13 COVERS: A JULIUS SCHWARTZ Birthday Celebration

The late visionary was born 105 years ago…

If the late Julius Schwartz had Stan Lee’s gift for showmanship, he would have been Stan Lee. Seriously, of all the writers, artists and editors to ever work for DC, he’s probably the one with the broadest impact, giving readers the most recognizable versions of their favorite characters.

Schwartz was born June 19, 1915 — 105 years ago. He’s not only the prime architect of the Silver Age, he also had an enormous impact on the Bronze Age.

Need proof? Dig this 13 COVERS salute — featuring characters and concepts that Schwartz either created or revolutionized.
