Al’s earliest known credited comic-book work is as penciler-inker of the Dynamic Man and Major Victory superhero features and Green Knight medieval-adventure story in Dynamic Publications' Dynamic Comics #2 (1941) followed by work for Timely / Marvel on Captain America, The Patriot, Sub-Mariner and The Vision. With the outbreak of World War II, Plastino and his brothers were drafted, and he served in the U.S. Army. There, a sketch he had made for a model airplane he had designed caught an officer's attention, leading to his being assigned to Grumman Aerospace Corporation, the National Inventors Council and then the Pentagon. He was assigned there to the Adjutant General's office, where he designed war posters and field manuals. After his discharge he began working for Steinberg Studios, drawing Army posters. In 1948 he was brought into DC Comics by Superman editor Mort Weisenger, where he became one of the core artists for the Superman family of comics. He was the co-creator on characters such as Supergirl, The Legion of Superheroes (Cosmic Boy, Lightning Lad, Saturn Girl), Bizarro Superman, Braniac, The Parasite, Krypto The Super Dog and Mr. Mxyzptlk.
These days, its rest and relaxation for the 93 year old who loves to fish and golf. He spends as much time as he can with his wife, 4 children and 6 grandchildren. Occasionally he’ll hear from an old friend and artist but those calls get fewer and fewer as Al slowly becomes the last of his kind from the golden age of comics. He speaks with mixed emotions of the art he has become famous for: “ I really wanted to be a fine artist. I love to paint with watercolors and oils. Landscapes are my favorite subject matter and it is usually of places like Smith Point and other areas on Long Island — my home for 55 years. Al retired from the comics in 1990 and pursued his first love for painting. His work has and continues to be displayed at Galleries on Long Island and New York. I get a great deal of satisfaction when a letter or email arrives from a fan or I meet someone in person and they tell me how much they enjoyed my work and how it has influenced them. Knowing I have helped to inspire others and the fact that they can recognize the craftsmanship of the art, to me, is the greatest honor anyone could receive.”
Nick's early work included Fight Comics, Jungle Comics, Kaanga Comics, and Wings for Fiction House Publications, "Lady Luck" in Will Eisner's Spirit Section and "Quicksilver" in National Comics. Nick served in WW II, where he earned two Purple Hearts and designed the 66th Infantry Division patch, the snarling black panther logo. Upon his return after the war he begin doing advertising art, and soon landed the assignment of drawing the daily Tarzan comic strip and also worked on Warren Tufts' comic strip Casey Ruggles. In 1950, Cardy began his decades-long association with DC Comics, starting with Gang Busters and working on The Legend of Daniel Boone, Congo Bill, House of Mystery, House of Secrets and more. During the 1950's he also worked for Standard Comics drawing many horror and romance comics. He began developing his breakout reputation with Tomahawk at DC and from 1962–1968 drew the first 39 issues of Aquaman and all its covers through the final issue (#56).
Nick first drew the Teen Titans in The Brave and the Bold #60 (Wonder Girl's first appearance), as well as the follow up in Showcase. From 1966-73, Cardy penciled or inked — sometimes both — all 43 issues of the Teen Titans series. In 1968-69, he drew the quirky Western series Bat Lash. During this time he also assisted artist Al Plastino on the Batman syndicated comic strip. From the early to mid-1970's he was the primary cover artist for DC Comics, providing covers for the likes of Superman, Action Comics, The Brave and the Bold, Batman, Flash, Ghosts, Witching Hour, Secret Origins, Jimmy Olsen, World's Finest and the various 100 Page Giant comics.
In the mid 1970's he left comics to work in commercial art doing magazine art and ad illustrations, including movie advertising art (though not necessarily the "one-sheet" posters) for films including The Street Fighter (1974), The Night They Robbed Big Bertha's (1975), Neil Simon's California Suite (1978), Stanley Donen's Movie Movie (1978), Martin Ritt's Casey's Shadow (1978), and Francis Ford Coppola's Apocalypse Now (1979). Nick also did some work on the original "classic" Star Wars poster (1977), on which he added the droids (R2D2 and C3PO) to the poster image.

Dave was one of the artists featured in the first issue of 2000 AD in 1977. He was one of the most prolific of 2000 AD's earliest creators, with highlights including Dan Dare, Ro-Busters, Rogue Trooper and Tharg's Future Shocks. In the late 1970's Dave became the lead artist on Doctor Who, which he drew the main story from #1 until #69, missing only four issues during that time. In the early 1980's, Dave began working with DC Comics on titles including Green Lantern, The Flash, Legion of Super-Heroes, Superman, Who's Who in the DC Universe and more. While Marvel Comics reprinted his Doctor Who work, Eclipse Comics reprinted some of his Warrior work and Eagle reprinted various Judge Dredd tales, Gibbons continued to produce new work almost exclusively for DC throughout the 1980s working on Superman, Green Lantern and of course Watchmen. Watchmen has since gone on to become one of the best-selling graphic novels of all time and spawned a feature film. Directly following Watchmen in 1988, he contributed covers to The Phantom and worked on Action Comics #600 and #601.
Highlights in the 1990's included writing the World's Finest miniseries, drawing Give Me Liberty (and the rest of the Martha Washington series), writing the first Batman Vs. Predator crossover, inking Rick Veitch and Stephen R. Bissette for half of Alan Moore's 1963, writing Superman: Kal, Savage Hulk #1 (which he wrote, penciled, inked, colored and lettered) and drawing the DC/Marvel Amalgam character "Super-Soldier". Among many other covers, one-shots and minor works, Gibbons worked with Alan Moore again briefly on Judgment Day, on the first issue of Kitchen Sink Press' The Spirit: The New Adventures and within the pages of the Alan Moore Songbook. In 1999 he penciled and inked the Star Wars: Vader's Quest miniseries. In December 2001 Gibbons helped Stan Lee re-imagine Green Lantern in the pages of Just Imagine... Stan Lee creating Green Lantern.
In the early 2000's Gibbons wrote Captain America, produced covers for Geoff Johns' JSA, as well as writing and drawing the graphic novel The Originals. He wrote The Rann/Thanagar War and returned to the Green Lantern Corps with Green Lantern Corps: Recharge, which spun off into an ongoing, Gibbons-written series in 2006. Gibbons was involved in two series released by DC when they acquired American rights to the IPC stable of characters. He provided covers for Albion and wrote the Albion spin-off Thunderbolt Jaxon. He provided covers for Action Comics #841–843 and co-penciled (with Ethan van Sciver) an issue of Green Lantern: Sinestro Corps. He contributed to the ongoing Green Lantern Corps title on issues #18-20 and in the late 2000s, he provided new covers to IDW Publishing's reprints of his Doctor Who comics. He also designed the logo for Oni Press.
Works outside of comics include providing the background art for the computer game Beneath a Steel Sky, the cover to K, the debut album by psychedelic rock band Kula Shaker and served as a consultant on the Watchmen film.

His first break into comics was in 1994, working for several independent publishers like the now-defunct London Night Studios, and by 1999, Georges had moved to Georgia, joining the ranks of Atlanta-based Gaijin Studios and doing regular work for DC Comics. Georges’ first regular ongoing monthly comic book was Bishop: The Last X-Man published by Marvel Comics, followed by Gambit, Deadpool, and Weapon X. In 2006, Wildstorm (DC) Comics paired Georges with Hollywood screenwriter John Ridley, for The American Way, a controversial comic book mini-series set in the turbulent 1960’s.
Soon after, Georges was hand-picked by Buffy the Vampire Slayer’s creator Joss Whedon, to be the regular artist of the highly anticipated Buffy “Seasons Eight and Nine” – the comic book continuation of the popular Fox Television series. Fox Home Entertainment produced motion comics based on the first 19 issues of Season Eight. In addition to being an incredibly charming person, Georges is a man of many hats: adventurer, scholar, Prince aficionado, Godzilla fan, sometimes table dancer… but above all these, “Comic Book Artist” seems to best fit this man of mirth, mystery and intrigue!

Rivera's best-known painted work is Mythos, a series of six richly-painted origin stories written by Paul Jenkins. Originally published as one-shots, it was collected into a hardcover edition in 2008. He now limits his painted work to covers including The Avengers, The Twelve, The Iliad, The Amazing Spider-Man, Fantastic Four and Wolverine, among many others. Most recently, he penciled 6 issues of Mark Waid’s Daredevil run with his father, Joe Rivera, inking the issues, for which they received 2 Eisners.
