About Me, David Marshall
As a kid in Springfield Massachusetts, I collected and traded Marvel comics from the Silver Age. I got hooked by the powerful yet flawed heroes and dramatic situations. Eventually I followed certain creators. Stan Lee and Jack Kirby were my first, then Steve Ditko, Wally Wood, John Buscema, Marie Severin, Joe Sinnott, Frank Giacoia and Artie Simek.
By high school, I was better at drawing and analyzing comic books than anything else. Studying comics history for my Senior Degree Project at Massachusetts College of Art exposed me to the work of George Herriman, Roy Crane, Alex Toth, Milton Caniff, Curt Swan and more! This foundation eventually led to my first published credits.
There’s more to my story, but I’d rather take Steve Ditko’s lead and let my comics do the talking. Thanks for sticking around this long; the best is yet to come.
— Dave M!, giving you all I’ve got.
