(Writer/Artist – Action Comics; The Amazing Spider-Man; Captain America; Daredevil; Fantastic Four; Spider-Girl; Star Wars; Supergirl; Superman; Teen Titans; Thor; X-Factor)

Frenz’s other work includes such titles as The Mighty Thor, Ka-Zar the Savage, The Further Adventures of Indiana Jones, Star Wars, Marvel Saga, Thunderstrike, and Superman. He is one of a very few artists to hold down a regular stint on both Amazing Spider-Man and Superman.

When DC Comics decided to change Superman’s costume and powers, it was Frenz’s design that was chosen for Superman’s new look. Frenz has a history of working on books where the characters are not in their original costumes/identities. Spider-Man wore his black costume, Thor took on a new secret identity and look, and Superman changed costumes and powers, all while Frenz was the regular artist on their titles.

Frenz is known for his frequent collaborations with writer DeFalco, including the short-lived series A-Next. Several of Frenz’s creations/co-creations have gone on to be featured in regular or limited series at both Marvel and DC, including Thunderstrike, New Warriors and Strange Visitor. His characters for Marvel’s MC2 line have produced series featuring A-Next, J2, DarkDevil, The Buzz and the only female character to reach one hundred consecutive issues at Marvel, Spider-Girl. DeFalco has called Frenz one of his favorite collaborators, and the creative team of DeFalco, Frenz and inker Josef Rubinstein produced one of the most acclaimed runs on The Amazing Spider-Man.
