Marie Severin started her legendary career in comic books at EC in 1949 as a colorist on her brother John Severin's work in A Moon, a Girl...Romance #9 . She worked sporadically at Atlas and outside of comics, when EC moved into black and white art in the mid 1954. Marie joined Stan Lee's bullpen in 1959. Eventually, she added penciling and inking to her credits, beginning with a Doctor Strange story in Strange Tales # 139. Marie Severin penciled or inked a number of books in the Silver Age, including Tales to Astonish, The Incredible Hulk, Submariner, X-Men, The Amazing Spider-Man, Captain Britain, Iron Man, Daredevil, Not Brand Echh, Marvel's parody book, and Kull the Conqueror, inked by her brother John Severin, are probably her most well known penciled works. She continued to work at Marvel -- in production and their Special Projects division -- until the company's bankruptcy in 1996, which prompted massive layoffs. During the late 1990s, she worked at Claypool Comics, as well as recoloring reprints of 1950s EC comics. In 2007 Marie Severin retired after suffering a stroke.
