Greetings my comic book loving Legions, it’s time to bow our heads once more as the news about the legendary scribe Dennis “Denny” O’Neill passing away is making the rounds. An official statement from DC Comics is presented beneath the photo and then I will offer up some personal insight. Mr. O’Neill was 81 years old.
From DC Comics:
DC is deeply saddened by the loss of our longtime friend and industry legend, Dennis “Denny” O’Neil.
Denny began his professional career as a reporter in Missouri, and it was a series of articles he wrote in the mid-1960s about the comic book industry that caught the attention of Marvel editor Roy Thomas. Denny soon started writing for comics, and in 1968 he contributed his first stories to DC. Denny quickly became one of the company’s most influential contributors, writing six or seven stories a month.
