt he could write better. He returned to his English major roots, devoured a bazillion books on screenwriting and began throwing words down on the page like crazy. Somewhere in the middle of all that, he actually picked up a few writing skills.

A NEW (WRITING) HOPE

It was during this time that he met Tim Story, who would go on to direct such studio films as Barbershop, Fantastic Four (I and II) and Think Like A Man (March 2012). Brian developed a friendship with Tim, becoming a member of THE STORY COMPANY as a frequent collaborator, ghostwriter and sometimes assistant to Tim. Among the original screenplays that Brian wrote for the Story Company, are the in-development ONCE UPON A TIME IN THE GHETTO, INVASION, and QUIK & E-Z.

WRITING COMICS (or GONNA FLY NOW)

ROCKY ONE

While working for Top Cow Productions in 2004, Brian tried his hand at writing for comics. He scripted some BATTLE OF THE PLANETS, and wrote a single issue of DARKNESS (vol.2 #21 – penciled by Francis Manapul). He also wrote dialogue for Witchblade Manga, and co-wrote ORIUS for the Dabel Brothers Imprint. But despite giving what seemed like a noble effort, he was NOT awarded with the World Heavyweight Championship Belt… for writing comics.

ROCKY TWO

Fast forward to 2011…   after more than a dozen years, Brian was still coloring comics and still writing spec screenplays. But all that time in training paid off. One day Brian got a call from pal/artistic collaborator, Francis Manapul, who offered him the chance to co-write a little book for the DC NEW52. It was called (and is still called) THE FLASH. Brian accepted the challenge, rose to the occasion, and finally kicked Apollo Creed’s ass.

ROCKY THREE – SIX

Currently in production. The roles of Ivan Drago, Tommy Gunn, and Mason Dixon are still up for grabs…
