I first came across Jerry's work in the pages of ALL STAR SQUADRON. He came on the book in the mid-Eighties after Rick Buckler had moved on; he stayed for several years, co-creating with Roy Thomas INFINITY, INC. Jerry also inked George Perez' work on the CRISIS maxi-series. He then settled into a long run on the SUPERMAN books, including the famous "Death of Superman" storyline. Jerry also did beautiful work on THE POWER OF SHAZAM, writing, plotting, and/or illustrating every issue from 1994 thru 1999. This monthly series began with a fully-painted graphic novel of the same name. If you have never read it, you should. It is beautifully done re-telling of the origin of the original Captain Marvel.
Happy Birthday, Jerry Ordway!
