Martin Pasko

Martin Pasko

Martin Pasko is a true living legend. Martin started working for DC Comics in 1973 and began his long association with Superman, as a result of his association with long-time editor Julius Schwartz. As a frequent contributor to Schwartz's letter columns, beginning in 1968, Pasko had been nicknamed "Pesky Pasko," in acknowledgment of the fact that his comments were more often than not acutely critical.

A veteran writer, story-editor and producer in a diverse array of media, including live-action and animated television, Pasko has helped translate many comics properties to TV, including Superman, The Tick, and Cadillacs & Dinosaurs, and has story edited and written for such series as My Little Pony, G.I. Joe, and Batman: The Animated Series, for which he won a Daytime Emmy® Award. He is also a co-writer of the animated feature Batman: Mask of The Phantasm. Martin has worked for many comics publishers, but is best known for his work with DC, having written Superman in many media, including children’s books and webisodes as well as comics, and co-created the Bronze Age retconning of Dr. Fate that is the basis of the character’s current, long-lived incarnation. A former DC Comics Group Editor, he is the author of several books including The DC Vault and co-author of The Superman Encyclopedia (with Robert Greenberger).

Today, Martin owns and operates Martin Pasko Creative Development. MPCD is a content supplier and consultancy specializing in developing branded entertainment properties such as comics and toy lines for transmedia storytelling applications, as well as more traditional TV, film, web content, print media, and consumer product licensing.
