Mike Zeck is a comic book artist who worked at Marvel and DC Comics. His comics series and covers have influenced generations of artists, from his groundbreaking six part story “Kraven’s Last Hunt,” to the Punisher Limited Series. He set the standard for the look and feel of the Punisher and has created some of the most recognizable painted images of the character.
His 12-issue series “Secret Wars” was a monumental success, and Zeck’s design for Spider-Man’s black costume is still recognizable and indelible to this day. Spider-Man wore the costume temporarily, and it still lives on in the form of the super-villain, Venom.
Many of Mike’s images and covers are still used for t-shirts, costumes and other comics-related merchandise today.
Zeck’s work has also graced the pages and covers of “Captain America,” “Master of Kung Fu,” “Aquaman,” “Batman,” “Legends of the DC Universe,” “Green Lantern,” “G.I. Joe,” “G.I. Joe: Special Missions,” “Lobo,” “Deathstroke The Terminator,” “The Eliminator,” “Damned” and many other titles.
