Gardner Fox

Search for 'Gardner Fox' on Amazon

Perhaps no creator's appearance in comics was quite so essential as that of Gardner Fox. Indeed, he was the initial "bridge" between Earth 1 and Earth 2. In the pages of The Flash, Barry Allen discovered that the comics he read as a kid--All-Star and the like--were a key to understanding a strange new Earth that he accidentally found. Why? Well, All-Star's most prolific author, Gardner Fox, essentially "channeled" his way to Earth 2 through his dreams. When he dreamt, he actually saw the events transpiring on Earth 2, and then wrote them down in comic book form.

Another way of looking at the importance of the character of Gardner Fox is that you can have multiple earths without Fox--but you can't have Earth 2.
