Trevor Von Eeden’s comics career started in 1976, as DC’s youngest, and first Black artist. He designed the costume and drew the adventures of their very first original Black superhero: Black Lightning! After that, he worked on Batman, since “The Batman Annual #8,” which came out in 1982. He also worked on the series “Thriller” in the mid-1980’s, which has garnered an appreciative fan base, one that exists even to this day. He has written and drawn his very first graphic novel, a 240-page story of the life of Jack Johnson, the first Black Heavyweight Boxing Champion of the World. Von Eeden is currently working on his next book–The Story of Heru: the Original Hero!
