Bob Wiacek’s prolific career as a comic book artist began in the mid-1970s. He has since worked as an inker for DC, Marvel, Dark Horse, and Valiant on popular titles ranging from Batman to Star Wars; and he is currently fulfilling commission requests for fans on his Facebook page and preparing an upcoming Kickstarter project.
