Also Credited As:
Shiro, Lane

He began as an editorial assistant at Marvel Comics in 1972. At Marvel, he wrote Ghost Rider, It the Living Colossus in Astonishing Tales, Luke Cage in Hero for Hire and Power Man, Tigra in Marvel Chillers, The Champions, and Captain America. He also served as editor of Marvel's black and white magazine line for a time.

For DC Comics, he worked as a writer and story editor. In addition to two runs on Black Lightning (one in the 1970's, the other in the 1990's), in the 1980's he revamped Hawkman and Hawkwoman with artist Richard Howell in the mini-series Shadow War of Hawkman. The mini-series led to a regular series which he initially wrote.

He is the co-author (with his fellow Comic Buyer's Guide columnist Bob Ingersoll) of the short story If Wishes Were Horses... (which was published in The Ultimate Super Villains in 1996) and the novels Captain America: Liberty's Torch (1998) and Star Trek: The Case Of The Colonist's Corpse (2003).

He writes a regular column for the Comics Buyer's Guide, called Tony's Tips. This has resulted in a regular (and, given the different demands of the medium, much more frequent) online column/blog called Tony's Online Tips.

He has also recently worked on translating foreign language Disney comics and revamping the wording for the US such as "Walt Disney's Uncle Scrooge #354". Also, he has recently announced on his column that he plans on doing new comic book work. He has said that he will work on comics for Heroic Publishing, probably working on that company's superheroine Tigress.

Date of Birth: December 22, 1951
