From the legendary golden- and silver age comic book writer and editor Robert Kanigher, a 1943 professional writing book.
Kanigher's career as a writer started early, with his short stories and poetry being published in magazines. He won The New York Times Collegiate Short Story Contest in 1932. In the late 1930s and early 1940s, Kanigher also wrote for radio, film, and authored several plays.
Kanigher's career spanned five decades. His earliest comics work was in such titles as Blue Beetle, Steel Sterling, and Captain Marvel Adventures. He joined DC Comics in 1945 and was involved with the Wonder Woman franchise for over twenty years, taking over the scripting from creator William Moulton Marston. In addition, Kanigher spent many years in charge of DC's war titles, as well as creating the character Sgt. Rock. Kanigher scripted what is considered the first Silver Age comic book story, "Mystery of the Human Thunderbolt!" which introduced the Barry Allen version of the Flash in Showcase #4 (1956).
