Mick Anglo, Creator Of Marvelman, Passes

Mick Anglo died last week, aged 96, Bleeding Cool has confirmed.

Novelist and comic book creator in the forties, fifties and sixties, it was his recreation of Captain Marvel as Marvelman for L Miller And Son for which he will be most remembered, an early British superhero character, writing over seven hundred issues of Marvelman, Young Marvelman and Marvelman Family.

The character was revived by Alan Moore, Garry Leach and Dez Skinn in Warrior Magazine, and was one of the first revisionist superhero comic books that inform much of the modern English speaking comic book market.

Recently, Marvel Comics bought all remaining rights to the character and began reprinting selections of his work on the character.

He also owned his own comics production company, Gower Studios, employing the likes of Don Lawrence and later comedian Bob Monkhouse. He also licensed work to Europe, translated European comics for the British market, along with repackaged DC Comics superhero work.

One of the many novels by Mick Anglo, under a pseudonym.
