    Has probably added more history to the Superman universe than any other artist in DC history. Easily considered one of the top comic book artists of all time!

    Based on work he did for the U.S. Army publication Stars and Stripes, DC editor Mort Weisinger gave Curt Swan his first assignment on Boy Commandos in 1945. He worked on many comics for DC Comics during the 1950s, but was best known as their top cover artist. He was the primary artist on Superman comics for 30 years.
